He has lived in New York, Hollywood, New Orleans, Paris, Baghdad, Cairo, Calcutta, and a number of exotic places in between, and is an acknowledged expert on the world of the paranormal.

Glad to have it read to me

Keel was a prolific collector of Forteana, but I fear his scholarship was subservient to his editorial musings and personal theories. A thought provoking collection of research regardless.

Some of KEELS best work. Mandatory reading

mandatory reading for all of John Keel fans. I've read all his work and in some cases two or three times such as this book it's even better on Audible.

Cool Stories...but from years ago

I guess I didn't realize that most of the stories covered in this book are old and happened a long time ago. I was hoping for something more current. I had read/heard about many of them before.

pretty good.

I liked this book quit a bit, my biggest issue was I did not know that it was written in 1994. the author mostly talks about stuff from the 60s so it is a bit dated, but still has good info and is enjoyable.
