From the upper Nile to the lower Ganges, from the roof of the world in Tibet to remote hamlets in West Virginia, John A. Keel has long been on the trail of weird creatures and strange phenomena.

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.

No one alive is better qualified to report on and interpret the fantastic evidence gathered in this book.

A syndicated columnist, John Keel's writings have appeared throughout the world for Playboy, FATE, SAGA, High Times, and other popular magazines, and he has appeared on televisions shows such as the Tonight Show, David Letterman, and What's My Line. The film based on his book, The Mothman Prophecies, starring Richard Gere and Laura Linney, has become a cult classic.

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.

Interesting, but it drags

Interesting topic but audio quality is less than stellar and the reader drones a bit as a consequence. I enjoy Keeles writing but this particular book was not my favorite.

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.

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.
