about this item

This creepy compendium offers pseudo-science fun for the whole post-truth family! From ancient times to the Men In Black, the book describes secret orders, clandestine groups, occult rituals, alien sightings, government plots, and conspiracy theories. The book’s 200 entries are a witch’s brew of alternative facts, anonymous sources, and unattributed quotes, with a heaping helping of popular culture, TV shows, films, urban myth, and folklore. Some of the entries are written in the first person as stories the author experienced or heard second-hand from others. While the book concentrates on the US, some entries offer an international flavor, reporting on Asian organized crime and Adolf ******’s occult experiments. Entries have no citations, and the further reading section lists an abundance of less-credible web sites. B&w photos and illustrations are included. Author Nick Redfern is a self-educated ‘ufologist’ who has written many books on UFOs, aliens, the paranormal, zombies, and Bigfoot. He has appeared on the History Channel, the National Geographic Channel, and the Syfy Channel. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
