This Encyclopedia Forteana anthologizes the cult heroas four classic works on the strange, the unexplained, and the just plain weird: "The Book of the Damned, Lo , Wild Talents," and "New Lands," It features Fort's complete, unabridged text and a subject index.

Here are the four books that invented our understanding of the paranormal. These are cult hero Charles Fort's defining records of bizarre, haunting, strange, and inexplicable 'facts' for which science cannot account: Frogs falling from the skies. Mysterious airships in an age before flight. Monsters. Poltergeists. Floating islands. Teleportation (a term Fort invented).

These are the works that moved novelist Theodore Dreiser to write: To me no one in the world has suggested the underlying depths and mysteries and possibilities as has Fort. To me he is simply stupendous.

Now, Fort's classic investigations are newly collected with a preface by biographer Jim Steinmeyer. Complete with a full subject index, here is the definitive Fort anthology for our times.
