An amazing book which will create the most tremendous controversy the world of Science has known for hundreds of years. Ben Hecht says in the Chicago Daily News: "For every five people who read this book four will go insane.... I rush to surrender my homage. Whatever the purpose of Charles Fort, he has delighted me beyond all men who have written books in this world." "'The Book of the Damned' makes fascinating reading. No imaginative fiction writer could conjure up stranger visions than Mr. Fort creates in his collection of mysterious happenings all over the world." --The New York Tribune.
