2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Kurt A. Johnson on 4 Jun. 2004
Format: Hardcover
This book is the nineteenth in the Catalogue of Anomalies, and has a companion entitled, Ancient Infrastructure. This book is divided into eight chapters: ancient astronomical observatories; miscellaneous ancient structures; forts; ancient furnaces, smelters, hearths; pyramids, especially the great pyramid; cities and complexes; ancient towers; and anomalous stone chambers and passage graves. Each entry has a clearly delineated description, data evaluation, anomaly evaluation, possible explanation, list of similar and related phenomena, and then an in-depth examination of the structure.
This is quite a fascinating book! Unlike some books on similar subjects, this book treats its subjects in a no-nonsense, scientific manner, providing a real understanding of the structures. My one complaint against this book is that it reads like a textbook, being too often dry, making it rather heavy for the light reader. That said, though, this is a great book on a fascinating subject. If you are interested in anomalous structures, then I cannot recommend this book too much!

Even handed and responsible treatment of the subject 15 Sept. 2008
By Terry Sofian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
William Corliss was a respected scientist and science writer for NASA. He is able to both evaluate information and present it in a readable and non sensational fashion. In a series of "Catalogs of Anomalies" Corliss continues the work of Charles Fort, locating information that appears to contradict current theories and compiling that information for other researchers. The information in this book has been catagorized, evaluated and presented in an even handed manner. The prose is very much matter of fact. The illustrations ar somewhat sparse and some did not print very well, but they generally illustrate Corliss' points well enough.

This book is worth getting for the sections on the Great Pyramids alone. The other information is just as interesting.

Astounding and delightful 19 Oct. 2013
By Stephen E. Hughes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Professor William Corliss spent his lifetime collecting, studying , categorizing and reporting a host of unexplained aspects of Humankind. From Archeology to Biology, from electromagnetics to the universes. He has a colorful encyclopedia of volumes of profound works based on concert investigation and sources. Sadly overlooked by far too many. His books are a treasure trove of Sherlock Homes investigations that will bewilder, astound, delight and enthrall you.
