4.0 out of 5 stars More Fortean fun 11 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback
More first-hand paranormal high-jinks, and the quality is every bit as high as the previous volume. The chapter on lost and found objects tries patience somewhat, as they're all pretty identical, but the ghost stories pick up the slack by being good and scary and totally, totally inexplicable. Best of all is the haunted Edinburgh flat, the "ghost" of which claims not to be from the past at all... and the truly horrifying "cut-out man" who stalks a water-processing plant. Don't read alone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking and highly entertaining 4 Jan 2013
By Hermes Love TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love these books. Real and verbatim tales, often with other stories that have been volunteered by others in response to one of the initial accounts. These range from the bizarre (a young boy fills a jar with vinegar and baking soda, closes the lid tightly and - when nothing happens - promptly forgets about it. One particularly violent electrical thunderstorm and several months later the jar is rediscovered, intact and containing a large, dead frog...)... to the strangely comforting (an impoverished little kid desperately wishes he could afford a chocolate bar. Moments later, he spots a strange looking hailstone which defrosts in his hand to reveal... the exact change needed for his sugar high).

The most memorable story for me is on page 75, under the title 'Sounds and Smells'. I'm not going to ruin that one for you but, suffice to say, if you live near any kind of woodland I would advise you to read that one with the light on. Even the illustration to that one is sinister. In fact, that is one of the most memorable aspects to each of these volumes - the extraordinarily evocative photographs that accompany the stories. For instance, a series of accounts relating to various soft toys that have disappeared is brilliantly combined with a photograph of a little teddy bear caught in the beam of a ufo. That's presumably what happens to my keys, my wallet and any article I want in the house but can't find. Quite a cute picture, that one. Mind you, that light beam may well be zombifying the aforementioned bear, turning him into something really rather nasty.

On that subject, may I recommend to you the illustration on page 140 - the 'Spectral Sock Swiper'. A sinister figure with its hand stretched out. Sort of like the taxman, only even more terrifying. Hard to believe? You're telling me!

5.0 out of 5 stars fortean fun 24 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As you'd expect with fortean times, fun strange, and sometimes a bit dark. No doubting how bizarre the human mind really is. Couldn't put it down. I've read all 4 volumes.

Having been a fan of the Fortean Times for 20 years or more I very much enjoyed this. The readers' own experiences are the most interesting part of the magazine for me. What strangeness there is out there!
