In the original 'Scams From the Great Beyond', author and sceptic Peter Huston unmasked the amazing array of paranormal con artists littering the fringes of society today. From false psychics to crop circle hoaxers to New Age hucksters, Huston revealed exactly how these otherworldly swindlers get rich by fleecing the gullible and starry-eyed among us. In this book, Huston casts his critical eye further afield, exposing the latest fraudulent schemes and hard-to-believe scams being perpetrated in areas where people, passion and profits converge. Huston shows how skilled grifters are profiteering from such seemingly normal pursuits as the environmental movement, politics, the world of science and evangelical Christianity. He also delves deep into some truly bizarre subcultures and explores how slick operators manipulate believers in UFOs, mythical beasts, angels, black magic and the occult. Whether you are already a card-carrying sceptic or simply a student of fringe beliefs and weird behaviour, you are guaranteed to be entertained and informed by this twisted tour of hoaxes and hustles in America today.
