Odd, Unusual, and occasionally scary!
on 9 February 2014
I have been a reader of "Fortean Times" magazine for 30 of its 40+ years of existence - the reason for such loyalty is that it is a truly interesting magazine, covering everything from ghosts and flying saucers to alien animals. The stories contained in "It Happened to Me!" volume 3 are taken from the "Readers' Letters" page, which for me, can often be one of the most consistently interesting parts of the magazine. This book lists a selection taken from readers' letters, both published and unpublished, over a number of years, and provides a host of interesting and unusual, (and sometimes very frightening) incidents or events for the reader to mull over. The authors of these letters appear to be ordinary people, (like you and me), whose lives have been touched by the unexplained. In most cases, it is often difficult for them to offer any reasonable explanation for the events they have described - Something that the skeptical reader, sitting comfortably in a favourite chair in a safe suburban environment may find hard to believe. But out on the moors, driving a lonely unlit road late on a stormy night, or alone in a creaky old house, on a summer afternoon, or even walking home from an evening out, sane and sensible people report odd, creepy, or unexplained incidents that were certainly outside their previous experience. Some of us may have even experienced similar events - Thinking of someone you haven't heard of for ages, when the phone rings, and it's them, or the bunch of lost keys that you turn the house upside down to find, that only return when you ask nicely for the borrower to please return them. All the books in this series are fascinating, and well worth a read, so buy them!
