More of the same, with more terrifying illustrations
on 12 December 2012
More of the same sorts of 'unexplained' stories, gathered together from the archives of the Fortean Times 'It Happened To Me' column. Some of them seem daft, some of them just plain ridiculous. But a few of them do make you think. And one or two of them might just make you rush to turn a few lights on or to go and investigate that strange sound you just heard... except that you won't really want to do that, not having seen some of the photographic illustrations in this book. They're all set up, of course, none of them are real... yet some of them are so downright chilling that they manage to add more than a hint of terrifying menace to the stories they are accompanying.
The most terrifying picture of them all isn't even an illustration of a particularly spooky entity, it's just a representation of a man in a phone kiosk in Germany. The chap's only a model and the story isn't even scary in any way but, dear God, that picture will chill your blood. It's supposed to be a friend of Darren Ryden, the author of that particular tale and I'm sure the man's a lovely fellow and all that but, take my advice, don't flick past page 125 without arming yourself first with a nice stiff brandy. You'll need it.
