This Encyclopedia Forteana anthologizes the cult hero's four classic works on the strange, the unexplained, and the just plain weird: The Book of the Damned, Lo!, Wild Talents, and New Lands. It features Fort's complete, unabridged text and a subject index. Here are the four books that invented our understanding of the paranormal. These are cult hero Charles Fort's defining records of bizarre, haunting, strange, and inexplicable 'facts' for which science cannot account: Frogs falling from the skies. Mysterious airships in an age before flight. Monsters. Poltergeists. Floating islands. Teleportation (a term Fort invented). These are the works that moved novelist Theodore Dreiser to write: 'To me no one in the world has suggested the underlying depths and mysteries and possibilities as has Fort. To me he is simply stupendous.' Now, Fort's classic investigations are newly collected with a preface by biographer Jim Steinmeyer. Complete with a full subject index, here is the definitive Fort anthology for our times

Lo! by Charles Fort( Book )

25 editions published between 1931 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lo! was Charles Fort's third book. In it Fort examines a multitude of scientific anomalies. Fort is widely credited to have coined the now-popular term teleportation in this book, and here he ties his previous statements on what he referred to as the Super-Sargasso Sea into his beliefs on teleportation. He would later expand this theory to include purported mental and psychic phenomena in his fourth and final book, Wild Talents
New lands by Charles Fort( Book )

24 editions published between 1923 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are many books that tell of sightings of ghosts, aliens, and strange animals. But Charles Fort's ""New Lands"" is perhaps the only book in which whole continents, geographies, and, indeed, planetary systems themselves are seen in the same uncertain twilight of perception
Wild talents by Charles Fort( Book )

11 editions published between 1932 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like Fort's previous works, Wild Talents deals with a number of anomalous phenomena and Fort's ongoing attack on scientific dogma. Though not as well known as some of his other works, Wild Talents is arguably Fort's best work. Fort's writing style and tongue-in-cheek sense of self-deprecating humor is on full display in this book. As a result, this book is generally easier to read than his earlier works
