The book of the damned by Charles Fort( Book )

94 editions published between 1919 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Welcome to a record of the damned"By damned," wrote Charles Fort in 1919, "I mean the excluded. We shall have a procession of the data that Science has excluded." Fort's survey of the unknown was one of the first to expose modern people to visitors from space, monsters, poltergeists, and floating islands. Frogs fall from the sky. Mysterious airships take flight in an age before the airplane. People disappear, reappear, and spontneously combust. This volume reintroduces the central and most influential work of Fort's career, in which he pushed us to ask: What is out there?

Lo! by Charles Fort( Book )

31 editions published between 1931 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 335 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 )

30 editions published between 1923 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Fort believed that no matter how honest scientists think they are, they are still influenced by various unconscious assumptions that prevent them from attaining true objectivity. In this book Fort tackles a great number of unexplained paranormal occurrences from a fresh and unbiased point of view. His writing is complex, violent and poetic, satirical and subtle, and profound. Long before the X-Files popularized the idea of objectively investigating paranormal events, Fort was investigating these happenings and chronicling his findings

Wild talents by Charles Fort( Book )

15 editions published between 1932 and 2015 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
The book of the damned : the collected works of Charles Fort by Charles Fort( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
