"Remember the rain of frogs in the movie Magnolia? Straight out of Fort. Stones falling from the sky? Extraterrestrial visitors? Charles Fort broke the news back in the 1920s and 1930s. Theodore Dreaiser considered Fort an unrecognized genius and took his cosmic thories seriously. Ben Hecht celebrated him as a satiric wit. H.G. Wells and H.L Mencken damned him as a fraud. This odd, unique character emerges fully rounded in Jim Steinmeyer's fascinating, sympathetic biography. Fort was in a long line of homespun American eccentrics, the people who invented perpetual motion machines and wacko religions. A great humorist, he had a serious purpose: To send up pompous scientists by challenging their ordained laws of nature. He did so in a series of phantasmagorical, meticulously researched books with titles like X and Y and Lo! and The Book of the Damned, in which he recounted strange but true anomalies of the natural world."
-- RIchard Lingeman, author of Theodore Dreiser: An American Journey, and Sinclair Lewis: Rebel from Main Street

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...

The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
