Book summary

Flying saucers, telekinesis, sudden showers of fish from the sky, and spontaneous combustion are a few of the unexplained phenomena that Charles Fort (18741932) labeled "damned"  his term for mysteries dismissed by scientific orthodoxy. This exploration of the gray area between science and fantasy was the prototype for extraterrestrial speculations and helped promote the development of science fiction.
