Darklore is one of those books that will both challenge and delight you with the quality of its essays, written by some of the most important and respected reasearchers of paranormal events.

Darklore is an anthology compilated and edited by Greg Taylor, the creator of the news website Daily Grail ([...] In it Greg has asked the contribution of notable figures such as Daniel Pinchbeck, Michael Prescott, Loren Coleman, Nick Redfern, Robert Schoch and others; if you are a person with a deep interest in topics that are considered "heretic" by mainstream science an orthodox Academia, these names are surely familiar to you. This "forbidden" nature of the issues discussed in the essays is the very reason behind the name of the book (if you thought you will find in it magick potions or spells that your "potterian" friends are not familiar with, this is probably NOT the book for you).

Ranging from cryptozoology and the search of unknown hairy hominids, to UFOs and other more complex events, like the astounding simmilarities in the sounds described by the experimenters of different paranormal experiences --such as NDEs, OBEs, Marian apparitions and Close Encounters of the Third Kind-- Darklore will force you to stop viewing all these "weird" cases as isolated and with nothing in common; but in fact you will slowly begin to understand that deep down what we perceive and interpret as our "normal" reality, is nothing but a flimsy exterior layer that, should we dare to peel through it, reveals deeper and astounding levels, all fascinating and interconnected in ways we are just barely capable of glimpsing. Levels that are NOT absent of serious dangers, mind you, as Michael Prescott reminds to the paranormal enthusiast with his article "Hungry Ghosts".

Pick a copy of Darklore... I DARE YOU :-)

PS: And while you're at it, be sure to pay a visit to the Daily Grail website, but be cautious: exposure to its content can cause a severe level of addiction!

The only thing I really have to say is that this book and VOL. II just go from one end of weirdness to the other. BUY IT. No matter what your interests are, this book will at least ENTERTAIN you or whoever happens to pick it up off of your coffee table. I also found a few of the contributions to be informative to say the least.

The essays in this anthology will have you questioning basic assumptions or at least get you thinking a little differently.

The selections are fairly brief but filled to the brim with interesting insights and histories generally ignored by the media.

Kudos to editor Greg Taylor for getting the best of his contributors including Pinchbeck, Tymn and Redfern. The chapter on Terrance McKenna was an eye-opener.

I think this is a promising start to a regular journal or anthology series.

I've always been the sort of person that sought out the books on Bigfoot, UFOs or Terrence McKenna before reading through The Kite Runner or various Grisham novels (you know... the mainstream stuff). Something about the weird and strange, no matter how implausible, has always appealed to me. Partially this interest has developed from personal experiences with UFO sightings and other bizarre things outside normal explanations for reality. But the primary reason for my fascination is that deep inside I feel there is far more to be experienced than most people ever know. Cracks in the official explanations for reality show through on the fringes of society. We dull ourselves down through constant exposure to culture, but several hundred years ago we would have been thankful for visitations from our ancestors or discussions with plants. As the intelligence officer Major Murphy told Dr. Jacques Vallee on p.74 of Messengers of Deception regarding the failure for science to incorporate the price of information , "[In science] Suppose I gave you 95% of the data concerning a phenomenon. You're happy because you know 95% of the data. I know that this is the cheap part of the information. I still need the other 5% but I will have to pay a much higher price to get it!" Dark Lore is about that other 5%.

Dark Lore Volume 1 is the first of a now four volume series containing articles from the leading writers of fringe science. Edited by Greg Taylor, creator of the alternative news site The Daily Grail. In Dark Lore Volume 1, Greg has enlisted some of my favorite authors: Paul Devereux, Mitch Horowitz, John Higgs, Nick Redfern, Adam Gorightly Daniel Pinchbeck, Michael Prescott and Loren Coleman. If you follow the fields of heretical thought you'll be familiar with these names.

On buying this book, I had no Idea what to expect.
Eventually after the book had travelled over seas that not even I've seen yet it arrived in my mail.
I coulnd't put the book down! After my second day of reading, I finished it in a daze and scrabeled to my computer and ordered in the other three of them.
Darklore Vol. 1 is a casual read if you want it to be casual, but if you want it to be your bible, then so it is!
Darklore sets itself aside from other paranormal book because it challenges you to believe the accounts/encounters rather than persuading you do believe them.

Brilliance!

Having contributed one of the 18 stories in this anthology of the paranormal, I admit to be being a bit biased in giving it five stars, but I believe I can honestly say that I would give it five stars even if I had not contributed to it.

The book touches upon many aspects of the paranoral, including spirit communication and influence,deathbed visions, apparations of the dead, templar revelations, UFO's, near-death experiences, the Great Sphinx, and even "Big Foot." Each story is by a different author, nearly all of them well known in the field. They include Michael Grosso, Paul Devereux, Michael Prescott, and Mitch Horowitz.

The various stories are just the right length for a good bedside book. Before seeing this book, I was wondering what to give several friends for Christmas. Now I have the perfect gift for them.
