Can’t wait to hear about the next Bigfoot sighting? Do you search the skies looking for UFOs? Or do you just find such phenomena fascinating to read about? If so, this is the book you’ve been waiting for. Clark, author of the multivolume UFO Encyclopedia (1998), has compiled this attractively priced paperback of paranormal sightings and activities from the U.S. and across the world, from ancient times to the present day. This work covers everything from sewer-dwelling alligators to the Yowie (an ape-man who purportedly has lived in Australia for more than 300 years) and is both comprehensive and engaging. What is most striking about the narrative is the straightforward way in which Clark depicts both the phenomena described and the people who have experienced them without any bias or dismissal of claims that are made. In other words, he treats these individuals as ordinary people who have undoubtedly witnessed something extraordinary that cannot be easily explained. By the same token, he is not afraid to call out hucksters and hoaxes. Overall, a very captivating read and a must for anyone interested in paranormal phenomena. --Sylvia Ashwell
