Brainwashing is a Cinch! Maratta 1966 Of course I am interested in any book that would allow me to bend people to my will. (The longer I am in this profession, I realize that I really want to be a

Unexplained, aliens, ghosts, weird stuff, and of course the category defying label of WTF.
The End is Near
Hide! Blackschleger 1959 I better read this book quickly. Evidently the end is near – or not so near, since it is 2017. (Although there has been a plague of insanity in the USA that makes me wonder.) Our guy

We Are Not Alone…
Flying Saucers, Serious Business Edwards 1966 Submitter: My local library has a whole shelf of dusty old books on UFOs and aliens. There must have been a serious need for the collection as all of these books are from the
Death in a Bottle
The Brown Bottle Jones 1983 Submitter: Found this in storage (at least that’s our saving grace – this wasn’t on the shelf!) of a small town public library. I have now weeded it. It’s a picture book about a caterpillar who is
The Psychic Sasquatch and their UFO Connection Laperitis 1998 I am a sucker for books like this on bigfoot, ufos, the Bermuda Triangle and all the other stuff that hangs out in the 000’s. I have been known to settle
