Why are we hardwired for and connected to the supernatural? What about it attracts us, leads us, and obsesses us?
An academic in anomaly and called a bizarre fact hunter and master of the last thing you need to know, Nicholas Belardes – author, journalist, illustrator, poet, workshopper, and historian of the bizarre – seeks to answer these questions and more with his new book, A People’s History of the Peculiar. It's like Ripley's Believe it or Not in book form as Nick examines the unknown supernatural, super odd, and metaphysical legends in our history. From Alice in Wonderland Syndrome and the geographic mysteries of the Singing Sand Dunes, to the prophecies of Mothman and America's secret cities, Belardes’ compendium of all things weird is a delightful must-have for anyone hungry for more knowledge—supernatural or otherwise.
