This tenth “Big Book” from DC’s Paradox Press is one of the strangest ones yet. It’s written by Doug Moench and narrated by the ghostly image of Charles Fort (who made a career of cataloging strange phenomena before his death in 1932). Together, they take you on a tour of a world which science has no answers for.
