Intermediate States: The Anomalist 13

No current Talk conversations about this book.
There were some definite winners in this collection. John Repion’s “Suspension of Disbelief” discussed the legend of a clown in a tub pulled by geese and how it supposedly caused the Yarmouth Bridge disaster of 1845. This research was right up my alley, investigating a small bit of history and determining if it is made of truth or fable. “The Black Flash of Cape Cod: True Heir of Spring-Heeled Jack” by Theo Paijams was entirely new to me. I had not before read of an entity similar to Springheeled Jack terrorizing New England as late as 1945. His research and speculation on who or what the creature may have been were interesting indeed, including the appendix to the article that outlined similar sightings across the United States. Loren Coleman, whose work in cryptozoology made him known to before reading him in this collection, penned “Between Worlds: The Three Nephites,” and while I like Coleman’s work in other places, this article was sort of doomed with me because I tend to find attempts to prove through history points of religious faith tiresome. Even so, it was still an interesting read. Read my entire review here: http://ireadoddbooks.com/intermediate-states-edited-by-patrick-huyghe-and-dennis... ( )
Between official facts and public fantasies, there are Intermediate Staes. An anthology of nonfiction stories dealing with such subjects as the first sea serpent sighting, ayahuasca, medieval saints and mystics, a flying saucer movie, out-of-body experiences, a phantomlike creature that plagued Provincetown in the 1930s, alien eating habits, technology to communicate directly with the dead, and the reports of anomalous lights, sounds, weather, and animal behavior that are said to occur before earthquakes.
