A very entertaining read which works best as an introduction to the bizarre, the mysterious and the just plain odd, rather then as a full blown or in depth examination of such phenomena. But it is a lot of fun, written in an easy going, engaging style which makes me want to hunt out more work by the different contributors.

Living up to its title, this is an entertaining. curious and intriguing collection of mysterious happenings, thoughts and the unexplained.

Filled with strange occurrences and even more bizarre characters, it also has links for those who like their oddities to have more space than just one reference book.

An unusual, engaging and thought-provoking collection of the downright weird.

Worth escaping into.

Interesting book for dipping into, not a book to sit and read for long periods. Can be good for those of us who like to follow up on the stories as there are links for further reading and research.

Must read for anyone interested in the word, the eerie, the uncanny. Great mixture of science, internet and good old human quirks.
