it was ok
bookshelves: pulp-fiction
Recommended to Michael by: serendipity
Recommended for: young adults with imagination
Read in January, 1981

This book consists of seven accounts of paranormal experiences, with an emphasis on close encounters with possibly alien beings, targeting a young adult audience, and with little effort to draw the line between fact and fiction. The book is similar in tone and style to the authors' other work, Our Mysterious World, but with the difference that each of the stories goes for several pages, and is written as a narrative. Although some of the stories contain elements from the popular mythology of the paranormal, such as the "Men in Black," none of them are familiar as direct accounts - they appear to be fictional, not based on actual claims. Nevertheless, they should stimulate the imaginations of young minds, and I found them very enjoyable. The illustrations are terribly unprofessional, but in that sense will not intimidate youth of limited artistic talents, who may find it possible to imitate them.
