Concerning various types of anomalous phenomena including UFOs, strange falls of both organic and inorganic materials from the sky, odd weather patterns, the possible existence of creatures generally believed to be mythological, disappearances of people, and many other phenomena, the book is considered to be the first of the specific topic of anomalistics. A procession of the damned.

Table of Contents Come, Steam Engine Time an introduction by Jack Womack THE BOOK OF THE DAMNED1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 1. This Ebook is part of the Baen Books Charles Fort Ebook Collection. This is a work of fiction. All the characters and events portrayed in this book are fictional, and any resemblance to real people or incidents is purely coincidental.

This is the first of Fort's four books Fort attempts, almost tongue in cheek, to construct a cosmology which could explain these phenomena.

This is the first of Fort's four books. Fort discusses numerous unexplained phenomena, many of which would today be categorized as UFOs. Fort gives examples of many other strange happenings, rains of fish, blood, insects, and so on. Fort attempts, almost tongue in cheek, to construct a cosmology which could explain these phenomena. He proposes that the Earth's gravity only extends about 20 miles out, and that there are vast 'lands in the sky' passing above us, normally unseen

Charles Fort's Book of the Damned later became the springboard for the Fortean Times magazine. I started this book thinking Fort was some kind of proto-Alex Jones, 20th century conspiracy theorist, but I was missing the point.

Charles Fort's Book of the Damned later became the springboard for the Fortean Times magazine. What Fort was really getting at, with his double-edged sword, wasn't just to list the weird and wonderful but to confront the ongoing denial, or over-simple explanations, given by experts and scientists at the time, in response to these stories – that denial was the driver for his writing the book – the clue is, as they say, in the title.

By damned,' wrote Charles Fort in 1919, 'I mean the excluded. The Book of the Damnedwhispered that there was something very wrong with how we thought about the world. We shall have a procession of the data that Science has excluded. Fort's record of the unknown was one of the first to expose us to visitors from space, monsters, poltergeists, and floating islands. Fort deliberately pushed his 'damned facts' on his readers, insisting that science had constructed its convenienttheories only by ignoring those facts that gave us trouble.

  • I thought this would be far more interesting but it was a real slog to get through. Pages after pages of examples of things supposedly fallen from the sky with no coherent possible explanations tying them together.

  • I have long been wanting to read the book but couldn't find a copy and I never thought of it while on line till now. Amazon made it available at a very good price and it is in a very readable format.

    The book itself is exactly what I expected, a listing of unusual and uncanny events over several periods of time and some thoughts on HOW or IF they are connected. It points out that explanations of known events in the past have ranged from " It couldn't have happened, it is impossible and There is no theory for that to happen, so it couldn't have" for events like meteors and other quote impossible unquote events.
    Charles Fort points out sources for his information.

    I can't help feeling; he wrote some of the book with his tongue in his cheek, for some of the explanations, his and the official ones. The events however are traceable and did occur.

    These are the Damned by the official explanations as these CAN'T HAPPEN even though they did, but not officially. Just in Reality, in history, they are ignored, denied, forgotten. Rocks and other objects can't fall from the sky and We Will Deny It to our last breath!!! Jupiter has no moons, WE deny it, Rocks don't fall from the sky, We deny it. The events in this book didn't happen We deny it! Charles reports the events and "coincidences" of events, how is arguable, what isn't, why is open for debate, where is documented. So are many "official explanations" that don't explain or fit the facts. Don't read this for serius explanations but for the events and their descriptions and you will leave and astonished both as to what happened and the idiots who denied it and their descriptions of why it couldn't have happened.

    If Charles Fort had lived later, he would have had a ball dealing with Flying SAucers and UFOs but this preceded them or their fame.

  • A book filled with journalistic scourings of Charles Fort. Fort spent most of his life in the libraries of London and New York City. Interested by topics that mainstream science had ignored. All his information represented here has been printed by newspapers around the world. Unusual events and characters that will titillate and tease your imagination with Mr. Fort clever writing and his humorous theories.
    I was inspired to purchase this volume after buying a DVD of the classic TV series "One Step Beyond" which based many of it's unique programs on Mr. Fort's works.
    This book "The Book of the Damned" contains all four of Charles Fort's published books: "The Book of the Damned," "Lo!," "New Lands," and "Wild Talents." A wonderful romp into a world of strange encounters with UFOs,odd showers of fish, crabs, periwinkles, and more. A vast array of events that sciences refuses to discuss or even begin to rationally explain.
    Mr. Fort has a charming journalistic style of the late 1900s that some might not find appealing but his collection of the odd and unusual makes the foray into this 1126 volume worth the read. At times humorous and at times harrowing a read that will have you looking differently at the world around you and wondering at everything out there.
    I recommend this to hungry minds and souls that enjoy the Fortean facts about the world.

  • How I wish I had started out as a reader with this book! In just about every way this guy's view coincides with whatever it has taken myself a life to learn. Ask any possible question, from any possible or impossible angle...ask another ...then yet one more... Never declare you've gor the ultimate truth. Never state what a 'jaw-dropper' you have found, as conclusions are something of such a vain nature. I'm almost in love With this guy. He is also very witty and fun to read, holding endless data from endless journals and officially recognised sources. I adore his view of dogmatic science, esp. where he 'proves' that a groundnut is the same as a camel...Completely unorthodox, this must have been something so far out in 1919! And the book still holds today.

  • The cornerstone of paranormal and out there alternative topics in the modern times, that being said it is just an endless stream of conscience that is nearly impossible to follow. Interesting ideas but really impossible for anyone to follow.

  • Fort is the guy who inspired everything from Heinlein to the Fortean Times, yet this book is almost unreadably boring and repetitive. Read the Charles Fort wiki and save yourself the pain.

  • The author just loves to display his great wit to the point of putting the reader asleep. The information he is discussing is interesting if you can get past the narrative which keeps getting repeated to the point of being a distraction from an subject. The author makes some great points in the beginning of the book concerning the short comings of the established scientific community, but he goes on to repeat himself so many times it was exhausting to read. I had to force myself to finish the book.

  • Excellent read if you can get used to how Fort writes. Everything about this book makes you think about how we see the world. Fort is relevant still today.
