Investigating the Impossible
Sea-Serpents in the Air, Volcanoes that Aren't, and Other Out-of-Place Mysteries

by Ulrich Magin

Trade Paperback, 240 Pages

$17.95, ISBN: 1933665521

Genre(s): UFOs Cryptozoology Fortean Historical Mysteries

Surviving plesiosaurs in lakes...

Petrified ships on mountaintops...

Limestone mountains that suddenly erupt as volcanoes but leave no trace of lava flows… 

All these are certainly impossible things. Yet they happen, again and again, in all parts of the world. And these events are witnessed by scores of people. 

Steering a clear course between blind belief and simple skepticism, fortean researcher Ulrich Magin delves into these stories with both a critical eye and a great fascination for the wonders of our world to unravel the many mysteries held by the air, earth, fire, and water.

What they're saying:

"This is another excellent book in the fields of Forteana and cryptozoology which I thoroughly recommend...What I really enjoyed about this book is that it takes something well known and somewhat over-emphasized within Forteana (eg crop circles) and cryptozoology (sea serpents) and finds a new niche within those common themes, something wondrous, startling and rare. Each story is thoroughly examined and meticulously referenced..." — Richard Muirhead, Flying Snake

"Ulrich Magin's book is characterized by deep research…Because we live in the age of the world wide web which contains so much superficial and false data, such primary sources are of the utmost importance… And this is were Magin's book is really grounded regarding reports and/or experiences of the strange…Magin's book well distances itself —and with clear added value—from the many and superficial publications aimed at a sensation-hungry audience. It is a coffee-table book all right, but one that will generate endless and valuable discussions. I think that the book will encourage all who are interested in anomalies to view things from a holistic perspective, especially regarding the observer in his or her specific context. To sum up the content of the book: You should not take for gold all that glitters, but it may well be worth scratching the surface to see if one does not at least encounter silver below." — Andreas Trottmann, Zeitschrift für Anomalistik
