    “This very peculiar book collects more than fifty well-documented types of strange phenomena operating beyond our limited conceptions of cause-effect and space-time that neither religion nor science can explain. A phenomenal reality that includes showers of frogs, levitation, phantom music, astral projection, mysterious disappearances, [and ‘Falls of liquids and mysterious oozings’]. Filled with oddly charming illustrations, Phenomena is truly a book of wonders. An absolute must for fans of The X-Files.” — New Metaphor Books
