I am having a blast reading Jim Steinmeyer's new book, 'Charles Fort ( the man who invented the supernatural) '
It is a surprisingly fun read. Having read Mr. Steinmeyer's previous books, I knew the author's voice would be interesting in itself but I had no idea that the subject would captivate my interest so strongly.
I've tried to get into Charles Fort's own writings before and, as much as I've wanted too, never made it past the first bit of "the Book of the Damned'. My experience at the time was that the writing was too damned convoluted.
In his new forward to Fort's collected works, Steinmeyer suggests starting with "Lo" first and then "Wild Talents" before going back to his earlier works. That way you begin with Fort in his prime. It's going to be a treat to do so once I finish the biography. The biography brings the time and place of this unique individual to life. My interest is piqued.
I'm carrying Jim's new book at my three bookstores, I believe in it. You can order it right here through Richard's site by clicking on the image of the cover on the right hand side, scroll down a bit and you'll see it.
