In the jungle of Ujung Kulon, Dominique, a wildlife sound-recordist, has disappeared. Mitchell, her cameraman, has been searching for her for months without success. Exhausted and feverish, he... More > returns to London, where Villiers, Dominique’s husband, suspicious and determined to find out the truth, mounts his own search. Together the two men travel back to the reserve, their mutual distrust as thick between them as the sweltering humidity. The oppressive atmosphere of the reserve begins to unhinge their minds, as Mitchell, keeping his secrets to himself, obstructs their search, taunting Villiers with the failure of his marriage. Villiers senses how the landscape may have triggered Dominique’s delicately balanced mind and convinced she is still alive, presses on. Deep in the heart of the equatorial wilderness, Dominique, Villiers and Mitchell are enmeshed in a dark triangle of obsession, betrayal and spiralling jealousy, their vulnerabilities constantly exposed by the raw primeval power of the rainforest.< Less

The Book Of The Damned (Fortean writings) By Charles Fort
Paperback: $19.51
Prints in 3-5 business days
The first few chapters of the book deal largely with explaining Fort's thesis. As a particular instance, he cites the strange glowing in the sky worldwide, which supposedly resulted due to the 1883... More > eruption of the volcano Krakatoa. Fort shows that such phenomenon had in fact preceded the eruption by several months. While Fort has a particular interest in strange "falls" - focusing quite a bit of the book on the falls of fish, frogs, and various unidentifiable materials - he does not focus exclusively on this category. He also has chapters discussing the findings of "thunderstones", which supposedly fell from the sky during lightning storms; a discussion of evidence for the existence of giants and fairies; a brief chapter on poltergeist phenomena; the disappearances of many people; the famous case of the Mary Celeste, a long section on a number of purported UFO sightings; and a mention of the famous "Devil's Footprints" mystery in 1855.
