New Today: Almanac of the Infamous, the Incredible and the Ignored by Juanita Rose Violini

“Sometimes the world’s magic leaks out,” Juanita Rose Violini writes in her introduction to Almanac of the Infamous, the Incredible and the Ignored (Weiser Books). “Mystery does that; it can never be truly contained. Jagged cracks occasionally split the carefully laid constructs of our safe and predictable lives, and the unexplained tumbles forth into our awareness.”Link
If this is not something that you know for certain, it is something that you’ve always suspected: that the thing you look at isn’t always what you see.

That is the subtext -- always -- of Violini’s wonderful book, a work that is also an almanac in the proper sense of the word. Mysterious crystal skulls of unknown origin. Green children with inexplicable pasts. Phantom hitchhikers grabbing rides on the backs of passing motorcycles. Flakes of flesh that fall from the sky.

With skill, panache and a real sleuth's quest for the unknowable detail, in Almanac of the Infamous, the Incredible and the Ignored, Violini delivers a world most of us can't even begin to imagine. This is something quite beyond strange occurrences. Rather, Violini brings us a whole year’s worth of unexplained mysteries with which to confuse our staid little hearts: a new one, each and every day.

Be afraid! This one could change your life.
