"Juanita Rose Violini's Almanac of the Infamous, Incredible and the Ignored is 365 days of wonder and fascination. It is amazing what peculiar things happen to people in this ever so strange world of ours. A mindopening (and bending) delight!" Whitley Strieber "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, Juanita 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." --Linda L. Richards, author of Death Was The Other Woman and editor of January Magazine "This is really delightful--Charles Fort would have endorsed it enthusiastically!" --Colin Wilson, author of The Outsider "From the Crystal Skull to Peking Man, this is the only believable history of the world I have ever encountered." --Lemony Snicket "The Almanac makes a charming and often enlightening read. Enjoy." --Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., a.k.a. Dr. Quantum, author of Dr. Quantum's Little Book of Big Ideas
