"Unnatural Phenomena [is] a veritable treasure trove for those interested in the occult, the metaphysical, the inexplicable, the strange, and the bizarre in American history." - Wisconsin Bookwatch
"The author takes a very broad look at unnatural phenomena and includes everything from strange things falling from the sky, to strange apparitions, animals, visions, and just about anything else you can think of that has been reported over the last two hundred years. . . . Unnatural Phenomena: A Guide to the Bizarre Wonders of North America is a recommended read for anyone interested in this subject or light enough reading for the merely curious." - Midwest Book Review
"This work is recommended for libraries and individuals with interest in collecting this topic." - American Reference Books Annual
"This book is both entertaining and a bona fide public service to Fortean researchers and would-be authors. No library should be without it and . . . no serious Fortean researcher can afford to miss it." - Mysteries Magazine
