The Almanac of the Infamous, the Incredible, and the Ignored (Weiser Books, October 2009) by Juanita Rose Violini is a fact-collector's dream directory of history's mysteries and unexplained events -- rich with original illustrations throughout.
An outstanding trivia and reference book for any lover of unusual lore, each date has one or more historical events, a quote, an illustration, and a "secret power."
Topics include the Crystal Skull, UFO encounters, and other enigmas of nature, uncanny experiments in science, coincidences, the unsolved, and the downright peculiar.
In Almanac of the Infamous, the Incredible, and the Ignored, readers will find 365 days of outlandish events, mind-boggling mysteries, and stranger-than-ﬁction stories meticulously researched and delightfully illustrated.
PRAISE FOR THE ALMANAC
"From the Crystal Skull to Peking Man, this is the only believable history of the world I have ever encountered."
"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

--Colin Wilson, author of The Outsider
"The Almanac makes a charming and often enlightening read. Enjoy."
