Nicholas Belardes has been called a “bizarre fact hunter” and “master of the last thing you need to know.” An academic in anomaly, Belardes knows more secret lore than all the National Treasure movies combined, and digs up mind-boggling scientific oddities that would drive Darwin mad. Pore over the puzzle of Alice in Wonderland syndrome, explore the geographic mysteries of Hell Town and the hungry denizens of the Cannibal Islands, and uncover the prophecies of the mysterious Mothman. A People’s History of the Peculiar will satisfy your curiosity better than any Internet binge, and guarantees at least a few workable pickup lines at a cocktail party. Teeming with astounding trivia, A People’s History of the Peculiar is a must-have for anyone hungry for more knowledge.
