Description
A science fiction writer and publisher who has earned two Hugo Awards, the World Fantasy Award, the Locus Award, and the Chesley Award, John Grant is also a popular science writer, and here conducts a fascinating trawl through the annals of erroneous scientific ideas. Alchemy, flat-earth and hollow-earth theories, lost worlds, and aliens among us all seemed plausible once, at least to some, while the earth moved from the center of the universe to become a smallish planet orbiting an average star. Grant introduces us to ancient astronauts and hidden races, exotic creatures like the yeti, bizarre early thoughts about evolution, UFO crazes, and the music of the spheres.

"John Grant is the living heir of Martin Gardner."óGregory Frost
