Charles Fort also wrote "The Book of the Damned." This was his first book. Not only was Fort a writer, but he studied anomalous phenomena as well. In "Science Fiction Writers," E. F. Bleiler describes Charles Fort as someone who, "spent his life collecting and collating thousands of accounts of events and phenomena apparently inexplicable by orthodox science."
