MYSTERIOUS PLACES

An entry in The Unexplained series (see Hepplewhite, below), this purports to lay out the facts concerning five locations much beloved by devotees of the paranormal: Tut's tomb, Australia's Hanging Rock, Native American mounds, Easter Island, and Stonehenge. Sporting a garish, excessive layout, reminiscent of old SF comic books, and presenting hearsay and half-truths as science and history, the volume opens with an introduction that sets the intellectual tone: ""All over the world, baffling events have unfolded in places that are haunted by spirits and powers far beyond our understanding."" Though readers are to decide for themselves what is true and what is not, many of them will possess neither the judgment nor the background to make such decisions.
