KIRKUS REVIEW

Here is a symposium of bafflers--some are familiar, such as the Mary Celeste case; some have current interest as his Gadgets in the Sky, embracing of course, the flying saucers of today. Mysteries of natural history such as sea serpents are here too, with dissertations on psychic phenomena -the mysterious footprints throughout Devon, the moving coffins in Barbados. Some deal with strange personalities such as the Kasper Hauser case. Wonderful material here; but in some cases Eric Russell has deadened the interest by underplaying the melodrama.
