Disinfonauts may be interested to know that the Kindle edition of journalist Steve Volk’s book Fringe-ology is currently on sale for a paltry $1.99. Fringe-ology documents Volk’s exploration of various “fringe” topics: psi, UFOs and near-death experiences among them. Look for Volk on the DisinfoCast next week! Via Volk:
Fringe-ology is my attempt to reconcile a mysterious ghost story from my childhood with my lifelong, down to earth occupation as a journalist. My solution was to do journalism—to investigate that family ghost story, and other paranormal topics, in the high style of narrative nonfiction. What I found is a great tale that’s been relegated to the fringe of our discourse for too long—a story about all of us, a story filled with ghosts, UFOs, maverick scientists, psychics, spoon-benders and the people who love and hate them. More importantly, I found common ground we can all share—a place for skeptics and believers, spiritualists and scientists, to stand together—not at the fringes, but at the heart of what it means to be human.
