We’re so spoiled nowadays when it comes to finding information on weird, supernatural and creepy stuff. You can Wikipedia the Amityville Horror, you can watch documentaries about ancient aliens on demand, and there’s a podcast for everything from ghost hunting to past life regression.
But it wasn’t always that way. Back in the ’80s, we watched our horror movies on VHS and Time Life Books told us about the Mysteries of the Unknown.
Thirty-three volumes of paranormal awesomeness. Sadly, I never owned these books when I was a kid–but I had a friend who did, and I remember flipping through them and marveling at how packed they were with thins I’d never seen or heard of before.
I was talking about this series with someone a few weeks ago, and I found myself on eBay, looking for any used volumes. I found a set of twelve for about $25, and they are even better than I remembered them being. I’m planning on collecting them all.
If you’re a horror fan or interested in the paranormal at all, I cannot recommend this series highly enough.
