One of my favorite memories from elementary school was the Scholastic Books flyer. These seemed to come around randomly, almost magically. This was before gigantic booksellers and the internet, and if you were a kid who read, this was the shit you waited for. Four to eight pages of books suitable for kids 12 and younger, all reasonably priced with free shipping to your school. Fiction, non-fiction, puzzles and reference books. You name it, they seemed to have it. I specifically remember a 96-page book on sharks that I used as a reference to write reports (on sharks) well into college.

This was back before cable TV, when there were not dozens of TV shows about ghosts, aliens, or other assorted paranormal mysteries available at your finger tips. These topics were not popular and definitely weren’t mainstream like they are today. But there, amongst the Choose Your Own Adventure books, were tomes on Secret Knowledge, UFO sightings, Alien Abductions, Ghostly Hauntings, Mysteries of the Mayans, the Loch Ness Monster and the Bermuda Triangle. Books that opened doorways to new worlds, other dimensions. Many of these books were written by a man named Brad Steiger.

Brad Steiger has 170 books to his name. Most of which inhabit the spiritual or paranormal world in one form or another. Steiger is the undisputed Godfather of the paranormal fact genre. He’s collaborated on books with other bigwigs of that world, like Whitley Strieber and Art Bell. You’ve seen him interviewed on TV shows and heard him on Coast to Coast.
