Many witnesses have experienced - and photographed - startling phenomena which defy explanation. In this enthralling book journalist John Pinkney investigates the most mysterious of these cases: the politicians son found dead near a UFO circle in a Queensland paddock...The gold prospector permanently blinded by a circular crafts dazzling lights...The strange force that stripped orchards of fruit overnight. The murderous ghost that created havoc in Melbournes vast Princess Theatre...Floating heads photographed in a rural graveyard. The eerie chain of coincidence that forceda Sydney couple to meet and marry...The boy who foreglimpsed the Melbourne Cup winners name - in mirror-writing. The unidentified craft which, between 1934 and 1978, plagued Australias Bass Strait - as three planes, their pilots and passengers, vanished without trace. The superman comic book, published 1939, which unwittingly predicted the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, 24 years later. This unique book offers one of the broadest surveys of paranormal events ever published. Presented in John Pinkneys trademark open-minded style, these analytical reports make riveting reading.

Bestselling author and journalist JOHN PINKNEY has devoted most of his career to studying the paranormal at first-hand. This unique book - in which he presents his most fascinating cases - is the culmination of a lifetime's study of UFOs, hauntings, coincidences, futuredreams, near-death experiences, and more. The rigorously-authenticated chronicles include:
* UFOs over Australia's Bass Strait. Five aircraft, their pilots, crews and passengers, vanish without trace.
* A hooded ghost haunts a film set. George Miller, maker of the Mad Max movies is baffled by a transparent monk-like figure which appears in a still shot taken in Melbourne's General Cemetery. The picture, seen around the world, has never been explained.
* People who glimpsed the future - including young TV racecaller Dan Mielicki, who accurately dreamed the three winners of the Caulfield Cup, and advised viewers to back them, hours before the race was run.
* An uncanny snapshot of the glowing 'ghost,'blamed for breaking a hotel manager's leg in three places.
* Stunningly accurate predictions in print. A thriller-writer unknowingly foretells the kidnapping and subsequent career of heiress Patti Hearst...A Superman comicbook, published in 1939, unwittingly forecasts the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, 24 years later...Author Jonathan Swift, writing Gulliver's Travels in 1726, describes in detail the orbits of the Martian moons - bodies invisible to the era's primitive telescopes. And much more.
A Paranormal File also contains authentic photographs of UFOs and the uncanny canefield carvings they allegedly have left behind - along with stark snapshots of ghostly entities. Written in an open-minded style, these reports make riveting reading.
