SOMETHING FOUL THIS WAY COMES
Witnesses the world over claim to see spirits, UFOs, Sasquatch, and other phenomena that are not supposed to exist. Most cannot believe their eyes, yet some of these observers have also detected evidence of a more ephemeral nature--odors abound, in particular the stench of brimstone.
In the first book of its kind, Joshua Cutchin, author of the highly praised A Trojan Feast, documents these uncommon scents and poses a startling possibility... that smell is a sense ripe for deception.
We trust our eyes and ears, but should we trust our noses?
"The Brimstone Deceit can rightly be called an instant classic because it articulates a refreshingly original approach to the paranormal and more importantly, how witnesses interpret their experiences. Joshua Cutchin carefully builds his case with fascinating, startling, and entertaining accounts from throughout history to show us that when it comes to UFOs, Bigfoot, and other High Strangeness, the nose may really know what has been knocking at our doors for millennia." - Greg Bishop, author of Project Beta "This book stinks! The Brimstone Deceit brings a fascinating new dimension to the anomalistic sensorium." - Mark Pilkington, author of Mirage Men
With this book, Joshua shows himself to be a master of taking something small, completely overlooked, and showing that it actually has a lot to tell us about these phenomena that we categorize as paranormal. First it was food, and this time around, it is all about what scents are attached to various encounters. What he finds is fascinating. There are some very interesting connections across experiences, which suggest many things depending on how you want to look at it. He explores scents reported in Ghost encounters, UFO’s, Bigfoot, as well as various other monster encounters and weird experiences. It’s often something reported just in passing, but he manages to collect a large number of accounts and distill them down to find the commonalities. It’s something entirely new in this field, and that doesn’t happen a lot. Both of his books should be mandatory reading for people exploring these mysteries, as they go into territory never before examined, and show some surprising results.
