“Fringe-Ology brings a poet’s eye to the frayed edges between the known and unknown, belief and skepticism. . . . A dive into the paranormal even a hardcore skeptic like myself can enjoy.” —Mat Johnson, author of PymTake a strange and unsettling trip into the heart of the paranormal universe as journalist Steve Volk tries to answer some of the most fundamental questions at the heart of human existence. Fringe-ology will appeal to anyone curious but cautious about reports of paranormal experiences, psychic phenomena, and other unexplainable events—anyone who has ever wondered about the existence an afterlife, intelligent life on other planets, or the limits of extrasensory perception. For fans of Fringe, Mythbusters, Medium, Heroes, Nova, and Lost, Volk’s scintillating journey into mystery illuminates the furthest boundaries of possibility and wonder.
