"FATE magazine is fascinating." -Steven King  

The world is not what we think it is.  

The individuals whose experiences you are about to hear know that only too well, since nothing in their lives had prepared them for their encounters with things that are not supposed to happen - but did! Events like these remain hidden because those they happen to are afraid to speak out of a natural reluctance to have their sincerity or sanity questioned. Societies define their own realities and those who challenge them do so at their own peril. The moral seems to be that where these kinds of events are concerned, ignorance is the best policy.  

Ignorance, of course, will not stop people from having strange, inexplicable experiences. Mysterious stuff will continue to fall out of the sky. People will continue to have bizarre UFO encounters. Little men, monsters, talking mongooses and invisible presences won't stop their determined trespassing into our reality.  

While most of the world turns a deaf ear to these dimensions of experience, FATE has been listening. And a great number of people have shared their stories with FATE.  

You are about to hear the strangest of them, the reports that represent the greatest challenge to science, reason, and understanding. What you will find here, in The World's Strangest True Stories, is nothing less than a full, unobstructed view of these other realities, tantalizing glimpses of things that don't belong here, of worlds not our own....

Rubbish book, dreadfully narrated

Terrible book with dreadful narration. You could not tell where one story ended and the next began.

Don't Think I Can Finish It

The stories are old and not very good. The narrator and sound quality are poor as well.
The narrator doesn't pause between the short stories making it hard most of the time to tell where one story stops and the next story starts. The sound is a little tinny. Overall not very professional sounding.

extremely bad narration

this is an example of how great stories and a pretty good book can be ruined by very poor narration. this book is unlistenable due to the robotic monotone narrator who sings unable to reflect any emotion or punctuation in his statements. I would suggest this book recorded again with a different narrator

Narration plays a big role

The stories were very interesting and well written although a professional narrator would have really helped this book. Young person narrating and mis pronouncing words all over the in the book.

FASCINATING AND CREEPTASTIC, LOVED IT!

I LOVE this kind of stuff, and ate it up like a good Philly pizza. It's full of some really great stories, many of which will shock you and creep you out, it's fascinating! I've never read FATE magazine, but I'm sure interested now! Loved the stories and the narration, I could listen to this stuff all day. I'd definitely recommend this one! :)
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

thesaurus definitely held interesting phenomena

this collection of stories was definitely interesting. The narrator did an excellent job of reading the article. Some of the articles I found incredulous. Some definitely grabbed my attention and left me wondering, and some even instilled a tiny bit of fear with their elements of the unknown

What a good book for someone new to the paranormal titles.

Although the narrator is sometimes boaring and hard to listen to its worth sticking it out to listen. Good mix of stories

The truth behind it

Most of these accounts can be attributed to Demons and the games they play with human souls.
