Otherworldly Words: Fortean

Not everybody gets a word named after him, not to mention an entire society! Charles Fort is just one of those individuals.

Fortean, meaning “pertaining to extraordinary and strange phenomenon and happenings” is named after this expert in the paranormal. He research and cataloged phenomenon from UFOs to spontaneous human combustion to poltergeist. His tomes include The Book of the Damned (1917). Original members of the Fortean Society included luminaries such critic H.L. Mencken, author Theodore Dreiser, and poet Oliver Wendell Holmes.

Earlier this month, I took a look at January and mausoleum.
