New Lands by Charles Fort.

New Lands was the second nonfiction book of the author Charles Fort, written in 1925. It deals primarily with astronomical anomalies.

Overview

Fort expands in this book on his theory about the Super-Sargasso Sea - a place where earthly things supposedly materialize in order to rain down on Earth - as well as developing an idea that there are continents above the skies of Earth. As evidence, he cites a number of anomalous phenomena, including strange "mirages" of land masses, groups of people, and animals in the skies. He also continues his attacks on scientific dogma, citing a number of mysterious stars and planets that scientists failed to account for.


Criticisms

Of all of Fort's books, New Lands is the least well-regarded. His speculations (serious or joking, he does reveal) concerning continents in the sky and the supposed top-like shape of the Earth have dated considerably.
