When I was younger, I was (and still am) a fan of horror films and fiction. One reoccurring theme that periodically arose while reading and watching the horror genre was the notion that somewhere was a powerful and macabre book of demonic spells called the Necronomicon.
Not until adulthood did I learn of its fictional basis. In 1924 the renown writer, H.P. Lovecraft wrote a short story called The Hound, in which the Necronomicon was first mentioned. It became a recurring theme in some of Lovecraft’s subsequent novels thereafter. Countless horror writers and filmmakers have capitalized and expanded on the thought of a book that could unleash unspeakable horrors. Continue reading

Annie Jacobsen is no stranger to controversy, and she certainly does not part company with it in her upcoming book Phenomena: The Secret History of the U.S. Government’s Investigations into Extrasensory Perception and Psychokinesis (to be released on Mar 28, 2017). Lifting the veil of government conspiracies and secret programs that powers that be would rather be left unnoticed is a niche that Jacobsen has embraced with great success. So much so, the yet-to-be released Phenomena, has already been picked up by Blumhouse and Amblin for a drama based on the book to be made into a television series. While this newest book deals with the secret experiments, programs and all-around interest of the United States government when it comes to extra-sensory phenomena, we revisit another title Jacobsen penned that set the world ablaze in 2011 with new allegations concerning America’s most famous secret base: Area 51.
