A New Biography of Charles Fort

April 10th, 2008 · No Comments

Fort fans will be intrigued to hear that a new biography of Charles Fort, by Jim Steinmeyer, is due out soon.  I’ve just read an advance copy, and urge you to keep an eye out for it.  Steinmeyer has scoured the archives, and come up with much fresh material; Fort’s delightful letters alone are worth the trip. 

Fort’s reputation has always been a many checkered thing; I’m curious how this affectionate and scholarly account will be received.

(Charles Fort: The Man Who Invented the Supernatural, by Jim Steinmeyer, will be published in May 2008 by Tarcher/Penguin.)
