John in Fortean Times #230

This month's Fortean Times (#230) contains a two page article by yours truly on the subject of the annual celebration held in Market Weighton, Yorkshire known as "Giant Bradley Day". I'm very, very, very happy to be in FT again (my first ever piece of published writing was in #187, in 2004) as it's one of my favourite mags and, in fact, the only magazine I've ever subscribed to in my life. Of course, there are lots of other marvelous articles in there, such as...

In this issue we follow an explorer into the Siberian taiga as he seeks to uncover the truth behind local tales of olguis, or 'upturned cauldrons', dangerous to all living things, and round-up some other examples of Siberian weirdness.

Also this month we learn that the Templars were not guilty of heresy, ask whether writing about your own crime might be a bit of a give away, wonder how you can not notice being shot in the head, mourn the death of an intelligent parrot, and applaud Daisy the dachshund's discovery of a mammoth bone at the seaside.

Well worth the price of admission surely?
