About

Suspend your disbelief for a moment while we tell you a tale.

All legends started with a simple truth, and every myth, no matter how fantastical, began with a real world event.

There was a time, however, not so very long ago, when legend and reality merged.

Within the yellowed pages of history, we often see accounts of just such a blending of science and superstitions.

This project is an attempt to shine a light upon those days of yesterday, when legends were as real as the stars in the evening skies.

Over the last several years, we have gathered together a vast collection of some of the most extraordinary accounts to have ever appeared in the historical archives of the world's various news agencies.

It is our intent to take the various newspaper items and attempt to publish them in a book format for a historical research project that we call 'The Chronologies'.

We have gathered more than 10,000 items describing hundreds of strange events and phenomenon, and believe that we have gathered enough materials to produce 5 different 'Chronologies' volumes, each on a unique and remarkable topic.

This first book which we are trying to create and publish is based entirely upon strange human remains that have allegedly been unearthed over the last two hundred years. The notes for this brief collection can be viewed at the following blog address:

Risks and challenges

If you examined the blogsite that we have created (which has served as a small portion of our notes), you are aware that the 'research' aspect of the project is completed. This was, by far, the most time consuming part of the entire project, but we believe that enough unique archived materials have been collected to produce a variety of manuscripts based upon a variety of topics.
From the research and notes which we have gathered, we have produced a manuscript that is complete (with the exception of graphics), and have been speaking with a number of publishers in North America in regards to printing a 'first edition' of the "C: BoG". If funding proves successful, this first printing would occur (including graphics and images)before Autumn, 2014, with shipping to begin immediately afterwards.
Essentially, if we can achieve our funding object, there appears to be minimal to zero risk, as there is already a preliminary deal in place to print the manuscript into a book format.
(If, by your generosity and belief in this project, we surpass our funding objectives, any additional funds will be used to enhance the 'quality' of the book's construction & design (ie; paper type, cover design, etc.), as well as the next volume in the Chronologies).

We genuinely hope to have the opportunity to thank each person who has faith in this unique product which we are trying to produce, and we would like to begin displaying our gratitude for your support by rewarding you with the first volume in a potential series of extraordinary volumes.
