From the Ridiculous to the Sublime
from pre-history to recent times there have been many strange or unusual events which, despite being largely lost to public memory or watered-down into legend, folklore or myth, still retain the factual integrity and substance that can both fascinate and excite one’s curiosity. This is a collection of stories of such events – each story seemingly unrelated other than being entirely true, and that is why, as the saying goes, they are often stranger than fiction. The stories are about life’s oddities, passions, hate, death and survival, violence and heroism and much more, in fact, all manner of different recollections that have little else in common other than they are all, in their own right, interesting and, in some cases, quite remarkable.
