American history is more than just what you read in your high school textbooks.
There’s a wild and weird side to America’s past, filled with strange creatures, bizarre happenings, and fantastical figures. Researcher and writer Robert Damon Schneck has spent more than a decade devoted to sleuthing out these forgotten weird, grotesque, and mysterious gems of American history, like:
• The man who preached good health through blood-drinking.
• The California family driven insane by Ouija board séances, and the national panic that they ignited
• The West Virginia town named after its resident poltergeist, who was obsessed with cutting everything into crescent shapes.
• The Antichrist-obsessed cult leader whose disciples became brutal murderers, all in the name of saving her (and the world).
You’ll also learn about homemade guillotines, magical ape-men on Mt. St. Helens, the psychic who smuggled a crystal ball into the White House, and the origins of those baffling modern bogeys, evil clowns driving vans.
These historically researched, scrupulously verified, and always shockingly true tales in this collection come from an America that lies beyond the skyscrapers, cornfields, and suburban strip malls where we make our homes—a place where monsters guard buried treasures, schoolgirls develop stigmata, and we never run out of strange things.
The Bye Bye Man: And Other Strange-but-True Tales
Robert Damon Schneck
The True Story behind the Terrifying Movie
Don’t think of his name…
In 1990, three college students spent a long Wisconsin winter experimenting with a Ouija board; it turned out to be the deadliest mistake of their lives.
The board brought them into contact with a psychic serial killer, known only as the Bye Bye Man. Learning his name makes you vulnerable, but thinking about it draws the Bye Bye Man to you.
He is a relentless traveler, moving night and day, coming ever closer until the shrill sound of a steady whistle announces his arrival. He might turn up outside your bedroom door, speaking in the voice of a trusted friend, someone who would never hurt you…
Here is the authentically terrifying, true-life story recounted by historian Robert Damon Schneck in a chapter of his classic underground collection of weird Americana, which formed the basis for the major motion picture, The Bye Bye Man.
This unsettling tale is accompanied by seven more chapters of twisted history, and includes the author’s new afterword, “Searching for The Bye Bye Man.”
