Think the Weekly World News if every word was true.


Bizarrism Vol 2 collects further tales of high strangeness around the world. The cast includes an eccentric baroness, a murderous comic book artist, an obsessed ichthyologist, a celebrity stigmatic, a cannibalistic writer, a senile surgeon and a woman who tried to make atheism into a religion.

Along the way, a light is shone on various religious cults, mysterious deaths are pondered, conspiracy theories probed and the fate of Napoleon’s penis tracked. It’s a lively, meticulously researched collection of tales that will amuse, appal and intrigue, and leave you marvelling at the infinite strangeness of human beings.


Mikul brings these stories to life in meticulously researched accounts that will amuse, appal and intrigue, and leave you marvelling at the infinite strangeness of human beings.

Reviews

"E-gads, what a book! Bizarrism is one of those stranger-than-fiction gems that's close to impossible to put down."
The Spectator [Bizarrism original edition]


“A fantastic reminder of the variety of human behaviour.”
Fortean Times [on Chris Mikul's The Eccentropedia]


“What could have been a coffee-table project is much moreso because of its thought-provoking affirmation of all that is odd in the realm of human behaviour.”
International Times [on Chris Mikul's The Eccentropedia]
