    1. A Christmas present, Another Weird Year has been my bathroom reading for the past month or so. This book is basically a collection of weird news stories from around the world (tho UK stories seem to be most prevalent) grouped by category. While the individual stories don't contain cites, Davies says he does fact-check, and gives some examples of urban legends in the postlogue. This book is nothing special in the weird news realm - the stories are plainly told, with no wry commentary or anything [...]

    2. A lot of the stories in this are funny, some are out right creepy. I was interested by many of the stories and thought that the politically correct town names were favorites. This is definitely a book to have in the bathroom or similar for short spells of reading. Reading whole chapters at one sitting gets a little dull.
