What is "Fortean?" Charles H. Fort was a writer in 1920-1930 who was skeptical of scientists who ignored or dismissed certain "anomaly" reports out of hand. Fort compiled these reports in several books and thus founded the field of Amateur Anomalistics, otherwise known as "investigating the unexplained." The classic "Fortean" phenomenon is a hail of small live fishes which fall during a rainstorm. Human combustion, sightings of impossible animals, inexplicable crimes, these are all "Fortean" phenomena. See: About Fort
