    Semi-relevant, but when I was a kid, I loved the Arthur C. Clarke Mysterious World book. My parents had a copy that they got from the Readers' Digest club, and I read it endlessly back then. It was a tie-in to the TV series from the early 1980s. Amazing cover, as well:



    At about the same time, I was obsessed with the PG Tips 'tea card' series Unexplained Mysteries. I was constantly trying to chivvy my parents up to drink more tea, so that they would have to buy more, so I could get the next card.

    Because of the new Borley Rectory film starring Reece Shearsmith. It was where I first read about it too - the name alone gives me the creeps today
    http://carrionfilms.co.uk/2019/07/17...-october-14th/

    “Haunted by the story for 40 years and a film subsequently 6 years in the making, ‘Borley Rectory’ was a labour of love, so there was never a chance of me handing it over to anyone who I didn’t believe would do it justice. The Nucleus release of ‘Borley Rectory’ is everything I could have hoped for and more. Not only does it feature a pristine transfer of the film, it also boasts an incredibly in-depth, highly entertaining and informative feature-length ‘making of’ covering not just the colourful production of the film, but the journey that led me there. Nucleus also allowed and encouraged me to dig deeper into both the legend and the obsessions that led to the film being made. The disc is literally groaning with extras; ghost related featurettes, in-depth interviews with Borley experts, insights from Stephen Volk, Reece Shearsmith and Jonathan Rigby, and an exclusive interview with the publishers of the children’s book that started this journey way back in 1979. Borley Rectory was the Mount Everest of hauntings. This Blu-ray is the Everest of releases.”
    – Ashley Thorpe, Director of BORLEY RECTORY

    This release of Borley Rectory has inspired Usborne Publishing to re-release their classic “The World of the Unknown: All About Ghosts” book, which was a huge influence on director Ashley Thorpe and Actor Reece Shearsmith, who has written an introduction to the new edition. The book can be pre-ordered here:

    Sadly, I stopped collecting them after a few years.

    My god, I remember that our school library had the UFO book - I read that time and again back then when we had a 'wet playtime' (which, in the UK, was at least once a week).

    I might have to get on eBay and grab myself a copy. Thank you for the reminder!

    The reissue is a surprising thin volume but looks great.
