Short Synopsis
Two of today's maverick authors on anomalous experience present a perception-altering and intellectually thrilling analysis of why the paranormal is real, but radically different from what is conventionallyunderstood.

Full Synopsis
Whitley Strieber and Jeffrey J. Kripal team up on this unprecedented and intellectually vibrant new framing of inexplicable events and experiences.

Rather than merely document the anomalous, these authors—one the man who popularized alien abduction and the other a renowned scholar—deliver a fast-paced and exhilarating study of why the supernatural is neither fantasy nor fiction but a vital and authentic aspect of life.

Their suggestion? That all kinds of "impossible" things, from extra-dimensional beings to bilocation to bumps in the night, are not impossible at all: rather, they are a part of our natural world. But this natural world is immeasurably more weird, more wonderful, and probably more populated than we have so far imagined with our current categories and cultures, which are what really make these things seem "impossible."

The Super Natural considers that the natural world is actually a "super natural world"—and all we have to do to see this is to change the lenses through which we are looking at it and the languages through which we are presently limiting it. In short: The extraordinary exists if we know how to look at and think about it.

“A cohesive reframing of the ‘pantheon of the unknown’ . . . A thought-provoking, intelligent reconceptualization of supernatural events.” ---Kirkus

"No matter your beliefs, Strieber's writing has impact." ---Library Journal

"This is a brilliant, provocative, and gripping new inquiry into the mysteries of time, space, and the human — and not so human — mind. Absolutely captivating; one could even say I was abducted." ---Gary Lachman, author of The Secret Teachers of the Western World
