Science Frontiers: Some Anomalies and Curiosities of Nature

Compiled by William R. Corliss

The primary intent of this book is entertainment. Do not look for profundities! All I claim here is an edited collection of naturally occurring anomalies and curiosities that I have winnowed mainly from scientific journals and magazines published between 1976 and 1993. With this eclectic sampling I hope to demonstrate that nature is amusing, beguiling, sometimes bizarre, and, most important, liberating. "Liberating?" Yes! If there is anything profound between these covers, it is the influence of anomalies on the stability of stifling scientific paradigms. -- William R. Corliss, from the Preface

This volume is an indexed compilation of the first 86 issues of Corliss's newsletter, Science Frontiers. Science Frontiers II is also available.
