Do wildmen roam the mountains of China? Does a puma stalk the leafy lanes of Surrey? Did two girls from Yorkshire really photograph fairies at play? What can explain the extraordinary reports of people who suddenly catch fire and are consumed by flames while their surroundings - even in some cases their clothing - remain virtually untouched? Did Chinese explorers reach the coast of California centuries before Columbus? Does a vast octopus, strong enough to tow a trawler, lurk on the seabed off Bermuda? Did four British holidaymakers spend a night in a phantom hotel in France? 

These are just a few of the mysteries which Arthur C. Clarke has added to his famous files since his two acclaimed television series, Mysterious World and World of Strange Powers,  and their accompanying best-selling books, caught the imagination of audiences throughout the world. 

In this book, Clarke analyzes these fresh mysteries, presented by John Fairley and Simon Welfare, with characteristic authority and wit, without ever losing the sense of the marvellous that has led him to write: "The Universe is such a strange and wonderful place that reality will always outrun the wildest imagination; there will always be things unknown, and perhaps unknowable."
