This site, which is curated by Salt Lake City web designer Alan Bellows, is a welcome find for those curious about obscure but true stories. The contents are free, the graphics are beautiful, and the writing is, indeed, interesting. For example, Article #361, "The Derelict," focuses its narrative on the sudden death of a luxury cruise ship captain on September 7, 1934. Out at sea with storms approaching from both the north and the south, there may or may not be a communist revolutionary aboard waiting to set the boat on fire. In addition to the riveting narrative and the period photographs, Bellows provides links to more information and related articles. Other entries cover a range of topics, from the travels of a French family in the 18th century to a history of potatoes. Readers can enjoy each story in written form on the website, as a podcast episode, or as as an e-book for offline reading.
