SOMETHING FOUL THIS WAY COMES
Witnesses the world over claim to see spirits, UFOs, Sasquatch, and other phenomena that are not supposed to exist. Most cannot believe their eyes, yet some of these observers have also detected evidence of a more ephemeral nature—odors abound, in particular the stench of brimstone.
In the first book of its kind, Joshua Cutchin, author of the highly praised A Trojan Feast, documents these uncommon scents and poses a startling possibility... that smell is a sense ripe for deception.
We trust our eyes and ears, but should we trust our noses?
