Stranger Than Fiction

post by Michelle Griep
Stuck for a story idea? Need a pick-me-up in the middle of your plot? Sick of sitting around in your underwear watching re-runs of Gilligan's Island? Have I found a few sites for you . . .

Weird U.S.
Historical anecdotes, bizarre facts, odd news clippings, these things and more, all within the boundaries of the United States. That means not only can you read about strange stories, you can actually go and visit the places where they happened.

Weird Universe
From the 1900's to the 1990's, this site presents news stories and personal accounts of strange happenings from all around the world. But it's more than that, with items ranging from quirky old commercials to bizarre fashions.

Cracked
This is the mother lode of freakish journalism. It's kind of like watching a train wreck. Just when you think you've read the most unbelievable yet true story out there, whammo! Another is there just a click away.

Strange Magazine
A bit more on the paranormal end of the spectrum, Strange Mag gives personal accounts and documented stories of the Twilight Zone variety.
