In the Midst of Weird History

by Emily Z

Pssst! Hey there, fine and goodly readers–just checking in with you at the midpoint of our journey through time and also the month of October.

It’s hard to believe we’re already halfway through the Weird History edition of our Beyond Bestsellers series and I hope it’s been suitably, satisfyingly strange so far.

I thought I’d offer up some of the other book lists made especially for this theme, in case you didn’t discover them using the very silly quiz from the the post at the beginning of the month.

There’s the Weird History of Hoaxes and Shams:

Women in Weird History:

Weird History and Bad Medicine:

The Weird History of Food and Drink:

Weird War II:

These are only handfuls of the strangeness to be found in human history. If you’ve any found books that exemplify “weird history” for you or just learned something new about something old, let me know in the comments.
