Well, I saw this book a while back on Boing Boing, and anything that sounds remotely like it belongs on the Art Bell show (mysterious giant black orb, strange disappearances) is a winner in my book. Basically a town in Massachusetts gets visited by the aforementioned orb in 1935. Later, the only five witnesses to the event disappear. And the puzzle of what happened only begins when you finish the book and go, “Um…what?”

You go to creator Bob Staake’s website and there’s enough backstory here to make the folks at Haxan Films go “Well…shit.” Strange phenomena + puzzle/riddle book = we are very intrigued. It’s available from Commonwealth Editions.
