Features

34 Don't Send in the Clowns (Cover Story)
With celebrity coulrophobes in the media, evil clowns in the cinema and traumatised children striken with terror at the sight of big red noses and giant shoes, Tim Weinberg wonders just what it is about clowns that so disturbs us, while Benjamin Radford investigates the Phantom Clown panics that have gripped the USA.

42 Amazing Amazonia
In an age of shrinking habitats and ecodisaster, the animal kingdom can still yield startling discoveries. Dr Karl Shuker reports on Dutch zoologist Marc van Roosmalen's work uncovering a marvellous menagerie of mammals in Brazil's vast green heartland.

46 City of Secrets
A new book by Patrice Chaplin reveals an unexpected link between Abbe Berenger Sauniere and the Spanish city of Girona. David V Barrett met Chaplin to discuss Girona's occult connections and disturbing past.

54 UFOs and Hollywood, Pt 2: 1960-1979
