20 Big Cats Still Roam Britain (cover story)
It's time to take stock of the nation's out-of-place big cats, those enigmatic felids that turn up from Suffolk to South Wales. Rounding-up reports of mutilated livestock, lynxes on the loose, mystery panthers and the obligatory blurry photographs, Paul Sieveking provides the essential guide to five years' worth of sightings.

30 Dagg's Demon
Paul Cropper and Tony Healy revisit a classic Canadian haunting - the Shawville Spook of 1889. The talking entity turned the Dagg family's lives upside down and the episode caused controversy, but this remains one of the best documented poltergeist cases ever recorded.

38 The West Ham Disappearances
Jan Bondeson tells the story of one of the most shocking crimes of Victorian Britain and shows that the brutal 1890 murder of a young girl in West Ham was in fact the culmination of a string of mysterious unsolved vanishings in the area.

44 The House of Eternal Return
Paul Ross visits Santa Fe's latest arts attraction, a surreal funhouse that fuses art and technology to create a multi-dimensional interactive narrative of high strangeness... and all in an abandoned bowling alley owned by George RR Martin...
