The London home of Charles Fort, documenter of the weird!

Location: 39A Marchmont Street, London

Description: Charles Hoy Fort (1874-1932) was an American writer and researcher into anomalous phenomena, known for his tongue-in-cheek sense of humour, and his studies into strange events. Without him, there would be X-Files, or no popular accounts stories of rains of fish or frogs. He coined the term 'teleport.

The magazine Fortean Times was named after Charles Fort and he wrote several books during his lifetime.

This is where he lived (with wife Anna) between 1921 and 1928, and where he wrote his book New Lands.
