Pursuit (Journal)

Quarterly publication of the Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained. The Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained was founded in 1966 by explorer-author Ivan T. Sanderson (1911-1973), an enthusiastic student of the research of Charles H. Fort into strange and anomalous phenomena and events. Pursuit included reports on the wide range of Fortean phenomena, i.e., bizarre events, strange anomalies, synchronicities and scientific ambiguities often ignored or explained away, such as unusual falls from the skies, mysterious disappearances and reappearances, stigmata, earthquake and tornado anomalies, invisible assassins, teleportation, UFO s, levitation, monsters, inexplicable fires and explosions. The society died soon after Sanderson's death in 1973 and with it went Pursuit.
