Magonia (Journal)

Quarterly journal concerned with anomalies, such as visions, portents, prodigies, and UFOs. The name "Magonia" was given in medieval France to a mysterious land beyond the sky, the origin of all kinds of signs and wonders but inextricably bound up with the destinies of human beings. Inhabitants of Magonia traveled in aerial ships and were believed to destroy crops and kidnap human beings. The emperor Charlemagne issued edicts to prohibit the Magonians from troubling the air and provoking storms.

Issues of Magonia have covered such subjects as glossolalia, ouija boards, pagan occultism, coincidences, Spiricom, earth lights, psychic research, Bigfoot, and other Fortean topics. Address: John Rimmer, John Dee Cottage, 5 James Terrace, Mortlake Churchyard, London, SW14 8HB England. Website: http://www.magonia.demon.co.uk/.
