Death in Venice
The Secret Art History of Estonian Occultism
First, a UFO was sighted. Then another, and another, and another. They kept coming; there were abductions, messages to mankind were sent etc. All the usual stuff. There was a group of Japanese scientists working in my uncle’s neighbour’s cellar, unearthing the remains of what was supposed to be an ancient alien spaceship.
Let me tell ya – during the pre-millennial interregnum, Estonia was the most paranormally active piece of land on the face of the Earth.
