Big Book of Hoaxes SC

BIG BOOK OF HOAXES SC - (Carl Sifakis/Various) Presenting short comics stories about the world's most interesting fakers, phonies, and hoaxsters, The Big Book of Hoaxes compiles some of history's greatest lies and false stories. Among them: Orson Welles' famous War of the Worlds hoax - where people all over the country were led by a bogus radio news broadcast to believe that Martians had landed in New Jersey; and Mary Toft, who in 1726 claimed to have been sexually assaulted by a six-foot tall giant rabbit. Six months later she gave birth to live rabbits in front of doctors and other witnesses. (You'll have to read the book to find out how she managed that trick.) Written by Carl Sifakis (author of Hoaxes and Scams ), and others, this Big Book includes the work of artists Rick Geary, Randy DuBurke, Ralph Reese, Roger Langridge, and Hunt Emerson. 192 pp. MR.
