Ulrich Magin: A Correction


I must set straight an error which has crept into Strange #19. In his review of the excellent volumes of Fortean Studies, Douglas Chapman has said (on p. 40) that the fascist crap of Hermann Wirth "influenced...Paul Devereux." As he is referring to my piece on Nazi archeology I should stress that in none of his works Paul Devereux has ever quoted Wirth nor was he influenced by him. Also, I do not say this in my Fortean Studies piece on Wirth. It is sad and true that many alternative archeologists have quoted Wirth's confused nonsense as evidence for some far-out ideas, but Paul Devereux is not among them.
