    I just finished updating my book list for my group. It is sent automatically to new members. Many, many books have been added to the list and it's been broken down into groups. I don't know where to put it on this site, so I'll just say, if anyone wants a copy, I'll email it to you. It's a 35k Word document. This list includes booklets also.

    Oh great, now I'll have an even better idea where to spend money I don't have... :p

    But in all seriousness, I love the book list. The books I can't find may drive me crazy (I've got about half of them, or did, now I've got more work to do), but I've yet to read a book on the list that wasn't quality...

    Well, except maybe "The Pines" by Robert Dunbar, but that was great for different reasons :D

    I was just on ABEbooks.com and found 2 copies of Witmer Stone-one was almost $500 and another almost $600. One of the Sinton books I picked up for $35 is $95.
    I should start selling books....anyone want my second Witmer copy? Kidding...my books are worth more than me, lol!

    Save that Witmer Stone book, at the rate it's going up, that's your whole retirement fund right there! :)

    You know, I spent $120 on the second edition and later got the first edition for $35!
    Books are one thing I love to splurge on.
    Witmer is wonderful-he mixes science and poetry in such a wonderful way. His stories about the cranberry plant and the curly grass fern are so colorful. He gives the plant a poetic cultural background.

    Barry,
    I mentioned this on your group as well--one important book you forgot was

    Ongs Hat: The Beginning.

    It's not a fantasy or sci fi. It's about the governmental conspiracy that has covered up the
    reality of not only Montauk but Ongs Hat. See, what ya'll don't know, is that Ongs Hat is a vortex into
    an alternate interdimensional reality, a critical juncture in time
    and space, and the nexus of a vast, uncountable quanta of
    probability matrices joining at the confluence of those temporal
    streams called past, present and future.

    There are papers that prove all of this--The Incunabla Documents,
    which mysteriously disappear when they are posted online.There have
    been murders in attempt to cover up this conspiracy--the government
    will not let the knowledge escape that Ongs Hat is a vortex in
    synchronicity that exceeds Montauk's grids. For, "while Montauk's
    Phoenix Project employed an assortment of deranged dorks (Aryanist,
    pedophile, woman-hating, military/intelligence operatives along with
    their totally uncool ET allies), the Ong's Hat posse embraced a
    colorful array of maverick misfits...This rag-tag group built
    the "Egg" - a glistening Faberge-like device that enabled trans-
    dimensional travel into unpopulated mirror worlds" Joseph Matheny
    explores and divulges information concerning the "Ong's Hat" Ashram
    in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey. Legend has it that this Ashram
    was made up of renegade physicists who had perfected a method of
    dimensional travel. According to some threads of the legend, this
    Ashram was routed by unidentified military forces sometime in the
    seventies... .

    I hope all of you understand the importance of Ong's Hat now.

    Crikey. ;)

    Is this a new book? Didn't we discuss before about a high school project about Ong's Hat? It seems to me that it had something to do with making up stories about the place.

    It's not a new book, no. Montauk conspiracy theories have been around for a while, it's a spin off.
    This guy is an adult. I do remember something about a high school project, that was a website if I remember correctly. It's probably the website I referenced. But there is a published book about all of the government conspiracy surrounding Ongs Hat. :rolleyes: I asked my sister about it--her husband was into the Montauk stuff for a while--and he is familiar with it. The book is available through ABE books.

    I had found a web site some time ago that was about Ong's Hat. The auther called it Aglaura and described it as having mall, library,etc., etc. Strange stuff.

    I remember it! Interestingly, it's not there anymore.
    It wasn't at all the same stuff if I remember correctly (which I may not!) but strange nonetheless.

    Maybe the website has been transported into an alternate reality mirror world.

    CAN YOU NOT SEE!? THE GOVERNMENT HAS TAKEN THE WEBSITE DOWN THAT WE MAY NOT KNOW THE TRUTH!!!

    Actually, a friend of mine tried to explain the whole Ong's Hat dimensional thing to me years ago, it just confused me. He's a little strange...

    I think that the author of the Ongs Hat "egg" theory later said that it was just fiction.

    It sure sounds like fiction to me! But there are whackos that believe in Montauk---I know some.

    I did an internet search for Ong's Hat, among other things, after reading John McPhee's book for about the hundreth time. Mixed in with the general knowledge and hostorical sites was one that detailed the incunabla papers and the whole time space dimensional travel deal, interesting reading anyway. Sitting at work bores outta me skull one day I tried to find it again, it is gone, no trace of it, weird. i would like to find Ong's Hat though, i recently picked up the first volume of Forgotten Towns of Southern Jersey and was reminded of it. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    You need my Pine Barrens book list. There are all kinds of things you can find in the books about the Pines. There are more than you would think.
