Fact v fiction?
So Frost seems to be loosely weaving factual events into an original narrative/connection. The more I read the Secret History the more I am compelled to investigate some of the events and claims therein. I am surprised at just how many references are entirely true events.
I live a bit north of Seattle. I'm starting to get it into my head to travel down to Tacoma and sniff out the microfiche for the old Tacoma Tribune (from memory here, but I'll double check the title of the periodicals) and continue parsing the fact from the Frostian intertwining.
Helluva show. God damn.
I am halfway through the book, and finding the same thing. I actually host a podcast that covers strange topics like UFOs, giants, etc. and I have been blown away by the number of those topics that are popping up in Secret History. Thus far, each one that I look into from the book pans out as mostly fact. For a person fascinated with TP and with the weird around us, it's kind of a dream come true 🙂 I would LOVE to know what you find in the Tacoma microfiche. I live in Missoula, which is referenced quite a bit as well, and I am starting to dig into some of the topics.
