    The Siren's Call: What really happened to the Knights Templar?

  • The Siren's Call: Bigfoot and secret societies

    The Siren's Call: Bigfoot and secret societies
    Remember Robert Bly's bestselling 1990 book "Iron John: A Book About Men"? It was the manifesto for a movement -- a call for men to get back in touch with their primal selves. Go out in the woods, strip off your shirt, bang on a drum and howl at the moon....
  • 'The Lost Symbol'

    'The Lost Symbol'
    The wait is over. "The Lost Symbol," the follow-up to Dan Brown's 2003 mega-seller, "The Da Vinci Code," is here -- and you don't have to be a Freemason to enjoy it (although it wouldn't hurt). Like "Angels and Demons," published in 2000, and "The Da...

    The Siren's Call: An epic poet as Mary Shelley's co-author
    How did Mary Shelley come up with the idea for "Frankenstein"? Did that spooky storytelling contest at the Villa Diodati in 1816 -- you know, the one with Byron, John Polidori and Mary's husband Percy -- send her imagination into high gear? Was it all the...

  • Weekend Deals at Police Sale

    Every year, dozens of valuable items recovered by police and left unclaimed, go on sale. The result will be some unheard of deals. San Diego police will once again hold an auction this Saturday at the Scottish Rite Event Center with hundreds expected to...
  • Shadowy path may lead to treasure

    Shadowy path may lead to treasure
    Deep in the woods near Brushy Creek stands an old beech tree, its smooth bark etched with dozens of carvings, including biblical references, a heart and a legless horse. Bob Brewer was 10 when his great-uncle, W.D. "Grandpa" Ashcraft, pointed it out on a...
  • The L.A. Times book review: Dan Brown's 'The Lost Symbol'

     
    The book won't hit shelves until Tuesday and hasn't been distributed to reviewers; nevertheless, our Nick Owchar has been among the few to have seen and read "The Lost Symbol," the follow-up to Dan Brown's mega-bestseller, "The Da Vinci Code."......
  • 'Comedy Is Dead' at the Masonic Lodge tonight

     
    The story goes that Duncan Trussell, a delightfully deranged L.A. comedian, proclaimed comedy to be dead after watching an episode of 'Last Comic Standing.' Doing his best to resurrect intelligent wit, he started a monthly evening of stand-up for those...
  • Found on EBay – 1907 Shriners Convention

     
    The 1907 Shriners convention in Los Angeles inspired all sorts of commemorative trinkets. Most of the items were pins, badges, glassware and ceramics, which frequently turn up on EBay. Here’s something I’ve never seen before, a spoon that was...
  • The Books bring their library of eccentricity to Hollywood Forever tonight

     
    Just another example of the amazing concerts that we Angelenos are privy to-- the Books at Hollywood Forever. Baffling, brilliant and impossible to pigeon hole, the Books create experimental, kaleidoscopic music that incorporates elements of folk and...
