* ShoddyKnockoffProduct: the lurid and sensationalist imitator ''Bizarre'', that focused on the sexual, violent or generally sensationalist aspects of Forteana with lots of pictures and less words. Embarrassingly, it was released by the same publisher.

* AlienFairFolk: One of Hunt Emerson's "Phenomenomix" comic strips dealt with a bunch of fairies leaving their mound to terrorise a lone traveller. A young rebellious fairy spent the strip moaning about how dull and routine the procedure had become, before in the final panel sneaking off to a secluded dungeon to work on his "fairy chariot"... a stereotypical FlyingSaucer.

Added DiffLines:

* SpookyPhotographs: This is an area that's been of interest ever since the first primitive cameras emerged in the 1840's. FT regularly covers, discusses and either debunks the phenomena, or puts a question mark against genuinely perplexing specimens. There are lots of spooky photographs in the FT archives.

Added DiffLines:

* MuseumOfTheStrangeAndUnusual: Pretty much a print version. But the magazine reports on many actual examples around the world.

Added DiffLines:

* ArkhamsRazor: while holding to the sensible point of view that OccamsRazor is generally the right approach to take in evaluating evidence, FT is keen to point out that Arkham's Razor should not be scorned and may, in some circumstances, at least be more entertaining and maybe even potentially useful.

* DesignStudentsOrgasm: they've toned it down a bit recently and hopefully listened to reader criticism. Experimenting with different styles of font and background colour is all very well and in the eyes of a keen designer, probably a lot more fulfilling than that boring unimaginative black-type-on-white-page, but what got lost in the enthusiasm was that it still has to be ''readable''. Combinations like red or yellow type on black background could make the pages horribly hard to read. FT went trough a phase of things like this.

* WeirdnessMagnet: Some people and places are naturally strange. Like the one corner of the north of England that has seen as many UFO sightings as the rest of the country put together.
