Charles Hoy Fort (August 6, 1874 – May 3, 1932), was a researcher of anomalous phenomena. Karl van Sant had a letter penned by him in his collection, asking his friend about the SSS or Super-Sargasso Sea, an area beside the Bermuda Triangle that Fort believed was a dimension where lost things go.

Today, the terms Fortean and Forteana are used to characterize various such apparently abnormal phenomena.
