A great work of fantastical adventure-of a world within our world At the end of the nineteenth century and the first part of the twentieth century fantastical tales of other worlds and times began to grip the imaginations of the reading public, and the prolific output of authors such as Verne, Rice Burroughs, Haggard and Howard propelled the authors to public recognition and their works to abiding popularity. These were among the best kwn authors of this genre at the time but they were by means alone in their endeavours or in their choice of subject matter. Off world destinations-whether real or imagined-were popular as were adventures set in fictional pasts and the exotic legendary cultures of the Atlantean age. Having considered the potentials of time and space it was perhaps inevitable that authors would turn their imaginations to the possibilities of a world within our own-a vast landscape hidden from view, alien in flora, fauna and cultures, peopled by strange beings and races often at war with each other. Fortunately, they also usually included the capacity to produce human women of incomparable grace, beauty and an aversion to full body covering. The many enthusiasts of this type of fiction will be pleased to discover that this substantial vel is one of the above and a roller coaster adventure to the last turn of the page. Join this resourceful band of adventurers as they brave the ice to enter a lush and verdant world, altogether primitive and yet able to muster techlogy in advance of that yet kwn upon the surface. Often recognised as one of the finest examples of its kind, the enticing and other-worldly land of 'The Goddess of Atvatabar' lies waiting for you to discover for yourself. Available in softcover and hardcover with dust jacket for collectors.
