Product description

Product Description

Long before Indiana Jones...

The ‘Lost World’ or ‘Lost Race’ genre was one of the most popular genres of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This Masterworks of Adventure anthology is a collection of 33 tales considered to be among the best and most influential works. We started with 333: A Bibliography of the Science-Fantasy Novel, by Crawford, Donahue and Grant (1953), which lists the best works published before 1950, then cross-referenced them with Science-fiction, the Early Years by Everett Franklin Bleiler and Jessica Amanda Salmonson’s Lost Race Check Guide, the ultimate checklist for collectors. You’ll find stories told in a variety of styles: travelogues, boy’s adventure, romantic adventure, philosophical adventure and pulp fiction. Some have been made available for Kindle for the very first time and are exclusive to ROH Press.

The Queen of California (First Kindle Edition)

"In this drive-in, fly-out mechanical mayhem that our modern world has become, who in his right mind gives a thought to Incan cities still flourishing in the high Andes, or to the existence of a medieval stronghold somewhere amid the shifting sands of the Sahara? And who, with a thread of scientific sophistication, would wonder if a mighty civilization did await discovery in the earth's interior? Nonsense! Obsolete romantic drivel—And yet there is present an increasing eagerness to forsake sophistication and training in order to find, or be carried off to, overlooked "Edens" of adventure, romance, and archaeological wonder. Readers of Extrapolation know that the "lost-race" novel is, categorically, an example of off-trail fantasy which borders on science fiction. It has been and is one of the major frameworks through which utopian schemes are promulgated. H. Rider Haggard set the trend, invented the props, and proved the marketability of the lost race romance." ~ Stuart A. Teitler
