From the publisher

'All about us on the stairs was some of the most exquisite statuary I have ever seen... save for a few pieces carved in the form of some hideous beast, the like of which I have never seen on earth...'

Atlantis has dwelt in the imagination of writers for centuries as a bejewelled mystery bubbling with stories of impossible technology, abyssal horrors and quixotic quests of rediscovery. This anthology collects ten stories of Atlantis, in four sections, opening with Jules Verne’s iconic depiction of the ruined city and including classics from Weird Tales magazine by pulp masters such as Clark Ashton Smith, H. P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard. Prepare to dive into:

Atlantis Rediscovered: Deep-sea encounters with the vestiges of a  drowned civilization.

Atlantis Revisited: Journeys through time via the memories of Atlantean ancestors.

Atlantis Resurrected: What if Atlantis had never been lost, but remained hidden by design?

Atlantis Reimagined: Experimental tales of Weird Fantasy, tentacled cultists, and Atlanteans in space.
