Thanks to Scott Cupp, I finally got around to reading C. J. Cutcliffe Hyne’s The Lost Continent, one of the best stories of Atlantis you’ll ever read. The Lost Continent was published in 1899. Lin Carter reprinted the book in his famous
Ballantine Adult Fantasy series in 1972. I, of course, bought an original copy. But that now resides at SUNY at Buffalo. The tale of death and destruction is narrated by Deucalion, a warrior-priest of ancient Atlantis. He’s about the only honorable character in the book. Atlantis is engaged in a civil war. The ruler of Atlantis, the beautiful Phorenice, launches her kingdom on a doomed course. If you enjoy High Adventure in the classic style, you’ll love The Lost Continent.
