Lost Worlds: The Ultimate Anthology: 40 Classic Tales :

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 40 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, Stuart Teitler’s By the World Forgot: Towards a Bibliography of Lost Race Fiction from 1800, and Jessica Amanda Salmonson’s Lost Race Checklist, 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.

Atlantis and Lemuria: 13 Classic Tales :

“Now in this island of Atlantis there was a great and wonderful empire which had rule over the whole island and several others, but there occurred violent earthquakes and floods, and in a single day and night it disappeared into the depths of the sea.” ~ Plato, Timaeus & Critias

Atlantis tales were one of the most popular Lost World sub-genres of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. You could argue that it’s still the most popular Lost World sub-genre today. Plato’s tale of a sunken world has spawned countless books, films and TV shows. The survivors of that sunken continent appeared to have scattered to every corner of the globe, founding new civilizations on every continent, in isolated jungles, underground, or beneath the waves.

This Masterworks of Adventure anthology is a collection of 13 tales considered to be among the best and most influential works.
