Hidden Realms, Lost Civilizations, and Beings from Other Worlds

by Jerome Clark
Hidden Realms

We are taken to Lemuria by way of Mount Shasta, to Atlantis, to cities beneath the poles, and to the subterranean world: all secret places now below the sea, under the ice or, creepily, beneath our very feet. Loads of stuff, all elegantly presented too. Buy it.
