"Of all the worlds of fantasy literature, I seem most deeply fascinated by the lost lands of legend – by those far and mysterious realms and continents presumed by dreamers to have flourished in remote, prehistoric ages.
"I think it is the unsolved mystery of these 'evening isles fantastical' that teases my curiosity and captivates my imagination. Did the oceans drink down the shining cities of Atlantis? Did mighty Mu founder beneath the waves before 'history began? Was there ever a lost polar paradise of Hyperborea? Did the Seven Isles of Antillia ever exist...?
"Since we cannot look to science or history or archeology for the age-lost annals of Atlantis or Ultima Thule or Lemuria, we must turn to fantasy fiction to satisfy our thirst for their marvels..."
Lin Carter's LOST WORLDS is truly a unique and marvel-haunted tour through magic lands no longer known to man.
