    The Lure of Atlantis: Strange Tales from the Sunken Continent

    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.

    MICHAEL WHEATLEY is a practice-based researcher at Royal Holloway, University of London, whose work explores weird fiction in the age of climate crisis. He edited The Horned God: Weird Tales of the Great God Pan, published in this series in 2022.
