Forgotten Worlds

Lost World-Lost Race Classics: Book 2

Howard Browne

Reed McGurn was an American pilot flying a Spitfire for His Majesty's Royal Air Force in WWII. His plane soared into battle in the death-filled skies over southern Germany. The action was fierce, and after a mid-air collision with a German fighter, McGurn's plane was sent hurtling to the ground. Only his plane never reached the ground--at least not the battle-scarred German landscape. With sure death leaping toward him, McGurn found his plane suddenly emersed in a wall of gray clouds--clouds that came seemingly out of nowhere. Moments later his plane crash-landed in a strange world filled with killer beasts and exotic vegetation. It was a world of ancient civilizations and lost races. A world in which McGurn soon found the love of a wild, yet beautiful woman. Unfortunately for him it was also a love that marked him for certain death.

Armed with this new knowledge, Wedderburn then enlisted the help of an adventurer and his niece for the final leg in his never-ending quest. So to the rim of Earth's last frontier they ventured, searching for a long lost girl and holding the sole key to a long forgotten civilization--a civilization that once knew more about science than any scholar in the modern world.

A lost world at the Polar Ice Cap.

Was it a hair-brained scheme, or would it be the most stupendous scientific journey ever undertaken by man? When twin American brothers Torrence and Gurthrie Addlebridge arrived in London, it was to seek financial backing for the construction of a new-fangled air ship (of Torrence's design) that would send mankind into the vast frontier of air flight.

Yet it wasn't this fantastic machine that would prove to be so astonishing, but the plans for its maiden voyage. You see, Torrence Addlebridge knew something that the rest of the scientific world didn't--the existence of another world right here on Earth; a world whose entrance could only be gained by a perilous journey across the frozen wilds of the Arctic.

So the Addlebridge brothers--after some hair-raising incidents--made their way across the Atlantic, into the bitter cold of the Arctic; and what they found was far more fantastic than anything they'd dreamed of.
