Synopsis

When adventurers Bastin, Bickley, and Arbuthnot are marooned on a South Sea island, they discover two Atlanteans in a state of suspended animation. One of the awakened sleepers, Lord Oro, is a superman -- the last king of the Sons of Wisdom, who'd relied on hyper-advanced technology to subjugate the planet's lesser peoples. The other is Oro's sexy daughter, Yva... who falls in love with Arbuthnot. Using astral projection, Lord Oro visits London and the battlefields of the Western Front. Why? To determine whether or not he should once again employ an infernal chthonic machine to drown the worthless human race, as he'd done 250,000 years earlier!

The novel, which Rudyard Kipling helped plot, was first published in 1919.
