The Lure of Atlantis: Strange Tales of the Sunken Continent  edited by Michael Wheatley

Trade Paperback – British Library – April 2024 – 288 pages

The sunken continent of Atlantis has dwelt in the collective imagination of writers and artists for centuries; a bejeweled paradox bubbling with themes of irrecoverable loss and quixotic faith in its rediscovery.

This new anthology collects stories from the vast, yet seldom recognized, vault of Atlantean fiction from the Golden Age of Weird Tales magazine, presented in four core sections, perfect for diving into:

  • Atlantis Rediscovered – in which the ruins of ancient Atlantis are found again
  • Atlantis Revisited – tales of Deep Time, in which the descendants of Atlanteans re-live the experiences of ancestors
  • Atlantis Resurrected – in which Atlantis never sunk at all but remains at large in the world
  • Atlantis Reimagined – in which the continent is fertile ground for experiments in Weird Fantasy and beyond
