From Here to Atlantis

$ 3.99

Description :


If a second journey were being made delving into the earth after an earthquake opened a passageway -- one that would take you to ancient ruins of a subterranean village that may have been originally part of Atlantis, would you go? And what if on a high ledge above that village you find a remnant of a time capsule from space that existed before the time of Atlantis, one that could take you back to that lost civilization, would you make the ultimate time journey?
Sloan Abbott, a bookish academic with the learned ability to successfully #remote view, is added to the crew chosen to make the second journey inside a new fissure in the earth to locate a missing British explorer. He is chosen by Lesley Hayden, world-traveled archaeologist. Both are interested in the legend of the lost civilization of Atlantis, Sloan having seen it from the air in a remote viewing session. Lesley also believes that it actually existed. The ex-military leader of the expedition, Alan Rhinehart, clearly believes that Sloan's being a scholar does not qualify him for a possibly dangerous mission. Marvin Chou is the timid electronics expert who comes to believe that Sloan does not like Asians because of a bad experience with an Asian girlfriend.
After their descent beneath the earth in a vehicle called the Mole-Car, they discover an abandoned ancient village enclosed in a pocket of barely breathable air and faintly glowing cavern walls. Gradually accumulated evidence leads them to believe that this is a remnant of the lost civilization, pushed inside the earth by an extraterrestrial projectile that struck and destroyed the civilization. At one point, Alan abandons the crew by stealing the Mole-Car but returns with a new crew whom he recruited for suspicious purposes. Sloan and Lesley climb inside the cavern walls and ascend to one of the high ledges which support a temple. Marvin remains in the city and is joined by Alan's crew of freebooters.
Inside the temple, Sloan and Lesley discover a piece of the projectile that originally struck Atlantis, only to realize that it is a machine sent through space to gather information streamed on a timeline. Both of them have visions of Atlantis. Lesley disappears and Sloan is eventually swept up into a vortex -- a time tunnel which deposits him with a tribe of women who are enemies of Atlantis. He gets involved in a battle and is taken as prisoner, only to meet Sir Percy, the British explorer who had been part of the first party to explore inside the earth.
When he eventually ends up in the center of Atlantis, he meets Lesley in the guise of a beautiful lady of royalty -- her own distant ancestor. Sloan develops a relationship of sorts with the now-captive leader of the tribe of agricultural women, but she is threatened when she and the other women prisoners are put into an arena to die at the hands of Atlantean gladiators. Sloan, Percy, and Lesley must also decide which of them is to return to deal with Alan and the others back in the subterranean village in our own time. The other two want to remain in Atlantis and take their chances with the fleeing survivors. Some choice!

Steve Catto
About: Steve Catto is an old man, or at least that's what it says on his birth certificate. He was born in Yorkshire, but his parents took him to Australia when he was six years old and he grew up there, sometimes racing cars across the desert.

He was never very good at school, but the one thing he did learn was how to learn, and he started writing programs for the computer at the local university, much to the disdain of his teachers who told him that he would ‘never make a living out of that rubbish'. In his late teens he returned to the UK, and his parents followed him – which wasn't what he wanted because he was hoping to get away from them. His first proper job was in the computer department of an infamous Oxford publishing company, and he subsequently went on to write software for electricity control systems, and simulators for the military. He started to fly gliders and wrote programs to analyse the data from aircraft flight recorders, where he also learned to fly, and crash, lots of other types of aircraft as well – which was the best part of the job. At various times in his career he has also lived and worked in France, Switzerland, and Canada, and he now lives in Scotland. Since appearing in school plays as a child he has performed almost continuously on the amateur stage, and spent a few years scuba diving. These two things have nothing to do with each other. In terms of his pedigree as an author he has written many technical manuals and filled in countless timesheets, so is well versed in the art of conjuring up works of fiction, however he has never written a novel before, especially not one that involves a blonde girl and a man with a bow and arrow, but he did once spend three weeks working in a factory that made handles for buckets.
