Armchair fiction presents extra-large paperback editions of the best in classic science fiction novels. Roy Norton's "The Land of the Lost, Illustrated Edition" is the 25th installment of our "Lost World-Lost Race Classics" series. Alone in the darkness of his hut, a man watched a needle begin its violent course across a moving cylinder. The instrument was a Seismograph and its vigilant attendant, a once prominent scientist named Dr. Pablo Martinez, watched in horror as the device scratched frantically in the quiet of the night. Martinez knew what the cryptic message meant—a massive undersea earthquake. With monstrous tidal waves only a matter of hours away, Martinez knew his quick call to action could save millions of lives, but only if the world would listen… Captain James Tipton of the USS Seattle was one person who did listen. Ordering his ship out to deep sea, he saved his crew from the titanic wall of water that rushed on to consume countless ships and West Coast cities under its destructive surge. But little did Tipton realize that this earthquake had brought up something from the ocean depths far stranger and far more menacing than anything mankind had ever imagined.
