Armchair fiction presents extra-large paperback editions of the best in classic science fiction novels. “The City of Wonder” by E. Charles Vivian is the 36th installment of our "Lost World-Lost Race Classics" series. They followed the danger-filled road to Kir-Asa! With only rumor and an old journal to guide him, Philip Watkins employs Jack Faulkner and Cecil Bent for a turbulent adventure through steamy jungles and old ruins in a quest to find the lost city of Kir-Asa, which—according to legend—was one of the last strongholds of Lemuria. Following an ancient road, the three adventurers soon find evidence that the antediluvian metropolis they seek is indeed real, stumbling across the skeleton of a long dead explorer. Near the shrunken bones is a written account of Kir-Asa’s location and the man’s desperate attempt to escape. Lastly, is a final cryptic message:
“Kill Nantia—who rules the Monkeys!”
With those words and a path to guide them, the three explorers set off to find a city lost in time and to confront whatever friend of foe is still alive within its crumbling walls.
