Armchair fiction presents extra-large paperback editions of the best in classic science fiction novels. “The Enchanted Stone” by Charles Lewis Hind is the 37th installment of our "Lost World-Lost Race Classics" series. With a slight twist on the usual Lost World/Lost Race themes, this late Victorian adventure-romance is jam-packed with fantasy. Within these pages, you will find a strange and weird tale told through the apprehensive journalist who happened to find himself in the middle of it all. As a sacred object found its way to the shores of England, following in its path were a set of bizarre characters who worshipped it. This sacred object was the “Enchanted Stone,” given to an ancient king by the “Creator of All Things”. A stone that, once exposed to the rays of the sun, would turn a living red and burn whomever touched it! It is this stone that would be the key to a millenia old prophecy that would bring about the “Great Revelation” and usher in a new age. Unraveling this ancient mystery and more would fall into the lap of one of London’s most discerning journalist.
