Armchair fiction presents extra-large paperback editions of the best in classic science fiction novels. “The Sea Demons” by Victor Rousseau is the 38th installment of our "Lost World-Lost Race Classics" series. Captain Masterman was a stalwart, seasoned British naval officer. He had been well respected within the ranks of his fellow naval peers—that is until he went missing at sea and came back spouting mad theories about sea demons with his crew having mysteriously disappeared. Submarine commander Donald Paget was skeptical of these wild claims, but he listened attentively to the old captain’s stories in a saloon one day shortly before the captain died. As fate would have it, on his next voyage out Paget’s submarine was assailed by the very monsters Masterman had warned him of! These translucent, insect-like, quasi-humanoid monsters devoured everything in sight and it seemed doubtful that Paget and his crew would ever see the ocean’s surface again.
