The idea that the Earth is hollow has inspired both the world of science and the world of fiction. As a scientific concept, this notion has informed the works of Edmond Halley and Leonhard Euler. As a literary conceit, it can be found in the works of Dante and E.A. Poe; in novels by Jules Verne, Arno Schmidt, Thomas Pynchon, and Mark Z. Danielewski; and in comics, films, and computer games. This collection addresses both the scientific and the aesthetic aspects of the "Hollow Earth," with essays that range from medieval literature to afrofuturism.

DISCOVER HIDDEN WORLDS AND UNDERGROUND CIVILIZATIONS British House of Lords Member Searches For Lost Atlantis Inside The Hollow Earth! In addition to being the author of numerous books on UFOs and extraterrestrial archeology, Brinsley Le Poer Trench was for several decades the editor of the prestigious British Flying Saucer Review. But, his greatest influence came about as a member of England's House of Lords. Trench, who held the title Earl of Clancarty, long campaigned in the Halls of Parliament for the Crown to "come clean" on matters related to close encounters. While the Earl strongly endorsed the theory that aliens have been coming here since the dawn of creation, toward the en of his career, his ideas took on a stranger turn, encompassing the notion that an ancient "pre-deluge" civilization existed in what we commonly refer to as the Lost Continent of Atlantis. Intermingling with this Atlantean culture were space beings arriving regularly for various reasons, some beneficial, some destructive. "The result of which," says Brinsley, "is a long panoramic narrative in the form of legends and myths, telling us of gods that come from outer space, who ruled over Atlantis an were the progenitors of our own civilization. They also fought terrible wars, and made grotesque monsters and giants with reptilian legs (and bodies), that turned upon the gods themselves." Trench adds that the Atlanteans tried to escape the surging chaos by using thermal drills and electron ray guns to bore out a massive tunnel system that extends even to this very day from the surface to the hollow core of our planet. There the Atlanteans still lie in peace and tranquility away from the war-like elements upon the surface. In this book, the author takes the reader on an exploration like no other. Here are tales of polar openings, hidden civilizations, strange underground races, Admiral Byrd's Top Secret discoveries, the central sun, the Shaver Mystery and much more that will open your eyes to a new reality like never before! Denis Crenshaw of the Hollow Earth Insider has added a lengthy new introduction bringing the topic up to date and there are some mind blowing photos of the entrances at the North and South Poles. A MUST for hollow earth believers and those who collect all material on the Inner Earth.
