This is a brilliant anthology of 25 stories that will capture the hearts and imagination of anyone who grew up like I did on a diet of Boys Own Adventures, Alan Quatermaine and other tales of derring-do. Grab a copy of this book and let your imagination run free for time.

As a boy, some of my favorite stories were those of lost lands and civilizations... Eric J. Guignard brings back a bit of that magic with Dark Tales of Lost Civilizations, an anthology mixing the values of pulp fiction with contemporary standards of fresh description...

...Most of the stories are written in a suggestive style, relying on the reader's own imagination to take the plunge from speculation to horror. This element keeps the collection rooted in the possible, making it scarier, perhaps, than the current saturation of seductive monster-based and slasher fiction.
-- Sheila Shedd, Monster Librarian
