Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Michael Pye has been an acquisitions editor for New Page Books since 2003 acquiring hundreds of books in that time. He developed a healthy appetite for the unexplained by watching far too many episodes of In Search Of hosted by Leonard Nimoy after school instead of doing his homework, which turned him into a reader of books on the strange and unexplained. He earned a BA in English from Southern Connecticut State University.

Kirsten Dalley has functioned in various editorial capacities at New Page Books since 2004. She is coauthor of The Nightmare Encyclopedia, along with Jeff Belanger. She graduated from Columbia University with a BA in comparative literature, which has proven to be of use in both her career and her leisure pursuits (reading fiction and riding sportbikes).

It is very interesting to read how researchers put history together that makes sense.

LOST CIVILIZATIONS is an excellent anthology of the "ancient mystery" & "alien conspiracy" genre.

Format: Paperback
This book is a collection of 15 original essays by 16 "unofficial" archaeologists (see list at end of this review). I've read works by several of these authors, previously. The basic premise behind their works is that official archaeologists (and those in related disciplines) have some explaining to do. Officialdom simply dismisses some evidence out of hand, causing a distortion in the official historical record.

Now to be fair to the archeologists, some of the "evidence" is poor and some of the conclusions reached by "alternative" researchers simply do not hold up. Both camps make good points. But there is a strong "Not invented here" streak in the orthodoxy, and I think that's because it's uncomfortable to change established views in light of new evidence or, for that matter, old evidence.

The main value of this book is the curious reader can read the views of 16 leading "alternative" researchers without having to read 16 books. That said, I find only a few of these authors to be tedious (the presented essays, however, are not tedious; I am referring to reading book length works). Others, such as Erich von Daniken, are always a good read.

This work covers a wide range of subjects, from the pyramids to archeological scandals. One author even covers the idea of ancient nuclear weapons and raises some very hard to answer questions from the evidence.

In this book, Philip Coppens provides his theories on Atlantis. I've read (and enjoyed) Coppens before, and respect his work and his attitude toward examining the unexplained. His take on Atlantis is the first one that ever made sense to me. Normally, I will not read anything on Atlantis because of how poorly that's been done by others.

NOTE: As a preface to this review, I want to make my position clear on the subjects covered. I consider myself an open-minded skeptic. I neither endorse nor condemn the material in this book. It's true that the Scientific Establishment often snidely spits dialectical pot shots at dissident scholars & writers engaged in the alternative reality genre. Some of the subjects are more complelling than others, but mutual respect should be the norm, not personal attack. On the other hand, alternative writers should stick with the scientific method rather than engage in unprovable, "intuitive" flights of fancy--otherwise their work runs the risk of being legitimately classified as fantasy, rather than reality. Science should not be used as ideology--and this applies to both sides of the issue.

LOST CIVILIZATIONS is an excellent anthology of the "ancient mystery" & "alien conspiracy" genre. It features among the best & well-known authors in the field--von Daniken, Phillip Coppens, Nick Redfern, etc. Each chapter is composed by one of the featured authors & presents individual views on a wide range of inter-connected core theories & speculation. Each & every segment is fully engaging, replete with original insights & thought-provoking information. I had that positive feeling of looking forward to each chapter.

In the first chapter "Archaeological Scandals", writer Frank Joesph presents some very interesting insights into various artifacts that legitimately support the idea that North America was not only "discovered" before Columbus, but was civilized aeons before that. One artifact is The Kensington Rune Stone which has an interesting provenace no matter how you look at it.

Format: Paperback
Lost Civilizations and Secrets of the Past-Exposed,
Uncovered and De-classified is a compendium of
anecdotal and scientific research aimed at explaining
important evolutionary trends and defining historical
events on our planet. For instance, the Ice Age ended
10,500 years ago at the same time a comet hit the Bahamas.
Sea levels rose 400 feet and people passed down legends
of lost continents. During the Great Ice Age, water was
locked in continent-spanning ice sheets. Sea levels
fell 400 feet. Resultingly, the Persian Gulf was dry
land up to the modern day Straits of Hormuz.

There are interesting stories of lost continents.
Mu is sandwiched between California and Asia;
whereas, Atlantis is somewhere between Florida
and Africa. Dr. Juris Zarins has done extensive
research which has lead him to believe that the
Garden of Eden is under the waters of the
Persian Gulf. Wolter discover unequivocal proof
that the Norse explorers were in the American
mid-west 130 years prior to Columbus.

In June, 1949, a pilot flew to fifteen thousand
feet of Mount Ararat. The chief photographer on
the aircraft saw a 500 foot man-made object
protruding from the southwest edge of Mount Ararat.
Astoundingly, the 3 pyramids of Giza are arranged
in a Pythagorean triangle; such that, the sides are
in a 3-4-5 ratio. The distance of the Great Pyramid
from the earth's center is exactly the same
as the distance to the North Pole.

The British astronomer Gerald Hawkins fed a total
of 7140 different combinations into a software
program. He wanted to find out which combinations
occurred as outlier points and therefore perfectly
random.
