Format: Paperback
This is a great book. I found it about ten years ago in a small bookshop in Los Angeles (where else?), and sat up that night, with a candle burning on my patio and a glass of red wine at my elbow, utterly entranced. Mr. Kafton-Minkel is a writer of elegance and ease. He has that gift of straight-forward narrative (and high intelligence) so rare in writers of, as he humbly puts it in his forward, "crazy subjects." He tells the story of the Hollow Earth as if he were a calm Martin Gardner describing both the making of King Kong and the founding of Scientology in the same essay. In other words, he lets the crazies speak and lets his own fine mind let them do so, with comments that illuminate, and never disparage, his subjects. This is the very best of what the blinkered world calls "fringe" writing, by which I mean a disciplined, humane, skeptical, lovely, scary, beautifully written history that critics with no imagination will never understand; not the point of the author's labor, his ways or purposes, what this guy was really trying to get at. Hail, sir, and well done. I'm glad you're getting damned near a hundred bucks for a copy-- some folks know a good thing when they see it. Write more. Never Give Up.

This is a truly fascinating and fun volume. As a previous reviewer remarked, this is the perfect book to sit up reading at night with a glass (or two) of a good wine. Very informative and extremely entertaining...

Unless you get lucky like I did for a used version. Places around the net wanted up to 200 dollars for this tome. It is written reasonably well and interesting if you believe in that hollow earth stuff. But no way in hell was it worth 200 bucks and people on amazon and other sites who were asking for 200 or so dollars ought to be tossed into jail.
