The Gregg Press science fiction series). CONTENTS: No great magic. Knight to move, I. Title.

A stranger starts stopping by, a soldier on unofficial leave from the Changewar. Freddy befriends him and is drawn into the wild, shifting worlds of the Changewar.

This book is wordy. Very wordy. There are places where it seriously drags and I had to fight with myself to keep reading. Basically, I stayed with it just to say I did plus I wanted to compare this novel with the Jules Verne take on Poe's novel about Arthur Gordon Pym. The novel had a kind of Mysterious Island feel to it when the narration was moving forward. Unfortunately, a large portion of the novel was not moving the plot forward. Some editing could probably cut this work in half, much like this review. However, when I got to the ending, I had to re-read the final few pages...several times in fact and then I just sat in my chair, staring as I've done at movie screens when the occasional great ending comes along, and this book had a great ending. Getting to it was a chore, but if you do, I would think you would be satisfied. There is one thing though. The ending could be open to a different interpretation then I got, so I would hesitate to guarantee another reader's satisfaction. Anyway. On to Jules Verne.

A bit of background is necessary to appreciate and enjoy this story. Edgar Allan Poe is best known for his macabre poetry and stories. Lesser known is his novel "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket", similar to Verne's scifi-travelogs. Poe tells the story in the third person, a sailor's story of traveling to the South Pole and the strange things they find there (note at this time -1838- no one had yet traveled there, although some explorers had seen the Antarctic coast). Critiques of this work by other authors and reviewers were very mixed. The negative ones focused on certain incomplete story threads and conflicting events. Then as now, people mistook a fictional account for fact. Charles Romyn Dake sought to come to Poe's assistance, and possibly take advantage, the publicity and controversy by writing "A Strange Discovery". This story reads quite smoothly, continuing the narrative where Poe's ends. It does tie up the loose ends very conveniently, weaving more actual facts into the story. Perhaps he was trying to 'one up' Poe? Exploring Poe's, Dake's, and other authors of the time interactions and lives make a mystery almost more interesting than their fictional stories.

Another Antarctic Mystery tale.

A insipid and uninteresting book. I got bored quickly and could not finish it. It was free so there was no lost

I've just started reading `older' novels and books, I'm very happy, as I find that I have run out of good stories written in the present - at least with these authors of the past, they were best sellers, vs. many I read today that I find in remainder book sales....

In A Strange Discover, Gordon Pym and his travel companion Dirk Peters are swept into an extraordinary unexplored region in the Antarctic Sea where they find an island utopia run by descendants of fourth-century Romans. The story combines the adventures of Pym with an adventure story in the hollow earth, run by an advanced race of Romans partly in the manner of Indiana Jones...as this island has an entrance to the hollow earth. Dake uses this to offer his version of a utopian civilization that is rather interesting (more than I expected for a `hollow earth' story), soon a potential disaster looms...

A truly intriguing book!

A rather incredibly good book by a onetime author, a utopian view of life, as experienced by Roman citizens, who live in a warm, island, in 1900. These are decedents of `Rome' SPQR - THAT sort of Roman citizen...who live near the entrance to the hollow earth. An interesting way to present a utopian concept, and very imaginative and creative. Especially as the author used the same characters as Edger Allen Poe in one of Poe's books (his only full length novel).

Readers who do like alternative history, the Roman period, or hollow earthers, will like the book, as well as those who enjoy reading different utopian or dystopian novels. The book is also a great adventure story, so it's compelling on that basic level too. No matter what, you will enjoy this ingenious story!

A Strange Discovery is a fascinating book, for many reasons:

1) Romans of the Roman Empire have hidden themselves and are now an advanced race
2) Its a `Hollow Earth' novel
3) Its a utopian literary work
4) The book uses characters from a old Edger Allen Poe book and picks up where Poe left off (but it's not necessary to read Poe's book - it's more of a footnote)
5) Its an adventure story
6) Its an Alternative History book

So, if you are someone like me that like all of the above, AND you like a darn good story, you'll love A Strange Discovery. It's a really, really fascinating book and a great read!
