Haggard, H. Rider: Haggard Anthology Vol 6. v4. 7th Mar 2010
H. Rider Haggard more or less single-handedly invented the genre of the "Lost Civilisation" fantasy novel, and this 6th volume of my anthology contains four very different examples of such novels - including a book which is my favourite Haggard novel and which would very definitely appear on my "top 10 books" list.
The books are:
1. The People of the Mist
A lost African civilisation and a monstrous crocodile god.
2. Heart of the World
A golden Mayan city under a lake and - you've guessed it - a lost civilisation.
3. Queen Sheba's Ring
Yet another lost civilisation in Africa, this time descended from ancient Abyssinian Jews.
4. When the World Shook
This is my favourite Haggard book - a wonderful fantasy which has it all. In this one, suspended animation brings into the present day a super-ancient Atlantean civilization. Spirit travel, reincarnation, occult powers, teleportation, subterranean city, elixir of life, etc etc.
EDIT: 30 Mar 08
