¶ Science Fiction, Lost Race. An earthquake submerges most of the American west coast, and a new land mass is discovered in the Pacific, surrounded by a magnetic force-field. An advanced scientific nation lies beyond, inhabited by a people descended from the Atlanteans. "One of the better lost races of the period" - E.F. Bleiler.
