The Land That Was, But Yet Exists (unpublished novel)
From Kook Science
|John Uri Lloyd
The Land That Was, But Yet Exists is an unpublished sequel by John Uri Lloyd to his 1895 novel Etidorhpa, of which several preliminary chapters exist in private hands. Unlike his earlier book, Lloyd himself is apparently the main character and narrator in the story, beginning on a Saturday evening in mid-December 1898, as the professor makes his way to his home in Norwood, Cincinnati, and thereafter is compelled to travel abroad, in part for professional purposes (as a cover) and in part as an emissary of the United States sent on a secret mission, winding up first in Aden and later in the audience of Russians.
