Details

One of the more fanciful theories produced by the nineteenth century was the idea that the interior of the Earth is hollow, and contains a world of its own. A prime example of this fantastic notion is Bradshaw's exotic Goddess of Atvatabar. Lexington White, heir to a vast fortune, sets out to explore the North Pole in a great ship of his own design. An Arctic upheaval reveals a huge vortex in the ocean which draws the explorers into an inner world lighted by a miniature sun shining perpetually. Flying men with metal wings escort the explorers to the court of the King of Atvatabar, the inner-world continent lying opposite the Atlantic Ocean. The marvels of the land are many: mechanical ostriches for cavalry, intercontinental monorails, airships powered by "magnicity," strange plant-animals, and mystical ceremonies by which "twin-souls" (eternally separated lovers) are dedicated to a life apart from each other in celibate service to the goddess Harikar. Lyone, a beautiful woman thought to be the goddess incarnate, is doomed to this lonely existence until she and White fall in love. The sacrilege produces a religious civil war in which Lyone's forces and the Americans are pitted against the armies of the outraged King. A great naval battle between White's ship and the fleet of Atvatabar appears to be lost when the tide is turned by the arrival of British and American warships, who have followed White in search of the lost expedition. The enemy fleet is captured, the King is killed, and White is the new ruler of Atvatabar, with Lyone as his Queen.
