New in Paperback: A. Merritt's THE MOON POOL
Available in paperback this month is a new edition of the science fiction classic, The Moon Pool, by A. Merritt. First published in 1918, The Moon Pool is widely considered to be the inspiration of the popular ABC series Lost. In an introduction written especially for this edition, Dr. Lynnette Porter comments: "Ever wonder what might have inspired the TV series Lost? Long before Jack or John Locke began to explore their mysterious tropical island, A. Merritt created a seemingly innocent island with sinister undertones, a mysterious hidden society of other-worldly inhabitants, and characters who debate the wisdom of faith versus science. Sound familiar? A trip to The Moon Pool takes you from Merritt's adventure into a new way to get Lost."
