The waterlogged galleries and chambers are clearly etched in. This road to the upper world which he tried to clear had many notes beside it. Lul-luma translated them for me. They show the place he drove the beast men that he had under his control into clearing great falls of rock, sometimes several yards in length

A Note on the Author. Dennis Wheatley was my grandfather. He only had one child, my father Anthony, from his first marriage to Nancy Robinson. Nancy was the youngest in a large family of ten Robinson children and she had a wonderful zest for life and a gaiety about her that I much admired as a boy brought up in the dull Seventies.

They Found Atlantis book. With the conclusion to this book I have now read the entire collection of Dennis Wheatley published by Heron books. To have finished with this adventure story was absolutely devine. How I wish a Hollywood producer would pick this one up and turn it into a film.

Though it is an exciting read, THEY FOUND ATLANTIS would have been better had Wheatley left out the plot to cheat an heiress and concentrated on the wonderful adventure of people discovering the remnants of Atlantis after their diving bell's cable breaks. As it is the adventurers don't really get to Atlantis until more than halfway into the story, leaving little time to develop that part of the plot. And, one gets a bit uncomfortable at the way the people of Atlantis had intermarried over the years. THEY FOUND ATLANTIS is a pretty good story, but for a really great novel about the lost continent Conan Doyle did it much better in THE MARACOT DEEP a decade earlier. It's interesting to compare the differing ideas on how the sunken continent survived underwater.
If this book were entitled "They Didn't Actually Use Dark Forces But There Was A Lot Of Excitement, Courage And Interestingly-Applied Psychology" it would be more accurate.

Worth reading, but don't expect more than an above-average adventure yarn.
I read this when I was a kid and it really impressed me: derring-do, occult thrills, a hot dame, and Adolf Hitler. I dipped into it again years later and discovered a fairly pedestrian thriller, but if you're young and looking for seemingly arcane and forbidden reading, this will fill the bill. I read several other Wheatleys and this was, for my teenage (well, pre-teen) money, the best. It spurred a life-long interest in the occult. Though I remain a skeptic, I love reading about the mountebanks and charlatans who populate its byways. "They Used Dark Forces" boasts a nasty magus clearly based on Aleister Crowley, who was a thousand times more interesting than his fictional counterpart here. Still and all, good fun for an undemanding (or naive) reader....
This book, published in the 1930s, is somewhat different Wheatley fare. For one thing, it's unusually imaginative, with Wheatley's descriptions of aquatic and other life found by the protagonists during deep-sea explorationn in quest of lost Atlantis believable and lively. Likewise enjoyable is the adventure the characters undergo when, saved by chance from stultifying death on the ocean floor, they encounter a race of horrible, fish-eating humanoids who chase them until they finally reach the lost island of Atlantis, now existing in a submerged but beautiful state, with a race of pleasure loving, peaceful survivors. The legend of Atlantis has fascinated many, and the book reveals how even decades ago people believed the lost continent to have stood on what is now the Azores. They Found Atlantis demonstrates the fascination that continues until today with the tale of a perfect world that was destroying itself before being destroyed.
I've read other Wheatley Novels in the more traditional way and this one was not up to his usual standards. It was slow moving, unimaginative, and I finally had to throw it on the rubbish heap. Nick Mercer is the worst reader I've stumbled across. Absolutely Dreadful. He sounds like a British Fop most of the time and took a poor book and made it bad. I will be on the look out for his readings and avoid them like the plague.
Using the Satanic occult in an attempt to bring down Hitler in WWII?
It's always fun when an author uses alternative means as to the fall of Nazi Germany or a parallel dimension to it's surival.
Here Dennis Wheatley uses one of the more famous events to portray his story. The fall of Hitler and the reason behind it, duping Hitler to believe that he will be ressurected as a superbeing that would rule the world. As if he wasn't trying to already.
A little dark for those with a weak stomach but you soon get use to it.
