Rudy Rucker writes, "'Return to the Hollow Earth' is my new steampunk novel of the Hollow Earth."
Suppose Earth is hollow, like a tennis ball. And you're weightless in there! The wondrous Hollow Earth holds jungles, seas, native tribes, flying pigs, killer nautiluses, giant ants, and live flying saucers."
In "Return to the Hollow Earth," Our young hero Mason and his wife Seela embark on a return voyage to the Hollow Earth with Edgar Allan Poe, traversing a great maelstrom at the North Pole. Strange encounters with the black skysurfers, and the giant sea cucumbers at the Earth's core. When Mason and Seela return to the surface, they're in Santa Cruz, California---in the year 2018.
