    The story itself was fine, a quick read taken from the 1943 Amazing science fiction magazine. Battleship Idaho is thrown through a space-time crevice to the Dawn of Time and must deal with dinosaurs, Atlanteans, and a traitorous passenger. The story alone I'd give 3 stars; it is fine pulp science fiction, though I would've liked to have seen some more big gun fun from the Idaho.

    The reason I'm giving this ebook offering 1 star is because you can get this story for free on Project Gutenberg. I stumbled over that while trying to look up some background details of the story about 2 hours after paying for it.. Project Gutenberg publishes (for free) ebooks of out-of-copyright books, keeping them in circulation for posterity.

    While it was probably legal to resell here since The Lost WarShip is outside its copyright, charging $2.50 for a free book is disingenuous.
