Apex is proud to present the first book in Grand Master Award winner Brian Keene's long-awaited new series, a loving ode to lost world classics like Burroughs's PELLUCIDAR, Howard's ALMURIC, and Lansdale's THE DRIVE-IN, but with a modern twist only Brian Keene could conceive.

When modern-day occultist Aaron Pace discovers the secrets of inter-dimensional travel via a mystical pathway called The Labyrinth, he wastes no time in exploring a multitude of strange new worlds and alternate realities. But then, Aaron finds himself trapped in the most bizarre dimension of all — a place where dinosaurs coexist with giant robots, where cowboys fight reptilian lizard people, and where even the grass can kill you. This is a world populated by the missing and the disappeared, a world where myth is reality and where the extinct is reborn. Now, side-by-side with his new companions Kasheena and Bloop, Aaron must learn to navigate its dangers and survive long enough to escape... THE LOST LEVEL.

This book is just a fun romp through an imaginary lost world where one could encounter anything from dinosaurs, giant robots, aliens, Nazis, carnivorous piranha birds, a blue furred companion and, of course, the beautiful, mostly naked, native girl who is our hero’s guide. The Lost Level is a dimension of our reality where things that disappear in our plane of existence go and accumulate, and this includes a field of individual, unpaired lost socks. Our hero, Aaron Pace, finds a way to travel to different dimensions using occult methods but, then finds that there is no return. The real key to this story is that the author writes in a 1920’s Edgar Rice Burrough style where there is never a dull moment. It is very clear and smoothly written and, while it is a drastic change from the author’s normal horror genre, it does not fall short. The story adds action to every page and this makes it such a great reality-escaping read. But as all great escapes, they are over far too quickly, but I understand that a sequel is in process. Stay tuned. Phillip M. Johns
