Jessica Amanda Salmonson, • The Journal of the Independent Online Booksellers Association • November 8, 2002

The basis of the past popularity of Lost Race novels were the novels of H. Rider Haggard, whose excellence in such classic novels as Allan Quatermain and She hundreds of lesser talents recognized as worthy of imitation.

Rider Haggard set the trend, invented the props, and proved the marketability of the lost race romance." ~ Stuart A. Teitler
