Luckily this Lemurian stele was standing nearby!

Also, I would have loved to have Haveland make a quip referencing The Most Dangerous Game - but it turns out that this story didn't get published until four years after his death.

uh, he wants short-shorts?

man, that things is a muzzle-loader? which I guess makes it literally a hand cannon

At least all that muzzle-loading buys them enough time to push around a large slab of rock!

And Haveland would probably be quite surprised by some of the changes in coffee culture since his time.
I mean for starters, back then all the people serving the coffee wore clothes. *

* OK, I admit that was rather a cheap shot. ;-)

ain't nothin' cheap about bikini beans

And in Haveland's time, things were a lot more morally monochromatic. Only an unsophisticated, myopic eye* can favor such an era.

(Or a certain Stonecastle...)

Man, those Lemurians really left their mark, eh?

My head canon is that back in the day, the Atlanteans, Lemurians and the Mu were all entangled with each other in your typical geopolitical shenanigans...

In my older superhero projects, I had Atlantis and Lemuria at war.
They were the source of all magic in my reality, which is what sucked them into two other pocket dimensions at the bloodiest part of their war.
People THINK that Atlantis 'sank' and Lemuria was "destroyed", but both civilizations still exist - just not on Earth.
Also the reason that magic is very scarce in my superhero writings.

BTW, a while ago I read your rant about Atlantis clichés - and was glad that my version at least didn't tick off too many of these boxes...
