Regarded by many as Shiel’s masterwork, The Lord of the Sea was first published in 1901. “Richard Hogarth utilises the power of a meteor to builf an empire of seaborne fortresses and thereby set himself up as “Lord of the Sea”. Aided by underground forces, submarines and superior gunfire, he repels all who oppose him and achieves his ultimate objective. The comes the moment of his triumph . . . and the discovery of facts about himself that upset the balance of his whole world.” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DESPATCH
