We’re looking for tales of lost civilisations, perfect societies that withdraw from the world, from the plains of Saharan Africa, to the India of the Indus, from subterranean coastlines to narrow mountain ravines, hidden by vistas of cloud, but enchanting the minds of those yearning for something better, something beyond. They can be utopias in the style of Samuel Butler, or Charlotte Perkins Gilman, or walled cities in the deserts of Robert E. Howard.
Stories of Atlantis began with Plato but the idea of a perfect society, lost to the world, has haunted the speculative mind for over 2000 years. Atlantean tales of Francis Bacon led to the Utopian tales of Thomas More, Charlotte Perkins Gilman and William Morris, and in modern times, TV series and short stories galore.
