Under Plum Lake
|Media type||Print (Hardcover & Paperback)|
|LC Class||PR6054.A87 U5 1980|
A young boy, Barry, explores a cave on the Cornwall coast and discovers a highly advanced subterranean civilization called Egon. Located somewhere deep beneath Earth's oceans, Egon is unknown and inaccessible to humans unless an Egonian chooses to bring them there. On all such occasions, the human being's memories of Egon are erased and replaced with false memories before being returned to the surface.
Kirkus Reviews characterised it as "a little tale, somewhere between fantasy and science fiction, that's less-than-magical yet more than nicely told", written by an author "whose oddly conceived books are usually--like this one--less than fully satisfying."
