Sunken worlds
Thanks for the articles! I heard about a pylon from Cleopatra's palace in Alexandra being found a few days ago

and it made me remember "The Hand of Isis," a book by Jo Graham that selki and I had started a few years ago (it was her book, and I never got around to borrowing it and finishing it.). So I checked it out from the library and was pleased with how it was done.
