Lovecraftian Influence? Raising Atlantis by Thomas Greanias

Chrispy is behind on his reading. Just finished Raising Atlantis. I was intrigued when I heard the author describe it on the George Noory CoastToCoastAM show. Lovecraft followed Poe to Antarctica, but there is little to show a dorect influence on At The Mountains of Madness.

Still, there is a heritage, since the book is filled with New Age reinterpretations of Egypt, Aztec, and Platonic myths. I will not give much away by saying this is a quick read, potboiling novel that centers around global climate change, plate tectonics, a miles high pyramid buried deep in the Antarctic ice adjacent to an eldritch necropolis.
