Description:

The second of the three Polaris Janess science fiction novellas, sequel to "Polaris—of the Snows".

A group of ancient Greeks have found a refuge in a hidden valley in Antarctica, the valley being kept warm and green by the surrounding volcanoes. ("Sardanes, the mystical volcanic valley, set like an emerald in the white fastnesses of the Antarctic, blooming with tropical verdure, and peopled with a fragment of the ancient Greek nation, the Hellenes, whose victories Bard Homer sang.") Then things become difficult: the volcanoes start going extinct, and the valley starts freezing. Clearly the situation calls for Polaris, that famous son of the Antarctic! (We use the November 1949 version, the first appearance of the novella as a single complete unit. The August 1916 original version was a three-part serialization in All-Story Weekly.)
