A Very Good First Edition of this "hollow earth" story. C. Regnas is the backwards-spelt pseudonym for Charles Sanger who's Utopian underworld is a similarly backwards-spelt "No Sin".

The backwards spelling theme is further underlined by several chapter / page headings and the page preceding the start of Chapter 3 with the heading "A Lufrewop Elpoep Ni A Lufecaep Esidarap".
