Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

In the mythology around the development of the artist and oddball writer Richard Shaver who had created the accounts on Lemuria, Deros, and others, appeared in the Astounding Science-Fiction magazine in the Forties in the United States, is an account without credibility about a meeting of 1952 with a being from inside the Earth.

The story, published in a 80's fanzine dedicated to Shaver, indicates that that year, in Lake June, California, at an unknown hour, one Jack Peterson saw a small humanoid who had emerged from a cone-shaped apparatus; which had apparently emerged the depths of the Earth. After the small humanoid reinstated his apparatus, it again disappeared inside the ground.

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Lake June, California, in 1952, at an unknown time, Jack Peterson reported encountering a small humanoid figure that had emerged from a cone shaped device, which had apparently emerged from the depths of the earth. After the small humanoid re-entered the craft it disappeared into the earth again.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Shavertron #14.

Points to consider:

In the USA in the Forties, editor Ray Palmer published a science-Fiction magazine, "Amazing Stories." The magazine was in theory a "fiction" magazine, but in 1943 Palmer received a letter from a reader of Barto, Pennsylvania and allegedly coming of the town of Atlantis, capital of Lemuria aka Mu, a lost continent under the floods. This reader in fact elaborated starting from books duch as the 1904 book by William Scott-Elliot, "The Story of Atlantis and The Lost Lemuria."

The letter came from a certain Richard Shaver, had an original alphabet, rebuses, symbols. Palmer printed this alphabet in the January 1944 issue of his magazine, and started to correspond regularly with Shaver, asking for "more material."

Richard Shaver was in fact an untrustworthy lunatic which had problems with law enforcement. Palmer and Shaver took this material together in a 1945 short novel, "I remember Lemuria," and readers of the magazine, the majority being teenagers avid of mysteries, started to think that it was non-fiction. Some readers started to write to the magazine, to testify that they are themselves in contact with the descendant of the Lemurians which had left our planet a long time ago but returned to visit us on board the flying saucers about which one started to speak at that time.

Richard Shaver in his workshop. All around him, his paintings of which he tells that they are painted in undergrounds tunnels leading to the mysterious world of the Deros.


Others claimed to be reincarnated Lemurians. More material was written, in which "malicious" Lemurians became robots, the "Deros", enemies of mankind living underground while the "good" Lemurians who had escaped to other planets came back as the friends of mankind, returning to save us from the malevolent influence of the evil Deros, etc.

Of course, Shaver and Palmer received by mail "testimonies" of people who claimed to have seen or met of the "Deros" and other "Lemurians", and such is the nature of this alleged encounter, found in the "Shavertron" fanzine in the 1980's, which credibility is obviously null.
