Drome. Drome was created by John Martin Leahy and appeared in the story serial “Drome” (Weird Tales, Jan-May 1927).

Drome is a city inhabited by a Lost Race descended from Greeks. It is in a vast series of caverns beneath Mt. Rainier, and is occupied by a civilization with Classical culture and values and is ruled over by a good queen. In the caverns between Drome and the surface world are a variety of hostile creatures, including bat-winged apes, cat-lizards, octopus-tentacled trees, giant snakes, and so on. Drome is visited by a pair of white men from the surface world, and they are responsible for the eventual death of an evil high priest and then the marriage of the queen.
