THE LOST WORLD was Professor Challenger's first adventure for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Ned Malone narrates the story (aka Dr. Watson). Ned's just been jilted by his lady love, Gladys, so he's up for a new adventure. Still, it takes Prof. Challenger some doing to convince the young man to go along - including a bit of fisticuffs! The story is a far departure from the Sherlock Holmes series - even in genre! This is Science Fiction. True science fiction, as it was designed by the likes of H.G. Wells! The Professor takes Mr. Malone - and others in the zoological field he's been able to cajole into joining the team - on a fantastic excursion to the forested mountains of South America! And thanks to Ned Malone, we're privy to the greatest adventure of all times! There are disaurs, ape-men, and danger at every turn! This is THE ORIGINAL Lost World! Jurassic Park has thing on this story save special effects! If you're a True Fan of sci-fi, then it's time to get to kw Professor Challenger! Come along for the most exciting read you've ever enjoyed!
