Science Fiction Discussion Group: The Land That Time Forgot by E. R. Burroughs – CANCELED

March 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Title: The Land That Time Forgot (1924)

Author: Edgar Rice Burroughs

Description: Bowen Tyler and his crew find themselves marooned in a nightmare world of mighty dinosaurs and bestial apemen who kill on sight. This is the lost continent of Caspak, a hot, dark and mysterious prehistoric world located somewhere in the icy waters of the Antarctic. Their only hope of rescue is a note in a bottle flung into the sea. The survivors persist and penetrate the heart of Caspak to find the incredible secret that claws, fangs and spears have guarded since the beginning of time.

About the Author: Imaginative and prolific, Edgar Rice Burroughs bridged from Victorian Era adventure/fantasy into modern science fiction. His work is action-packed yet descriptive and world-building whether among African apes, Martian tribes, or inside the Earth. Typically, a powerful male hero with resourceful survival skills must adventure through primitive conditions and fight vicious beasts to win acceptance and reward. Dramatic, sometimes menacing or romantic, in tone; engaging, sometimes gritty or lyrical, in style; Burroughs always delivers an enthralling narrative. 

Information about the book and author was taken from the database NoveList.
