Inhaltsangabe: From Edgar Rice Burroughs, the creator of the famous Tarzan series, comes a riveting tale set in an island stuck in Earth's evolutionary past. In the midst of the confusion of World War I, sailors from opposite sides of the conflict find themselves trapped in a place that seem to have forgotten to evolve with the rest of the world. They must learn to work together to survive in this harsh tropical environment, where creatures previously thought extinct and bands of primitive humanoid tribes roam the wild. As the survivors explore and go on adventures, will they learn the secrets of the island of Caspak? Will they eventually find their way back to civilization, or will they have to settle down in this mysterious land? Will somebody else discover the island, and perhaps mount a rescue? The Land That Time Forgot is the first part of the Caspak trilogy: The Land That Time Forgot, The People That Time Forgot and Out of Time's Abyss.
Review: Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) was a prodigiously productive writer of pulp fictions--literary entertainments, that is, published in inexpensive, easily obtained periodicals. His style was simple and instantly accessible, his stories riveting if often implausible tales of adventure, and of good overcoming evil. Burroughs wasn't much of an artist. But, as Mike Resnick writes in his introduction to this commemorative edition of Burroughs's immensely popular trilogy The Land That Time Forgot, first published in 1924, almost every book Burroughs wrote remains in print, and countless readers turn to his Mars and Tarzan novels every day.
In Land, Burroughs concocts a fabulous microworld, located somewhere in the South Pacific, called Caspak. On this mountainous island live winged, humanlike creatures, dinosaurs, ferocious beasts of prey, Neanderthals, "wild ape-men," and monstrous reptiles; they terrorize each other, to say nothing of the mixed crew of World War I-era adventurers who inadvertently land on a Caspakian beach and fight their way across the island, dining on Plesiosaurus steaks and having a grand old time in the company of a jungle princess. The story streaks onward like a bullet toward its surprise ending, and it's pure fun all the way. --Gregory McNamee
