Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) was a legendarily prolific American author, writing over eighty books in thirty-six years. While best known as the creator of Tarzan of the Apes and John Carter of Mars, his Caspak trilogy, first serialized in 1918, is widely considered his most imaginative. Beginning with the propulsive The Land That Time Forgot, the recovery of a manuscript along the coast of Greenland chronicles the exploits of Bowen J. Tyler and Lys La Rue, who, together with other survivors of ships torpedoed in the English Channel, commandeer the German U-boat responsible for the carnage only for saboteurs to send them drifting into Antarctic waters where they're drawn magnetically to the mysterious and uncharted island of Caprona. There, far greater dangers than the mutinous German crew will threaten their survival, and the island's ecosystem will defy everything they thought they knew about science and evolution.

Review quote

"Burroughs is probably the most influential writer in the entire history of the world." -Ray Bradbury

"Perhaps the most imaginative single novel Burroughs ever wrote is the one you are holding in your hands right now: The Land That Time Forgot." -Mike Resnick

" . . . considered the most noteworthy of Burroughs' singles. The novel, one of the author's longest, was written in the fiercely chauvinistic atmosphere of WWI but contains sheer, headlong adventure that is unusual even for an ERB thriller." -Floyd C. Gale, Galaxy Science Fiction

"For downright originality and exciting interest, The Land That Time Forgot is hard to equal. There is hardly a page that does not hold your interest . . . Burroughs has such a tremendous imagination." -Amazing Stories

" . . . The Land That Time Forgot, regarded by many as Edgar Rice Burroughs' finest imaginative work." -Fantasy: The 100 Best Books

"Among the best of Burroughs' non series titles . . . Written during the early months of America's involvement in World War I-and fueled by Burroughs' strong anti-German prejudices . . . His fertile imagination inspired such award-winning writers as Ray Bradbury, among others." -Marie J. MacNee, Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Writers

"Many readers consider Burroughs' best novel to be The Land That Time Forgot . . . The beginning of the story contains echoes of both Poe and Conan Doyle." -Brian W. Aldiss, Billion Year Spree: The True History of Science Fiction
