Overview

Burroughs classic series with an active table of contents. Caspak is described as a land mass near Antarctica. The island is ringed by high cliffs, making it inaccessible to all but the most intrepid explorers. It has a tropical river teeming with primitive creatures extinct elsewhere and a thermal inland sea, essentially a huge crater lake.

Burroughs creates an unique biological system for his lost world, in which the slow progress of evolution in the world outside is recapitulated as a matter of individual metamorphosis.

Caspak is featured in several films, including 1975 and 1977 Amicus Productions' adaptations of The Land That Time Forgot and The People That Time Forgot, and in the 2009 Asylum adaptation of The Land That Time Forgot, although the Asylum version re-imagines the island as existing within the Bermuda Triangle.

    Best of Burroughs science fiction

    The Caspak "series" was previously pulished as the novel "The Land That Time Forgot", a fix-up of three long stories with different narrators. In the big1960s Burroughs revival, the three parts were published separately in their original magazine texts (the first on including a very brief framing story about Burroughs in Greenland discovering the manuscript in a thermos), and now the three stories return as a "series," or "trilogy" in some other ebook editions.

    Edgar Rice Burroughs was generally a wonderfully entertaining adventure writer with fantastic elements in many of his stories, but rarely does one find an original science fiction premise. These stories present an exception. As usual there are intrepid adventurers traveling through exotic dangers with beautiful women, here on a lost continent somewhere in the Antarctic (discovered by an American captaining a U-boat captured from villainous WWI Germans) plentifully supplied with dinosaurs and other menaces. The nature of this peculiar ecosystem is the surprise, and I won't spoil it. Burroughs as science fiction writer doesn't get any better than this.

    As noted, there are several ebook editions available. This one, the cheapest, seems perfectly adequate to me.
