Overview

It is the year 2137...

The world has been divided into the western hemisphere and the forbidden lands of the eastern hemisphere.

No one knows better than Jefferson Turck, a lieutenant in the Pan-American Navy, that entering the eastern hemisphere is against the law.

However, during a terrible storm at sea, Turck is forced to take refuge in a land located within the forbidden zone. In this alternative view of world history, Europe has been isolated from the rest of the world for over two centuries and has spiraled down into primitive barbarism.

Turck is shocked by the unforgiving lands he finds himself in, and by the fearsome beasts that inhabit them.

This is the story of Turck's adventures in the land that was all but lost to the world.

Meet the Author

Edgar Rice Burroughs was born in Chicago in 1875. He took inspiration for many of his stories from the classical mythology and literature he studied in his youth, and from the time he spent at an Idaho ranch set up by his brothers.
The story goes that, while proof reading an advertisement for pencil sharpeners in a pulp magazine, inspiration struck. Looking through various magazines, with their tall tales of adventure, he was motivated to write a fantasy story himself. A Princess of Mars appeared as a novel in 1912, and his career as a professional writer took off. Another phenomenally successful novel was Tarzan of the Apes, published in 1914. The character Tarzan went on to become a legend in his own right. He died on March 19, 1950, having written well over 50 novels.
