Overview

The Poison Belt by Arthur Conan Doyle

Professor Challenger sends telegrams asking his three companions from The Lost World - Edward Malone, Lord John Roxton, and Professor Summerlee - to join him at his home outside of London and to bring a tank of oxygen. When they arrive, they are ushered into a sealed room, along with Challenger and his wife. In the course of his research, Challenger has predicted that the Earth is about to come into contact with a belt of poisonous ether, which will cause the end of humanity. Can they survive? "The Poison Belt" is the second story in the Professor Challenger series. Written in 1913, roughly a year before the outbreak of World War I, "The Poison Belt" would be the last story written about Challenger until the 1920s.

A curious tale, not as exciting as Lost World yet, interesting and thought provoking.
