'Suddenly out of the darkness, out of the night, there swooped something with a swish like an aeroplane. The whole group of us were covered for an instant by a canopy of leathery wings, and I had a momentary vision of a long, snake-like neck, a fierce, red, greedy eye, and a great snapping beak, filled, to my amazement, with little, gleaming teeth.' Desperate for adventure, journalist Ed Malone joins a scientific expedition to the South American jungle led by the larger than life figure of Professor Challenger. But you should be careful what you wish for. After climbing to the summit of a mysterious plateau in the Amazon rainforest the explorers find themselves trapped in a world lost in time, inhabited by carnivorous dinosaurs, giant fish-lizards and murderous ape-men. Arthur Conan Doyle's thrilling tale of adventure and crypto-zoology became a template for an industry of creature features that came in its wake. Today, Hollywood depends on the massive success of its superhero. Science fiction, and action and adventure franchises. But before JURASSIC PARK there was THE LOST WORLD. In this stunning new edition, illustrated by legendary comic book artist, Bryan Hitch, the original book's widescreen, cinematic vision is celebrated.

From the Publisher:

In this fully dramatized, live performance of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic, The Lost World, Leonard Nimoy, John de Lancie, and cast members from Star Trek® feature films and all four TV series take you on an incredible journey.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic adventure follows a scientific expedition deep into the Amazon jungle -- and back in time. Cut off from the outside world on a primeval plateau, they discover a place where dinosaurs have evolved beside ape-men and the fate of the human race hangs in the balance.

Featuring virtuoso performances from the entire cast, riveting sound effects, original music, and audience participation, Alien Voices' live production of The Lost World is an adventure in sound.

From the Inside Flap:

In The Lost World, the first in a series of books to feature the bold Professor Challenger?a character many critics consider one of the most finely drawn in science fiction?Challenger and his party embark on an expedition to a remote Amazonian plateau where, as the good professor puts it, ?the ordinary laws of Nature are suspended? and numerous prehistoric creatures and ape-men have survived. ?Just as Sherlock Holmes set the standard?and in some sense established the formula?for the detective story . . . , so too has The Lost World set the standard and the formula for fantasy-adventure stories . . . ,? Michael Crichton writes in his Introduction. ?The tone and techniques that Conan Doyle first refined in The Lost World have become standard narrative procedures in popular entertainment of the present day.?
