Editorial Review
I could not repress a sigh at the thought of the havoc war had wrought in this part of England, at least. Farther east, nearer London, we should find things very different. There would be the civilization that two centuries must have wrought upon our English cousins as they had upon us. There would be mighty cities, cultivated fields, happy people. There we would be welcomed as long-lost brothers. There would we find a great nation anxious to learn of the world beyond their side of thirty, as I had been anxious to learn of that which lay beyond our side of the dead line. ~ ~ ~ Edgar Rice Burroughs created one of the most iconic figures in American pop culture, Tarzan of the Apes, and it is impossible to overstate his influence on entire genres of popular literature in the decades after his enormously winning pulp novels stormed the public's imagination. The Lost Continent is one of the rarest and least-known of Burrough's thrilling science-fiction adventure stories. Since its first appearance-in the February 1916 issue of All-Around Magazine, under the title "Beyond Thirty"-it has languished in undeserved obscurity. In the year 2137, global civilization has been in decline for nearly two centuries, and war-ruined Europe is but a distant memory, practically a legend, to the isolationist United States. But one intrepid American traveler is about to rediscover the Old World, which has become a startling and savage land in its solitude. American novelist EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS (1875-1950) wrote dozens of adventure, crime, and science fiction novels that are still beloved today, including Tarzan of the Apes (1912), At the Earth's Core (1914), A Princess of Mars (1917), The Land That Time Forgot (1924), and Pirates of Venus (1934). He is reputed to have been reading a comic book when he died.
