The science fiction stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stand alongside those of Jules Verne and H.G.Wells. The protagonist, the "cave-man in a lounge suit", is the maddening, irascible and fascinating Professor George Edward Challenger. Thestories range from The Lost World, a sort of "Jurassic Park", high above the Amazon rain-forest, to the ecologically significant When the World Screamed. Other fine examples of Doyle`s imagination at its best are The Land of Mist andThe Disintegration Machine. This collection is a must for all readers who love science fiction and for those who are interested in the early development of the genre. Текст не адаптированный.
