This original anthology, from the authors and editors who brought you
the Gaslight Sherlock Holmes series, sees Challenger and his stalwart
companions including the reporter Malone, big game hunter Lord John
Roxton and the skeptical colleague Professor Summerlee, travel across
space and witness the ravages of time, narrowly eluding a dinosaur’s
bite only to battle against the invasive red bloom of alien foliage, and
then plunge deep into the mysteries hidden within the Earth and reach
out to the moon and into the heart of the unknown. Strap yourself in
for chills, thrills, and challenges to the unknown in exciting new
worlds and lost places with literature’s foremost scientific adventurer.
"The whole matter is very fully and lucidly discussed in my forthcoming

of the epoch-making books of the world's history."
