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."
