Описание: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 and The 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 . Издание на английском языке.
