A big influence on Michael Crichton's 'Jurassic Park', 'The Lost World' was the first Arthur Conan Doyle novel to introduce the unforgettable Professor Challenger, who leads an expedition to a remote South American plateau to prove that dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures have survived into the modern age.

In this fully dramatized, live performance of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic, The Lost World, Leonard Nimoy, John de Lancie, and cast members from Star Trek® feature films and all four TV series take you on an incredible journey.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic adventure follows a scientific expedition deep into the Amazon jungle -- and back in time. Cut off from the outside world on a primeval plateau, they discover a place where dinosaurs have evolved beside ape-men and the fate of the human race hangs in the balance.
Featuring virtuoso performances from the entire cast, riveting sound effects, original music, and audience participation, Alien Voices' live production of The Lost World is an adventure in sound.From the Inside Flap:
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."
