From Library Journal
Since first appearing in All-Story Weekly magazine in 1914, Burroughs's tale of a secret prehistoric world still in existence has remained popular both in print and as fodder for numerous films. This commemorative edition offers the full text along with a map of the fictional land of Pellucidar, illustrations, a glossary, and both a new introduction and an afterword on the science used in the story. This may be a little corny by today's standards, but it's still fun.

Books of fantastic adventure were much beloved in early twentieth-century America, and no writer rode the crest more effectively than Edgar Rice Burroughs, creator of the Tarzan and the Princess of Mars series, among others. His books, with many million sold, are gradually entering the public domain. Indeed, free downloads of them can be found at several Web sites. The two books featured here begin the seven-volume saga of David Innes and his exploration of the savage inner side of our supposedly hollow earth. An eternal noonday sun illumines a land of huge and ravenous beasts, many prehistoric; fierce humans; and other intelligent life-forms. Patrick Lawlor is good with characterization. Especially good at bringing excitement into his youthful-sounding voice, he makes the listener want to keep listening.

When Abner Perry invents a vehicle that essentially drills through the earth, he takes it to his good friend (and independently wealthy man about town) David Ennis. And what else can they do? Drill down into the earth, of course. What they find there isn't what we'd expect: it's an inner world called Pellicidar, a place where the sun neither sets nor rises -- because what appears to be the sun is no sun at all, but the molten core of the earth. Pellucidar is a great fun fantasy world, full of dragons, apes, and reptiles and Weird Things. It's ruled by sorcerous royalty (the princess falls in love with Our Hero, of course) and of course our heros end up hip-deep in dragons. . . .
