Friendly PSA from our facebook fan Rick Barry:
On this day in 1917, ERB completed “The Lost U-Boat,” a novelette which became “The Land That Time Forgot,” part one of the Caspak trilogy. Today we are going to look at some illustrations inspired by the story.
Our final illustration is from the February, 1927 issue of “Amazing Stories,” which published the entire Caspak trilogy in three issues. This is Frank R. Paul’s illustration of a scene from Chapter 6, along with the associated excerpt from the text.
Thanks for the reminder, Rick!
Edgar Rice Burroughs Fan reminds us that:
On this day in 1917, ERB began work on ‘The Lost U-Boat,’ a story which became THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT. He completed it in about five weeks, and it was the first installment of his intended Caspak trilogy.
In 1918, ‘Blue Book Magazine’ editor Ray Long was responsible for renaming Burroughs’ novella THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT.
