Here’s another Edgar Rice Burroughs novel that I hadn’t heard of prior to its release on LibriVox. For fans like me who are daunted by the prospect of trundling through one of the many series books by Burroughs this is a good place to start as this is a standalone novel. First published in the February 1916 issue of “All Around Magazine.”
The Lost Continent

Originally published under the title Beyond Thirty. The novel, set in the year 2137, was heavily influenced by the events of World War I. In the future world depicted in the novel, Europe has descended into barbarism while an isolationist Western Hemisphere remains sheltered from the destruction. The title Beyond Thirty refers to the degree of longitude that inhabitants of the Western Hemisphere are forbidden to pass.
