Pellucidar is a 1915 fantasy novel by American writer Edgar Rice Burroughs, the second in his series about the fictional "Hollow Earth" land of Pellucidar. It first appeared as a five-part serial in All-Story Weekly from May 1 to 29, 1915. It was first published in book form in hardcover by A. C. McClurg in September, 1923. A map by Burroughs of the Empire of Pellucidar accompanied both the magazine and book versions.

David Innes and his captive, a member of the reptilian Mahar master race of the interior world of Pellucidar, return from the surface world in the Iron Mole invented by his friend and companion in adventure Abner Perry.

Emerging in Pellucidar at an unknown location, David frees his captive. He names the place Greenwich and uses the technology he has brought to begin the systematic exploration and mapping of the unknown land while searching for his lost companions, Abner, Ghak, and Dian the Beautiful. He soon encounters and befriends a new ally, Ja the Mezop of the island country of Anoroc; later he finds Abner, from whom he learns that in his absence the human revolt against the Mahars has not been going well.

In a parlay with the Mahars David bargains for information of his love Dian and his enemy Hooja the Sly One, which his foes agree to supply in return for the book containing the Great Secret of Mahar reproduction that David stole and hid in the previous novel. David undertakes to recover it, only to find that Hooja has been there before him and claimed Dian as his own reward of the Mahars!

Now he has to track down and defeat the sly one before resuming the human war of independence. Ultimately this is accomplished, and with the aid of the resources David has brought from the surface world he and Abner succeed in building a confederacy of human tribes into an "Empire of Pellucidar" that wipes out the Mahar cities and establishes a new human civilization in their place.

    (Chicago 1875 - Encino, California, 1950) scrittore statunitense. Dopo anni di vagabondaggio, durante i quali fu soldato, cow boy, cercatore d’oro, imprenditore senza fortuna, acquistò grandissima popolarità con la pubblicazione di Tarzan delle scimmie (Tarzan of the apes, 1914), primo di una serie di romanzi che furono tradotti in cinquantasei lingue e ripresi dal cinema e dai fumetti. Il personaggio di Tarzan - aristocratico di origine e «selvaggio» per educazione, dominatore dei codici del mondo animale - ha conquistato l’immaginazione di milioni di lettori, creandosi uno spazio nella mitologia contemporanea. Un altro, meno noto, ciclo di romanzi di B. è quello fantascientifico, con storie ambientate su Marte e su Venere. Approfondisci
