Lost Worlds fiction are usually adventures with a grand voyage to some lost world -- an undiscovered island, continent, jungle, race of people. The lost world usually features something extra-ordinary not found back in the normal world like dinosaurs or ancient/advanced technology. The classics of the Lord World genre are usually set on Earth, but as there are no more "lost worlds" to be found on earth, some contemporary authors have opted to move the lost worlds to space instead (some hidden planet or location in space etc).

Jurassic Park

This is not so much a \"discover\" a lost world more as \"reinvent a lost world.\" But some of the Lost World tropes still apply

King Solomon\'s Mines

by Arthur M. "Schlesinger Jr."

From America's most celebrated living historian comes this "sprightly, straightforward account of the first third of an active and charmed life" (New York Times). Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. turns a studied eye on a personal past and reconstructs the history that has made him such an iconic figure for generations of readers. A LIFE IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY offers rare and revealing access to both the private world of a great American writer and the fine-grained texture of the American century.
Ranging from a fondly remembered childhood in the Midwest to a fascinating, storied academic and political life, this volume is an important addition to Schlesinger's body of work, "every bit as well written as anything Schlesinger has done" (Providence Sunday Journal) and "sure to be used by students of the times for years to come" (Boston Globe). "With style and humor and a master historian's deft blending of personal detail with epic events" (Wall Street Journal), Schlesinger evokes the struggles, the questions, the paradoxes, and the triumphs that shaped our era as only he can do.

She

by H. Rider Haggard

On his twenty-fifth birthday, Leo Vincey opens the silver casket that his father has left to him. It contains a letter recounting the legend of a white sorceress who rules an African tribe and of his father's quest to find this remote race. To find out for himself if the story is true, Leo and his companions set sail for Zanzibar. There, he is brought face to face with Ayesha, She-who-must-be-obeyed: dictator, femme fatale, tyrant and beauty. She has been waiting for centuries for the true descendant of Kallikrates, her murdered lover, to arrive, and arrive he does - in an unexpected form. Blending breathtaking adventure with a brooding sense of mystery and menace, "She" is a story of romance, exploration discovery and heroism that has lost none of its power to enthrall.
