Lost City of Z

Presently running on Netflix is the film many of us waited for, the story of Col Percy Fawcett. I took the opportunity to see it earlier this year and was not as disappointed as I expected I would be, considering that the book of the title takes the anthropological cop-out. Yes, I am among those who are convinced that Fawcett found something more substantial than a native village, however complex that village may be. And no offense to the native cultures but they simply are not the answer to the inconveniently complex and advanced ruins found around the world. So you can imagine how I was braced for the 'social science' ending we were sure to be subjected to and how pleasantly surprised I was that the film does not force the issue. I won't spoil details but the ending neither insists Fawcett's fate involved a hidden native village complex nor attempt to depict his lost city of ancient advanced technology. I'm OK with the ending because the rest of the film is an engaging enough cinematic depiction of Fawcett's story which, frankly, is long overdue.

Readers of my nonfiction will be familiar with my book Secret Missions 2: The Lost Expedition of Sir Richard Francis Burton in which I argue -- and present evidence -- that Fawcett's search for 'Z' was a direct result of the eponymous Burton expedition in South America in the 1860s.  I even present the very likely full name of Fawcett's lost city he referred to as only 'Z'. You can purchase my book at LuLu.com, if you're interested. But if you're not familiar with Fawcett's story, I recommend you find a copy of Lost Trails, Lost Cities (aka Expedition Fawcett) edited by Brian Fawcett from his father's own journals and accounts before disappearing in the Mato Grosso. I also recommend watching this film.

With Fawcett finally introduced dramatically to film audiences maybe next we'll see a great adventure movie depicting Fawcett's post-disappearance exploits according to the legend.

Announcement Regarding LCL Publishing

Hey adventure fans,

Due to complete assholes who prefer to steal books and post them online, Lost Continent Library will not be releasing anything on Amazon Kindle for the foreseeable future. I made the digital books available as cheaply as possible -- 99 cents! -- yet, still, unscrupulous readers feel the need to post them as free PDFs. Therefore, future releases will be available only as print-on-demand editions and soon in audiobooks. I would like to thank the majority of LCL readers who support my efforts as a micropress publisher who relies on the small income made from these books. The thieves haven't hurt a big house, they've screwed a small guy. Something I'm sure they find amusing.

I sincerely appreciate all the loyal LCL followers who respect author rights -- which I know is the large majority of LCL readers.

You can purchase discount printed editions of LCL fiction at this link: Lost Continent Library POD.

And look for some new pulp novels coming this summer!

Fiction Update

Hey all,

I've been working hard on nonfiction and the promotional work that goes with it -- but the new pulp will be out very soon (Rakshasa Runout) and followed by a few more new pulp novels. I need a break from the nonfiction for a few months. And I've earned it!

South America WEXpedition 2017!

I went on the 2003 WEX Club Peru trip and it was one of the best experiences of my life. I wrote much of my novel Secret of the Amazon Queen while in Lima an extra week! If you can swing this at the last minute, it's worth it...
