Professor Challenger has mostly played second fiddle to Holmes in the Conan Doyle canon, but in THE KEW GROWTHS AND OTHER STORIES the larger-than life adventurer takes center stage. In these tales you’ll find him investigating lost worlds, delving into deep and dangerous places, and facing creatures long thought lost in legend.
Follow Challenger as, with the help of his long-time companion, journalist Edward Malone, and some aid from Carnacki and John Logie Baird, he saves London from menace, tracks down ape-men, and visits a high plateau in Montana where time has stood still.
