May-June Groupread Topics: LOST WORLDS and MOVE ADAPTATIONS

Join us for the May-June 2020 Sword and Sorcery groupreads, with thematic topics:

A) Link to discussion on Lost Worlds, with tour guide moderator Master Ultan
Moderator Master Ultan is ultimately in charge of this as the "tour guide", but it's SE here setting up the folders. From the initial suggestions and book poll, the general idea is to tour a Lost World. Anyway... I'll pass off the "mic" to him....
This includes: Heroes of Atlantis & Lemuria by Manly Wade Wellman and The Magic of Atlantis by Lin Carter... and probably these too: Pellucidar by Edgar Rice Burroughs and Tales of Zothique by Clark Ashton Smith

B) Link to discussion on MOVIE adaptations/novelizations
Any S&S movie adaption, such as the below.
Nominate more! And, of course, feel welcome to discuss the movies too. Rewatch them!
