reviewers are saying about the Jur series …
There in the ancient heart of Africa, the oxygen she
breathes is pure, the water clear and sweet. And the flowering plants are
massive, loaded down with flavorful fruits. Towering trees, the likes of which
she’s never seen, grow unhindered towards the sky, surrounded by plains of
grass as far as eye can see. The only living creatures she encounters at first
are those of the Jurassic Period, long extinct for eons of time. She is alone,
perhaps the only human alive. She calls this ancient time and place Jur.

entertaining and well-written novel brings back those good old days and is a
fine example of the action/adventure genre.
D. Peter Ogden, publisher of ERBania
This is a pulp fiction type story about a man and woman’s
involuntary journey one hundred eighty million years into the past, the
exciting discoveries they make, and the danger and weirdness they literally run

pure action adventure of the science fiction kind. And I loved it.

I thought this type of story had died with Lin Carter and
Robert Moore Williams who were among the best who wrote in the Edgar Rice
Burroughs style. This work truly captures the flavor of the Pellucidar novels
and has touches of John Carter and Carson Napier in their devotion to their
mates and their heroic nature to fight for their beliefs against the strangest

enjoyable read from front to back cover. The Prolog and Epilog alone are most

The Imagery Tom Johnson creates in the reader’s mind comes
to life under his talented pen. Several times I was reminded of going to the
Saturday matinee as a young girl and watching the different serials they showed
in weekly installments. I would thump on my chair, whining and crying because
they always cut the segments off with a cliffhanger, which most certainly
guaranteed my return the next week to see if the hero or heroine could be saved
from impending disaster. This is exactly how I feel while reading this author’s
stories. He knows precisely when to cut you off, guaranteeing you’ll be back
for more. If you are a fan of stories like Treasure Island, The Phantom, Tarzan,
and the great classics, you’ll truly enjoy the Jur series.

has proved almost hypnotic in its unyielding suspense, which will keep you
reading until the wee hours of the morning. You will not forget the land of Jur
or any of the people you meet there.

Jur takes us back to those days of lost civilizations,
ancient evil, hidden portals, sub-human tribes, and monsters in the night.
Whether you read it on the beach or in front of a roaring fire – it will
transport you …

this I found myself comparing this to The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle. And
I noted that the writer said he was somewhat inspired by the works of Edgar
Land of Jur is definitely written in an older style. The cast is kept very
small and the tale is told from the viewpoint of one of the two characters from
Earth trapped in this mystery world from the past.
in this story is groundbreaking. But it was well written, well paced and a
pleasant reminder of a time when writers wrote stories to amaze and entertain.
There is none of the emotional angst that seems to populate recent popular
fiction. Instead you have a fun story with two lovers fighting to find a way
home after getting lost in a prehistoric world.
This story impressed me. I'd love
to find more stories in this style. Too few authors appear to remember that the
first duty of the writer is to entertain. This story was an exception and
entertainment definitely came first
