Caprona (also known as Caspak) is a fictitious island in the literary universe of Edgar Rice Burroughs’s Caspak Trilogy. Described as a land mass near Antarctica, Caprona was first reported by the (fictitious) Italian explorer Caproni in 1721, the location of which was subsequently lost. The island is ringed by high cliffs, making it inaccessible to all but the most intrepid explorers. Other stories in the series include The Land That Time Forgot, The People That Time Forgot, and Out of Time’s Abyss, each of which has been adapted to film.
