icecap epic. 3 The Lost World, in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's rampaging dinosaur epic (they were led by Professor Challenger). 4 Mad Worlds - Middleton wrote A Mad World, My Masters; "Mad World" was Tears for Fears' first hit; and Stanley Kramer's It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963) managed to bang together almost every comedy star in America without sparking a laugh. 5 In Sophie's World, the bestseller by Jostein Gaarder. 6 The Acceptance World, in Anthony Powell's sequence A Dance to the Music of Time.
