Innes, David. David Innes was created by Edgar Rice Burroughs (John Carter, Carson Napier, Shoz-Dijiji, Tarzan (I)) and appeared in seven stories and seven novels and short story collections from 1914 to 1963, beginning with “At the Earth’s Core” (All-Story Weekly, Apr. 4, 1914).

Brave American miner David Innes and his inventor friend Abner Perry descend into the depths of the Earth in Perry’s “Iron Mole,” a giant cylindrical drilling machine. The Iron Mole drills through 250 miles of Earth and breaks through into the subterranean world of Pellucidar, which is perpetually in daylight and is inhabited by dinosaurs, cavemen, and other strange flora and fauna. Innes and Perry have a variety of adventures there, from violent encounters with the Sagoth gorilla-men to war with reptile-men. In Tarzan at the Earth’s Core (1930) Innes meets Tarzan (I).
