Book Description


When the Century Club is called in to prevent the assassination of FDR, it’s just another day on the job—but what they discover puts not just the President, but the entire world in jeopardy.

With psychic dinosaurs taking over Manhattan and beyond, it’s up to Sally Slick, Jet Black, Mack Silver, and the other Centurions to save humanity—from extinction!

Spirit of the Century™ Presents: DINOCALYPSE NOW. A novel by Chuck Wendig.

“A fun pulp-style romp. Wish I’d thought of it first!"
— Brian Clevinger, author of Atomic Robo

“Thrills! Chills! Stalwart heroes! Mad geniuses! A Conqueror Ape! And a whole lotta dinosaurs! Chuck Wendig’s Dinocalypse Now takes on the Golden Age of pulps and beats it at its own game.”
— Stephen Blackmoore, author of City of the Lost

5.0 out of 5 stars Page-turning pulp action! May 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Do you hate books that take a chapter or two to gain some speed? If so, you'll like Dinocalypse Now. The cover is how the book starts -- a dinosaur invasion. DN starts at ramming speed and doesn't slow down. Two-fisted heroes, dinosaurs, and more all deliver action that's worth every penny.

This book is a wild ride. From the first page up until the very end, the action is gripping and non-stop. The story pulls you in, carries you along, and threatens at numerous points to throw your emotions into a meat grinder, so often are the characters on the brink of disaster.

But that's the way pulp novels are supposed to be, and Dinocalypse Now delivers in spades. I could not put it down, and am eagerly awaiting the next installment in the trilogy.

My only complaint? Having to wait for the next book to come out. The ending is a cliffhanger and oh man, is it a doozy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rip-Roaring, Fist-Pounding Pulp Adventure! May 20, 2012
By Denis
Format:Kindle Edition
Role-playing publisher Evil Hat's first outing into novels is a stunning start to what looks to be a beautiful new relationship! The first in a trilogy, and also the first of a series of seven novels based in the universe of the Spirit of the Century role-playing game, Dinocalypse Now features a cast of daring heroes and wonderfully imaginative and realized villains.

The writing is slick and evocative of the pulp era of Burroughs or Howard, and author Chuck Wendig (Blackbirds) proves to be equally at home writing pulse-pounding action and quiet (and not-so-quiet!) character moments.

Dinocalypse Now is a great read for fans of the pulp era of action and adventure, featuring the classic pulp tropes of dinosaurs, apes, jet-packs, portals and lost civilizations! A true page-turner from start to finish.

Dinocalypse Now is a grand return to the style of Pulp Adventure. Silly, impossible, scientifically questionable, all true, but none of it matters. It is fun, witty, clever and packed with action, adventure and even a little bit of romance.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who is into light hearted action and adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two-Fisted, Page Turning Adventure! May 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Dinocalypse Now by Chuck Wendig is an excellent pulp novel. The first part of a trilogy that is rife with interesting characters, interesting locations and amazing adventure. If you enjoy over the top adventure this book is for you. If you enjoy intelligent Gorilla's that happen to be professors, this book is for you. If you like the idea of a psychic dinosaur invasion, this book is for you.

It is a quick and fun read. Just like it should be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pulpy, over-the-top fabulous fun! May 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
If you take your sci-fi seriously then this book is not for you. But if you yearn for the marvelous pulp stories of yesteryear then pick this book up now. I had an amazing time reading this book.

Based on the characters and institutions established in the Evil Hat role playing game "Spirit of the Century" this book is a non-stop roller-coaster ride filled with over the top heroes and ridiculous villains that you can't wait to read more about. The Conqueror Ape? Psychosaurs? Pterodactyls in NYC? Yes! And MORE!
