Format: Paperback
An excellent overview of fantasy and science fiction literature involving dinosaurs, from the very first in the end of the 19th century, to today's thrillers. Many obscure works of fiction are given long-needed attention, and this comprehensive look is a must for anyone interested in dinosaurs and fiction narratives. With the work of the late Michael Crichton and its spinoffs as the codifiers for today's image of dinosaurs, it's a real treat to see these fascinating creatures in the works of a potpourri of science fiction masters.
