Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Dinosaur fans should enjoy this all-reprint anthology of 14 SF yarns that feature or at least include the prehistoric beasts. Greenberg tosses in some old chestnuts, like Isaac Asimov's "Day of the Hunters" and Arthur C. Clarke's "Time's Arrow," both dating from 1950, but he also adds a couple of very recent tales, which employ dinos only tangentially. These are Kristine Kathryn Rusch's 1993 "Chameleon," concerning a young witch who learns how to live while being different from others, and Pat Cadigan's 1994 "Dino Trend," which dwells on the compromises that make and break relationships. Many of the stories deal with time travel and its paradoxes, and the collection as a whole offers an informative look at how our understanding of dinos has changed over the decades. Ranging from the poetic (Howard Waldrop's 1982 "Green Brother") to the action-packed (L. Sprague de Camp's 1956 classic, "A Gun for Dinosaur"), these stories show quite well that dinosaurs romped through a lot of fiction long before Crichton began dreaming of that notorious park.

From Booklist

Some of these stories are classics: Bradbury's "Fog Horn," de Camp's "Gun for a Dinosaur," and Bryant's "Strata," for instance. Others by Pat Cadigan, Howard Waldrop, Kristine Katherine Rusch, and so forth, though less known, are well-told tales calculated to rouse the interest of any dinosaur fan. Some are old enough that their scientific background is not up-to-date, but all score high in sheer readability. Saurophiles are legion today--just look at Michael Crichton's bank balance--and should be catered to. Any library can provide for them economically with this volume that pulls together stories otherwise scattered in a dozen anthologies, some of them out of print.
