This latest collection from renowned science fiction author Michael Swanwick contains 15 short-short stories on dinosaur themes. These dinosaurs are steely bureaucrats, genetically engineered Christmas toys, and beloved killer pets, clashing with immoral scientists, neighbourhood bullies, and society ladies with dangerous, sometimes moving, and wickedly funny consequences.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Swanwick has written a short-short story for each of the 13 dinosaurs from the Mesozoic era.... The stories are very funny, often ironic, and well worth the very brief time they take to read. Highlights include 'The Thief of Time, ' which ironically plays with the different meanings of the egg-stealing Eoraptor; the hilarious 'A Matter of Size, ' which gives an unexpected look at how the Giantosaurus of South America may have regarded its North American cousins; 'Three Conversations, ' which gives a sting-in-the-tale ending to a short adventure in kite-flying; 'Pocket Brontosaurs, ' where Swanwick shows that Michael Crichton and Steven Spielberg may have missed the real commercial appeal of bringing dinosaurs back to life; and the darkly funny 'Herbivores, ' which you should read for yourself. All are worth seeking out...."
