The Science Fictional Dinosaur(1982)
An anthology of stories edited by Martin H Greenberg, Robert Silverberg and Charles G Waugh
These great writers of science fiction are brought together in this collection of nine utterly and fascinating dinosaur stories. In each story, humans come face to face with real dinosaurs-in the distant past or the far away future. A pterodactyl saves a sea-mining camp from disaster in Paul Ash's "The Wings of a Bat." Brian Aldiss's urban man of the future takes a time-travel vacation to hunt a brontosaurus in "Poor Little Warrior!" A "human" skeleton is found in a time millions of years before humans existed in Robert F. Young's "When Time Was New." The stories explore some of the greatest mysteries of the ages: Why did the dinosaurs suddenly disappear from the face of the earth? Were they intelligent-more intelligent than humans? What were they really like? In this selection of surprising and ironic stories, discover for yourself the incredible world of the dinosaurs. Once you enter, you may never want to return. Includes a glossary, a geologic time scale, and a reptile classification chart.
