The true strength of a story lies in its characters and in both the ties that bind them together and the events that drive them apart

The true strength of a story lies in its characters and in both the ties that bind them together and the events that drive them apart. Perhaps the most famous example of this in fantasy is The Fellowship of The Ring.

Listen to books in audio format. Fantasy, whether classic or contemporary, has always been based on the conflict between the forces of Light and Darkness. Now some of the genre's most inventive authors bring readers into the Seelie Court, where all serve the Queen of Air and Light, and the Unseelie Court, where the forces of Darkness hold sway. To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of his creation, fifteen of today’s greatest writers of fantastic fiction have joined together to take you inside his world of shadows and fear in all-new tales of mystery, humor, horror, and the supernatural.

I’m not sure why I bought Dinosaur Fantastic – perhaps some temporary paleontological enthusiasm (I’m more interested in straight geology).
I was expecting, frankly, a lot of time travel stories and dino resurrection stories a la Jurassic Park, and there are certainly stories in that category. But a surprisingly number aren’t either, and that led to a relatively rich theme anthology.

However, if I would have thought about it for a bit, I should have realized how many metaphorical and symbolic uses our culture puts dinosaurs to.

Capitol punishment via mind transference to the Jurassic is the idea behind Robert J. Sawyer’s “Just Like Old Times”.

Time travelers introducing dinosaurs to Ancient Rome is only the beginning of a sort of wacky alternate history in Robert Sheckley’s “Disquisitions on the Dinosaurs”.

Gregory Feeley’s “Ways of Looking at a Dinosaur” surprised me. Normally, I’m not keen on metafiction and Feeley’s piece is that. It combines rumination on the symbolism of dinosaurs while spinning off several mini stories on the theme. However, it was one of my favorite pieces. However, it gets points taken off for the mealy mouth piece of pc rhetoric of “… the nineteenth century discovered that the Earth was hundreds of millions of years old”. No, it wasn’t “the nineteenth century”. It was European scientists.

Sure you know where Frank M. Robinson’s “The Great Dying” is going with its contemporary research into the possibility of a dinosaur plague, but it’s a sure-footed and enjoyable journey.

Bill Fawcett’s “After the Comet” is exactly what you would expect, but I enjoyed it, and it reminded me of the old writer of animal tales, Frank Seaton.
The speculation that St. Columba encountered the Loch Ness monster is the idea behind Laura Resnick’s “Curren’s Song”. Another story with particular historical resonance, for a 1993 anthology, is Jack Nimersheim’s “The Pangaean Principle” with is ex-Soviet scientist hero and ruminations on vanished worlds geological and national.

Nicholas A. DiChario’s “Whilst Slept the Sauropod” is a fable like story of an isolated island with its own dinosaur.

David Gerrold’s “Rex” is a nasty combination of domestic troubles and household dinosaurs – miniaturized T-Rexes to be specific.

And anyone with a fondness for conspiracy theories will love Roger MacBride Allen’s “Evolving Conspiracy”. Chock full of conspiracy theories, the one it’s most concerned with is the very grand and very encompassing evolutionist-Communist conspiracy.

An lucid indication that a literary anthology is proving compelling reading is the vigorous twirling of the sundry wayward whiskers dangling dangerously from my scruffy countenance. "Dinosaur Fantastic" provoked such behavior as an noteworthy ensnaring of dinosaur tales. A+ tales include: "Cutting Down Fred" which features a limerick-reciting tree borne of an acorn/contraceptive fusion; "Rex", the story of a harried and henpecked husband's battle with the household carnivore; "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Dinosaur", part non-fiction and part speculation of future dino-story themes; "Just Like Old Times", with a homicidal Canadian physician being sentenced to imprisonment within the confines of a T-Rex's mind; "Dino Trend", a hearty and incisive stab at the trendcrazies that corrupt our culture. On the flip side, a trio of duds: "After the Comet" utilizes an omnipotent observer to account a herd of triceratops seeking sustainance, but this voice is obnoxious like a narrator from those Walt Disney nature shows from the 1950's; "On Tiptoe" showed promise--blurred images in a photographer's pix may be dinosaurs living on the fringe--but concludes without appeal, satisfaction, or style; "The Skull's Tale" also dazzled initially but lost its lustre by the second page. Don't let the 3 unwise inclusions prevent you from the acquisition of an otherwise stalwart entry into the dino-fiction universe.

Dinosaur fantasic was overlong and some of the stories had little to do with dinosaurs.And a few that did were ones that had been put into every other collection of dinosaur stories.So I had to reread a lot of ones that I had already read.Very dull reading
