Re: Dino fiction

The best 'intelligent dinosaur' story I've read, IMHO, is Robert Sawyer's 
Quintaglio trilogy - Far-Seer, Fossil Hunter and Foreigner. Unlike Harry 
Harrison's Eden series, the dinosaurs (dwarf tyrannosaurids with boosted 
intelligence) are the heroes. The series begins with the invention of the 
telescope, and follows the tyrannosaurs' discovery of their origin and 
future, with some wonderful diversions (including a murder mystery and 
chunks of Moby Dick). Highly recommended.
