There's a rather sparse list of "story-related" links, a Quicktime movie of
(parts of) the T-rex's attack on the herd of dinos from JP, and some
excerpts from the story.  According to one of those, Crichton didn't learn
much from his previous visit to JP; he's *still* using electric vehicles,
this time with photovoltaic cells and experimental lithium-ion
battteries--and no backup systems.  (These aren't vehicles left over from
the original story, they are brought to the site by the new scientists.)

Be warned, however, that the *only* way to see any this stuff is with a
browser that supports imagemaps--there are NO text links.  Another good
example of bad Web design, this page even uses Netscape's exclusive (since
it's not part of any standard) "client pull" technology to load images.

If you don't do imagemaps, the most interesting text excerpt can be found
at <http://www.randomhouse.com/site/lostworld/rex.html>, and the movies
(the page suggests there are two movies, but the URLs point to the same
place) are at <http://www.randomhouse.com/site/lostworld/video.html>.
