Again a feeble attempt at personifying the aspirations of dino
evolution. Sawyer makes a sad example of writers using dinosaurs as a
catalyst for their wierd ideas. Why not use aliens or something? Might
as well, the surroundings flooding the dinosaur cultures in Sawyer's book
don't really need to contain dino data. I think it's about time someone
writes about dinosaurs in a realistic fantasy, not an excuse for shelfspace.
