Re: Stego brain (was Dinosaurs Breathed Like Birds)

Uh, oh. Am I in trouble? In trouble with Dan Varner no less? I'm working on a book of "paleo-poetry", written in the spirit of the best nature poems. But hopefully, and with fine feedback from some of the DML folk and others, we can pull dino-verse out of the mesozoic and into the 21st century. We'll see. Ill keep everyone posted.

I believe one of the poems is going to be in this next month's issue of "Prehistoric Times". Check it out.

Shamelessly plugging,

Now that's not bad! Seriously, years ago now, every dinosaur book seemed to
be a retread of one of Colbert's books, even down to the illustrations. And
it seemed as if every one of them had that damn poem in it. I think Greg Paul
in PDW railed about the older dinosaur books being boring and he was
absolutely correct. DV
