Re: Phil Currie and Burroughs?

Other paleontologists have published fiction on lost worlds inhabited by dinosaurs:

besides George Gaylord Simpson's well-known, posthumous short story, the late Canadian fossil track specialist William A. S. Sarjeant published several novels about lost worlds of living dinos, under the name "Anthony Swithin" (his middle names). Sarjeant also published articles on geology in fiction, such as Arthur Conan Doyle and Tolkien.

The Russian paleontologist Ivan A. Efremov, who discovered Tarbosaurus bataar in the the Gobi in the 1940s, wrote a sci-fi novel called "Shadow of the Past" (1953), featuring fossil hunters who find a cave wall covered in resin that had acted as a natural photographic film, capturing images of the living Tarbosaurus.

and of course, don't forget the Turok, Son of Stone comics, about Plains Indians trapped in a lost valley of dinosaurs, in the 1950s-60s

I suppose I shouldn't be surprised though, seeing as so many of us love the same things. You know, like those lost worlds inhabbited by dinosaurs ?
