Re: Dawn of The Dinosaurs

Quoting "T. Michael Keesey" <keesey@gmail.com>:

The book by Nick Fraser (Indiana Univ. Press) is a new book and unrelated
to the 1980s Petrified Forest Museum Association publication "Dawn of the
Dinosaurs" (by Rob Long and Rose Houk) although some of the artwork (by
Doug Henderson) has been reproduced in the newer work.  The similarity of
title is unfortunate and confusing, especially because the PFMA is also
working on rereleasing the original "Dawn of the Dinosaurs" in an expanded
version; however, titles are not subject to copyright.

Which raises the question: how many Mesozoic dinosaur-related books *don't* have duplicate titles?

Then of course there's *Kings of Creation*, which has two titles (I forget what they changed it to).
