Howard W. Robertson

Love in the Cretaceous

"LOVE IN THE CRETACEOUS turns everything you learned from JURASSIC PARK on its head. In Robertson's Oregon, one hundred years from now, dinosaurs roam the Earth, while humans are busy cutting off their own exit. Robertson, a notable local poet and fiction writer, throws his readers into the soup with love, loss, and extinction (and a very sinister cameo); the thrills in this one are metaphysical as well as primordial, as you'll see when you dip in." - SEATTLE REVIEW OF BOOKS
