Up In Smoke


That’s where, for the first two days I’ve been trying it, my pious resolve to follow my new tentative work/doing schedule – so I can start getting on top of things, you know? – has gone the moment I checked my email.

Today it’s because of this:

2015-01-28 DinoLords ARC via Tor Twitter!

As I told Tor, the toy dino is a stroke of genius.


The Dinosaur Lords Expand Their Realm!


Which is a fancy way of saying that, after we linked to the novel on Amazon for pre-order in hardcover and Kindle the other day, I then discovered thanks to my friend Serge Broom that it could also be had on Barnes & Noble, in both dead-tree and Nook ebook form.


Now please enjoy this uncommonly hard-core painting of a Centrosaurus apertus.

Also, buzz continues to build for The Dinosaur Lords, huzzah!

Dinosaurs of the Amazon!


No, not the river in South America, although I gather the ones they have down there* are spectacular and colorful. But rather the online-seller-of-books-and-some-of-everything-else, Amazon.

Yes, The Dinosaur Lords is now up for pre-order there!

Get ‘em while they last!

Yes, the image is plastered all over the site – if it weren’t, my most excellent Webmaster Ron Miles would have fallen down on the job. And we know that’s not gonna happen. But here’s the actual cover. Complete with The Quote. (Sure, you may’ve seen it. But just in case….)

Now, you may wonder what the big deal is – the hardcover’s been available on Amazon for a month or so already. But the news here is -

Launching Dinos!


Okay, now, this is seriously great.

This here is the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It happens to be owned by one George R. R. Martin.

And thanks to That American Tolkien Guy, it will also be the site of the World Premier Launch Party for a modest little tome I like to call The Dinosaur Lords on Monday, August 3rd, 2015.

Which also happens to be my 61st birthday. How cool is that?

My Favorite Christmas Movies



Because it’s that time of year – and I’m trying to get myself to post here, to be on-the-nose about it – let’s count down my current faves.

5) Lethal Weapon – Because nothing says “L.A. Christmastime in the Eighties” like an opening scene of a drugged-out topless woman plunging to her death over a railing festooned with colored holiday lights! Also, of course, an all-time awesome actioner.

The Dinosaur Lord Conquers A New Domain!


I came, I saw, I conquered! As in, www.DinosaurLords.com is mine!

You'll notice - because as a friend or reader of mine, you're sharp that way! - that it takes you to a familiar-looking destination. As in, one that has the exact same look as my regular page, www.VictorMilan.com. Well, except for lacking the spiffalicious counter counting down the days until the release date of The Dinosaur Lords. But it basically links you to the same crunchy, dino-packed goodness as my home page does.

And by "conquered," I mean my good friend, the estimable Larry Hays, wondered if the domain was taken, checked it out, and on finding it was available, went and bought it for me!

Which was most assuredly cool and generous of him, and likewise merits a hearty Dinosaur Roar!

Rawr because RAWR!!1!

In fact, two minutes' worth!

Wild Cards: The fan trailer!


So, possibly in honor of the release of the new Wild Cards collaborative novel Lowball, which is also available on Kindle here - click the links to buy, and support a deserving author even if he doesn't happen to be in the book! - a fan decided to post a book trailer for the series on YouTube.


This may not be the Wild Cards movie we want - yet.

But it is definitely the Wild Cards LEGO (!) trailer we need.

Okay, apparently not for the release, since it's dated April 10th.
