Yes, kids, landscaping. But not my yard. Nor even Earth.
I need to ask my online Master Mind (that would be you) to help me come up with an alternate term for ground cover.
Specifically, is there another term for it?
See, I’m rewriting The Dinosaur Lords, and while there’s grass on Paraiso, there’s also a [...]
Big, scary teeth?*
Say hello to my little friend.
News flash: I survived Christmas. And actively enjoyed it. Hope you can say the same.
So a new notion just struck me this afternoon. As you know from reading my free sample chapters of The Dinosaur Lords online on this very site (and if you haven’t, now’s your [...]
… Slouches toward Burque to be born?
Bubonicon 44, of course!
And by “rough beast,” I naturally mean this entirely adorable Mayan Perry Rodent!
Impending Apocalypse never looked so cute!
I love that image! I wish it were on our official tee-shirt. I want it on everything.
Since I can’t find a credit, I can but attribute it to [...]
So, having finally got my Exercise/Anti-Goathead Mat last weekend, I finally assayed the Turkish Getup in my backyard.
Actually, to start with, I did what Pavel calls the “Half Getup,” which means after you hoist the weight you push yourself up on one elbow. Thus:
Only you stop halfway.
Even the Half Getup turned out to [...]
So I’ve been taking off the last few days. I hadn’t really intended to. But there you have it.
So one thing I’ve been doing is playing around with … guess.
Just your average, everyday Thalassodromeus. If by "everyday," you mean, "108 million years ago. In Brazil."*
Yeah, so if I can’t play with dinosaurs (and their [...]
So my American Tolkien* recliner chair is broken. And as intrinsically not-very-important hassles go, this is a Big Deal.
But before I get to serious whingeing, enjoy this obscene song about a Pterodactyl, as animated by The Oatmeal guy.
Feel better now? I know I do. Also, anyone who rolls with Plateosaurus is a player. [...]
Those who spend time with me know I like to say nothing’s real until the check clears the bank.
Well … the check cleared the bank.
The Dinosaur Lords. It’s on.
Look for it in early 2013!
First off, I’m awarding Victor’s Dinosaur Army Legion of Merit (the Dinosaur Army No-Prize) to Nancy Edwards, for conspicuous service in linkage and also ending me a suave dinosaur-bone fossil; and to our own Oliver Mellors, for repeated and continuing service above and beyond.
Also we add to Victor’s Dinosaur Army Roll of Honor Roslee [...]
First off, two new inductees to Victor’s Dinosaur Army Roll of Honor: Brooks Powell and Nan Silvernail. Thanks for boosting the book, kids!
Now: more dinosaurs!
This tubby critter is the analogue to pigs and sheep (no wool-gathering on Paradise, kiddies!) The Wikipedia entry describes them as a little bigger than I remembered: 6 feet [...]
Today we launch a new feature: An Adventurer’s Guide to the Dinosaurs of Paradise – a supplement to the free preview of my epic fantasy novel, THE DINOSAUR LORDS.
