Stories Interesting enough to keep your attention. Main characters lively enough but most of the clients are quite stereotypical loud-mouthed politicians and millionaires who would make good dinosaur bait. ( )

You can tell these are some of his earlier works, but they are light and enjoyable. Answers what happened to the dinosaurs. Doesn't really get into time travel conundrums, luckily.. ( )

Who can resist the appeal of such a title? Regrettably the dirigible doesn't share the setting with the dinosaurs in this anthology of five stories. Four stories follow Vickers, a hunting guide for rich, entitled men and women who provide way more problems than a T. rex or a herd of raptors. The final story involves a dirigible in 1898, inspired by the Great Airship Hoax by American newspapers of that era. The picture of the dinosaur era is richly described and all the stories great fun. Recommended! ( )
