Re: Let Us Now Praise Awesome Dinosaurs

Is Readercon more fun than a barrel of dinosaurs? Don’t answer that. Read or listen to  “Let Us Now Praise Awesome Dinosaurs,” by Leonard Richardson first and enjoy the episodic adventures of two dinosaurs from  Mars.

Tark and Entippa make a living riding motocross bikes in arenas full of fans screaming for Destructoraptor. An awesome idea, hilariously executed. I like Tark, from when he  pines for the old America when anyone could buy a gun, to when he tells an annoying kid he’s a kick-your-ass-o-saur, to when Entippa finally tells him he’s gone too far.

You literally killed a guy and ate him. You just confirmed the worst dinosaur stereotype.

The story also plays with imaginary dinosaur species names and clues you in gracefully on how the dinosaurs came to be there. There are some darker elements that aren’t as tragic as they could be, nor are they fully resolved. On the whole, though, it’s a good time.
