Paleontology meets pop culture in a talented young author’s journey into the lives of dinosaurs. Dinosaurs, with their awe-inspiring size, terrifying claws and teeth, and otherworldly abilities, occupy a sacred place in our childhoods. They loom over museum halls, thunder through movies, and are a fundamental part of our collective imagination. In My Beloved Brontosaurus, the dinosaur fanatic Brian Switek enriches the childlike sense of wonder these amazing creatures instill in us. Investigating the latest discoveries in paleontology, he breathes new life into old bones. Switek reunites us with these mysterious creatures as he visits desolate excavation sites and hallowed museum vaults, exploring everything from the sex life of Apatosaurus and T. rex’s feather-laden body to just why dinosaurs vanished. (And of course, on his journey, he celebrates the book’s titular hero, ´´Brontosaurus” - who suffered a second extinction when we learned he never existed at all - as a symbol of scientific progress.) With infectious enthusiasm, Switek questions what we’ve long held to be true about these beasts, weaving in stories from his obsession with dinosaurs, which started when he was just knee-high to a Stegosaurus. Endearing, surprising, and essential to our understanding of our own evolution and our place on Earth, My Beloved Brontosaurus is an audiobook that dinosaur fans and anyone interested in scientific progress will cherish for years to come. Includes a bonus interview between Brian Switek and Amanda Moon, managing editor of the Scientific American imprint at Farrar, Straus and Giroux. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Switek.

Theres a bimbo on the cover of the book. She is blonde and she is sexy; She is nowhere in the text. She is a bimbo on the cover of the book. A bimbo can happen to anyone, even to an Analog-favorite writer like Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff. And when it does, theres nothing to do but to write a song about it-which is just one of the Things youll find in these pages. Along with Things, youll see what might happen when we finally make First Contact. Youll read the advice an alien would give to the lovelorn. Youll find that houses can be haunted by things that are far nastier than ghosts; that wishes can be granted in unexpected ways. But not all stories can have happy endings. Some of them will disturb you or remind you that there are things worse than death. Every story will have you turning the page to find out what happens next. From funny to serious, from dark fantasy to straight-up science fiction, and even into mystery, Maya is a master storyteller and we are delighted to present this collection of her work.
