Alternate Timeline

Anyhow, this 1998 novel Dinosaur Summer by Greg Bear tells the story of an alternate history where humans and dinosaurs both exist in the same time period and shows you what the relationship between the two species is in this astonishing new world.

This alternate history is one in which humans use dinosaurs as attractions to make money in dinosaur circuses that are very exciting for everyone. The fact that they are so exciting causes film producers to not make any money at all because the people care more about the circuses and the amazing entertainment they offer instead of watching movies.

Dying Out

However, these dinosaur circuses slowly start dying out because these creatures start escaping more and more, causing an increase of deaths caused by them, another fact that brings a lot to the dying out of the circuses is that new dinosaurs are very hard to obtain so it starts becoming a bigger problem to keep them in business.

Don’t worry, we won’t forget to mention some characters of Greg Bear’s Dinosaur Summer novel. We meet Peter Belzoni and his father, Anthony Belzoni. Peter has been looking for some fun in the summer, he was bored and his father ends up getting them both to join an expedition with the purpose of returning a few dinosaurs to the wild.

The Last Circus

These dinosaurs belong to the last circus that was slowly going bankrupt. This quest was actually harder than it seems as it is very hard to transport a dinosaur from continent to continent, let alone a dozen. In this attempt to transport them, they become trapped in El Grande, the land in which the circus was built.

Trapped with avisaurs, centrosaurs, ankylosaurs, and a large predatory raptor called Dagger, they immediately come across many dangers and witness Dagger returning to his primal instincts and the urge for an unstoppable killing frenzy.
