We're immensely grateful to this week's sponsor, Howard Robertson, for sharing an excerpt from his recent novel Love in the Cretaceous — which turns everything you learned from Jurassic Park on its head. In Robertson's Oregon, one hundred years from now, dinosaurs roam the earth, while humans are busy cutting off their own exit. Robertson, a notable local poet and fiction writer, throws his readers into the soup with love, loss, and extinction (and a very sinister cameo); the thrills in this one are metaphysical as well as primordial, as you'll see when you dip in.
