Within Dinosaur Memories II's thirty-eight chapters, Allen A. Debus (a name familiar to dinosaur aficionados and daikaiju fans) presents a selection of his many fanzine writings, stemming from the 1980s through recent time. Although a 'sequel' of sorts, it may be read independently of 2002's "Dinosaur Memories: Dino-Trekking for Beasts of Thunder, Fantastic Saurians, Paleo-people, Dinosaurabilia and other Prehistoria." Today, it would be difficult, time-consuming (& rather expensive) to track down the material presented in this new compilation, scattered among many different fanzines. Presenting edited zine' articles, culled from the pages of Prehistoric Times, G-Fan, Scary Monsters and other fanzines, "DM II's" chapters are organized, following a Preface, into eleven major sections covering the bases of pop-cultural paleontology and dino-monsterology: LOST HORIZONS; CHICAGOLAND DINOSAURS; PALEOIMAGERY vs. PALEOART; SCIENCE FICTIONAL DINO-MONSTERS; STATUESQUE DINOSAURS; UNSUNG PALEO-MONSTERS; MYTHIC MONSTROSITIES; PLANET OF APES vs. DINO-MONSTERS, ASTRO-PALEONTOLOGY; BELLICOSE BEHEMOTHS; and PERSONAL PETROGLYPHS. The book melds nostalgic, personalized perspective with science and fiction of our beloved prehistoric monsters! Particular chapters offer further elaboration on topics introduced in the author's "Paleoimagery: The Evolution of Dinosaurs in Art" (2002), "Dinosaurs in Fantastic Fiction" (2006), and "Prehistoric Monsters" (2009). This is Allen's 8th book overall, five of which were previously published by McFarland Publishers. This createspace platform book was edited for publication by Kristen L. Dennis of Full Proof Editing in 2017. Both an Index, and Foreword by kaiju expert Mike Bogue are included.

Over centuries, discoveries of fossil bones spawned legends of monsters such as giants and dragons. As the field of earth sciences matured during the 19th century, early fossilists gained understanding of prehistoric creatures such as Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops and Stegosaurus. This historical study examines how these genuine beasts morphed in the public imagination into mythical, powerful engines of destruction and harbingers of cataclysm, taking their place in popular culture, film, and literature as symbols of “lost worlds” where time stands still.

It emphasizes the use of relatively inexpensive materials including oven-hardening polymer clay and wire.

This book will appeal to a new generation who would like to break into the industry of paleosculpture.

Dinosaurs Are Forever A pictorial history of paleoart It was 1830 when an English scientist named Henry De la Beche painted the first piece of paleoart, a dazzling, deliciously macabre vision of prehistoric reptiles battling underwater. Since then, artists the world over have conjured up visions of dinosaurs, woolly mammoths, cavemen, and other creatures, shaping our understanding of the primeval past through their exhilarating images. In this unprecedented new book, writer Zo� Lescaze and artist Walton Ford present the astonishing history of paleoart from 1830 to 1990. These are not cave paintings produced thousands of years ago, but modern visions of the prehistory: stunning paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, mosaics, and murals that mingle scientific fact with unbridled fantasy. The collection provides an in-depth look at this neglected niche of art history, and shows the artists charged with imagining these extinct creatures projected their own aesthetic whims onto prehistory, rendering the primordial past with dashes of Romanticism, Impressionism, Japonisme, Fauvism, and Art Nouveau, among other influences. With incisive essays from Lescaze, a preface by Ford, five fold-outs, and dozens of details, the book showcases a stunning collection of artworks plucked from major natural history museums, obscure archives, and private collections, and includes new photography of key works, including Charles R. Knight's seminal dinosaur paintings in Chicago and little-known masterpieces such as A. M. Belashova's monumental mosaic in Moscow. From the fearsome to the fantastical, Paleoart: Visions of a Prehistoric Past 1830-1990 is a celebration of prehistoric animals in art, and a novel chance to understand our favorite extinct beasts through a new art historical lens.
