Biography

A NOTE FROM J. ROCK, Dec. 2012:
Dear Readers, I have heeded your words, and so I am making some minor changes to Dinosauria, Volume I (Parts I-IV). I get quite a bit of mail from readers who have enjoyed the series thus far, but they all seem to have one common complaint: the beginning. A lot of readers have told me how they almost gave up on the story because the beginning is intentionally confusing, with little to no resolution until much later in the plot. Recently, I had a fan send me a home edit they did on the story, whereby they put Part III of the story in place of Part I, and shuffled everything else. The result, in my opinion, is a superior product, more accessible to new readers. I will be publishing this new product this month. If you are already a reader of Dinosauria, you needn't worry: the story is EXACTLY the same, just presented in a different order; you miss out on nothing. However, if you feel at all sleighted by these new changes, please, let me know: dinosauria@hotmail.ca. I will rectify the situation to your satisfaction. Thanks for reading, and may Atreus be with you!

    Different, that's for sure. The style is remniscient of Chuck Palahniuk, as well as the content. Not everyone will "get it", but I think that's what you were going for.
