PastTime, a drive-through preserve set to open in South Dakota, sports an impressive array of newly cloned Pleistocene mammals. But when sabotage by a disgruntled employee results in gigantic ice-age carnivores being unexpectedly loosed into the midst of enormous herbivores, bedlam ensues. In the process, a small group of humans must overcome their own animosities in order to survive a nightmare! More
It has been more than a quarter of a century since the world first became enamored with dinosaurs as a result of genetically re-engineered animals brought to life in the mind of a gifted and trailblazing author. Much has happened in the rapidly expanding real world of biotechnology in the meantime. For this reason, it was now not only plausible, but inevitable, that the events described in this book would unfold.
Welcome to PastTime, a drive-through preserve comprising 100 square miles of former South Dakota farmland, wherein a prominent Japanese scientist now heads a team employed by billionaire Robert Murdoch for the purposes of genetically re-engineering, not Cretaceous Era Dinosauria, but Pleistocene Epoch Mammalian Megafauna, most of which died out only a few thousand years ago.
PastTime is already resplendent with herds of free roaming Mammoths, Mastodons, Bison, and other gigantic Pleistocene herbivores. And these animals will soon be joined by an even more impressive array of once extinct North American carnivores, including enormous Short-faced Bears, American Lions, American Cheetahs, Dire Wolves, and of course, Saber-Toothed Tigers!
But, the antagonism between the animals is nothing compared to that on display between the small group of humans who, through a series of unfortunate events, are inadvertently thrown into the mix together. Both readers who value animal rights as well as hunters will be impacted by this exhilarating and cautionary tale about survival and dominance in an unexpectedly vicious world.
