The Dinosaur Diaries

and Other Tales Across Space and Time



By Scott William Carter






With a foreword by

 Kristine Kathryn Rusch












For Mom and Dad.  I'm still that kid who spent all those hours in his room dreaming up imaginary worlds.  Now I just write them down.








There are many people who have helped me with my short fiction over the years, too many, really, to list here, but there are a few I would like to single out:  Kristine Kathryn Rusch, for both encouragement and unflinching honesty, a rare combination in a mentor, and for being the best example of professionalism a writer could ask for; Dean Wesley Smith, for not being surprised when I came back to writing much more seriously the second time; Stanley Schmidt at Analog, for seeing a spark in that first story he bought from me, and for being willing to work with a relatively new writer on it; Shawna McCarthy at Realms of Fantasy; Sheila Williams at Asimov's; Janet Hutchings at Ellery Queen; Peter Crowther at PS Publishing; Denise Little at Tekno; all the members of the Eugene Writers Workshop from 1991-1994; all the members of the Nexus Writers Workshop from 2002-2003; Kate Wilhelm and other members of her monthly workshop; all the members of the various Oregon Coast Professional Writers Workshops I attended over the years; Douglas Cohen and Warren Lapine at Fantastic Books, who believed in my work and shepherded this collection into print; and of course, my first reader and the love of my life, Heidi Carter.
