Two years before Arthur Conan Doyle described the adventures of British naturalists in search of dinosaurs in his 1912 novel
The Lost World
, French author
published a tale of dinosaurs beneath the streets of Paris. For many years it was overlooked, but as paleontologist Michael Ryan recently wrote on his blog, there is a new English translation called
Panic in Paris
that will soon be released.
I have been unable to find a synopsis of the book (other than "Dinosaurs eat Paris"), but the
new cover art
by Stephen Bissette looks pretty cool. I'll report back here when I manage to get my claws on a copy.
