…wait, before I go there’s homework

I was thinking of looking at Hugo short fiction just through the medium of dinosaurs because why not. Now, I do NOT need suggestions of dinosaur related short fiction from 2014 onward (that is all well covered and I know what’s what) but I’d like suggestions of stuff from 2013 and backwards eg. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scherzo_with_Tyrannosaur

In this case (and it pains me to say it) dragons don’t count but Pellucidar style stuff does. You’ve got two weeks!

  1. WELL ACTUALLY…. I think you’ll find many Hugo short winners are about dinosaurs.

    1960 Daniel Keyes – Flowers for Allosaurus
    1966 Harlan Ellison – “Repent, Harlequin!” Said the Tyrannosaur
    1968 Harlan Ellison – I Have No Mouth But Hope To Evolve One Soon
    1974 Ursula K. Le Guin – The Ones Who Walk Away from Omeisaurus
    1977 Joe Haldeman – Triceratops

      1. That should also rope in Connie Willis, “In the Late Cretaceous” (short story, 1992), which is about people that like to talk about dinosaurs.

        (Also skimming through the list reminded me of just how far off my vague long-term goal of reading all of the Hugo finalists is.)
