Hugosauriad: Bibliography

Or how to read along to the Hugosauriad.

Below is a more comprehensive list but the main books I used include:

  • Dinosaurs! edited by Jack Dann and Gardener Dozios published by Baen Books. This has A Gun for Dinosaur, Poor Little Warrior and The Night-Blooming Saurian in it. They did a second collection Dinosaurs II which also has great stories in it but not any I covered.
  • A Fistful of Dinosaurs edited by James Patrick Kelley is another great collection and covers more recent stories. It included Think Like a Dinosaurs, Walter Jon Williams’s Dinosaur, The Measure of All Things (Saurs), and If You Were a Dinosaur My Love. It has a story by Robert J Sawyer (but not one I covered in his chapter).

Between those two collections you get a decent sample of the stories covered. Single author story collections I used include:

  • Ray Bradbury Stories Volume 1. This includes The Fog Horn, A Sound of Thunder and Tyrannosaurus Rex (aka The Prehistoric Producer) and a wealth of other Bradbury classics. I also quote the introductory essay ‘Drunk and in Charge of a Bicycle‘.
  • The Palace at Midnight: The collected stories volume 5 by Robert Silverberg. This has ‘Our Lady of the Sauropods’ in it as well as Silverberg’s introduction.
  • The Winds of Marble Arch and Other Stories by Connie Willis. For ‘In the Late Cretaceous’
  • The Thing in the Stone and Other Stories by Clifford D Simak. For the title story.

For non-fiction there two valuable sources:

  • Dinosaurs in Fantastic Fiction by Allen A Debus. This was the book that I should have read first if I was going to do this project properly. Unfortunately, I only got a copy quite late in the process. It’s a big broad study of dinosaurs in fiction and well worth a read.
  • An Informal History of the Hugos: A Personal Look Back at the Hugo Awards, 1953-2000 by Jo Walton. Itself a Hugo finalist, there are overviews and story reviews for every year of the Hugo Awards.
