Brent A Harris is a stand-up guy. Not only did he (and Ricardo Victoria and Leo McBride) accept my story “The Devout Atheist” for their Tales from the Universe anthology, he took it upon himself to read Groom of the Tyrannosaur Queen and review it! Positively! Without any bribery at all!
Author Brent A Harris turns reviewer as he delivers his verdict on the pre-historic pulse-pounding pulp prose that is Groom of the Tyrannosaur Queen, by Daniel M Bensen.
Time travel, alternate timelines, dinosaurs. That was more than enough to interest me in Daniel M Bensen’s Groom of the Tyrannosaur Queen. And, while the title implies that it has more in common with Taken by a Pteranodan than pulp sci-fi, (other than a couple salacious scenes and some bits of violence befitting a Zack Snyder Batman film), Bensen crafts a rather high-brow look at a lost colony, complete with dimensionalities: language, ethics, and culture/religion. In other words, it is not a caveman-meets-woman/angel-of-the-future-love-story—well, it is that, but it also has a depth, which is unexpected in the day of self-published works.
