Betting On Foreverby Billy Aronson, John Quinn (Illustrator)
It was a typical spring morning,in a typical park,in a typical townuntil a saber-tooth tiger came charging out from behind a bench. And a wolly mammoth leapt out from a bush. And a tyrannosaurus emerged from behind a hill,a giant dragonfly fluttered from the branches of a tree,and dozens of other extinct creatures came dashing,waddling,and flying together for their Extinct Animal Reunion. These extinct creatures have been showing up for reunions every ten thousand years or so,to enjoy a pleasant look at life on the old planet. But this reunion turns out to be anything but pleasant. As the old timers boast about how hard things were in their day,when they had to deal wth ice ages,devastating meteors,and towering meat-eaters,a newly extinct creaturean odd little birdbets the others that creatures living now have it harder than they ever did. . . and that life on the planet might in fact be coming to an end. Though the others think the bird's out to lunch,they accept the bet,and set out to explore the planet they thought they knew. . . Take a tour with these prehistoric visitors,as they uncover clues that baffle them,horrify them,and convince them that. . . SOMETHING WIERD IS HAPPENING ON THE OLD HOME PLANET.
