    For some reason I picked this book up immediately after finishing Ionesco's Rhinoceros and Other Plays Needless to say by the time I finished this one I felt like someone had slipped a psychedelic into my ginger aleFirst and foremost for those who are wondering yes it is that George Gaylord Simpson The paleontologist I didn't even make the connection when I snagged this from the library I was drawn in by the title and when I saw that the Introduction was provided by Arthur C Clarke and the Afterword by Stephen Jay Gould I figured I was in for a treatSadly it didn't live up to my expectations but really I read Rhinoceros first It's hard to compete with thatThe posthumously published story here is that a 22nd century scientist is sent back in time to the Jurassic era Surrounded by dinosaurs he uses his knowledge and wits to surviveSounds great right? I wish it were I wanted it to be awesome And maybe it's just that I have insomnia like no one's freaking business right now and so I'm totally on edge and pretty darn grumpy and all I can do is read and as I've already mentioned I seem to be on some sort of weird fiction kick right now And right now might not be the best time for all of that Still this novella is a uick read and had I been feeling better I would probably have enjoyed it Someone into paleontology should read this just so I can see if it's just me

    This is such a great little story The bright pink cover is at odds with the storyline but don't let that put you off I actually uite like the colourit's 'uirky' A very uick read and therein lies it's only flawit ended too soon I hung on every word and would have liked to see many many of themThe book was only ever intended as an amusement for the author the George Gaylord Simson but by chance it was found after his death and published and lucky for us that it wasShort synopsis would be that an academic Sam McGruder from the far future the year 2162 accidentally travels back in time to a place in prehistory where dinosaurs roamed with no chance of ever getting back Now it's not just the story that hooks the reader it's all the thought provoking ideas that the story presents too What would I do? How would I cope? Would I cope?I wanted it to go on and on and onIt's very short so any details I give are likely to be spoilers but it's a great book and one not to be missed From the moment you pick it up it will draw you in Even if it's not your usual type of reading material it's still worth the readRememberdon't let the pink cover put you off

    This novella has a strange background It is written by George Gaylord Simpson the greatest paleontologist and one of the best evolutionary biologists of the 20th century The manuscript wasn't discovered by his daughter until 10 years after his death It is the story of a 22nd century scientist who accidentally ends up 80 million years in the past during the Cretaceous It is the story of his observations of the dinosaurs and mammals of the time and how a post modern man survives with no modern resources and as the only human beingIt's a short interesting tale as much about evolution as anything else It is not the sharpest written story but easy to read and educational

    This one is a treat A time travel novella written by the George Gaylord Simpson found by his family after his death Which then managed to win Stephen Jay Gould and Arthur C Clarke for an afterword and the introduction The novella itself is solid maybe a bit slow at length given how short the overall text is But the slow parts are there for some interesting reasons as SJ Gould points out nicely in his afterwordDefinitely worth a read if you are a interested in time travel stories b like dinosaurs c have a keen interest in paleontologyevolutionary biology d all of the above

    Simpson was the most famous paleontologist in the world with a specialisation in the early period of when dinosaurs and mammals co existed so with the posthumous publication of Magruder he surprised everyone with what is essentially a short but very competent science fiction novel in which a 22nd century time experiment throws a chronologist back to the Cretaceous Period It was probably written for Simpson’s own amusement in the 1970s given that that decade is bracketed by a 1970 theory on the possibility of warm blooded dinosaurs something that Simpson disagreed with and the lack of any mention of the ‘asteroid impact’ cause of their demise a theory which first surfaced in 1980 Magruder is very much in the reliable HG Wells Time Machine tradition and the novel comes with an introduction from Arthur C Clarke that puts the novel in its science fictional context and an afterword from Stephen Jay Gould that does the same for it paleontologically and Gould also demonstrates why there’s far going on in the novel than you thought An unexpected find and a good uick read

    Only two stars This book was touted as the best book on time travel since Wells's Time Machine So I expected it would have you know character development or some interesting philosophical ideas in it I'll never learn

    I'm not normally a Sci Fi fan but this remarkable novel by the last century's leading paleontologist had me hooked right from the startdon't skip the forward by Arthur C Clarke and afterword by Stephen Jay Gould
