We gave it a B

The Americans and the East-Bloc establish rival bases on Venus in this alternate history of the space race. By 1988, both sides discover that dinosaurs, Neanderthals, and primitive Homo sapiens may not be Venus’ only inhabitants.

For Fans of…
Edgar Rice Burroughs’ The Land That Time Forgot — there’s even a ”Fort Dinosaur.”

Last Word
It takes Stirling 100 pages to get started, but he builds a sturdy foundation for his planned sequel.
