If the reader (you) is interested, let me introduce this volume with a tiny bit of background: “These Days” was the phrase I applied to Dinosaurs (if they were still here) Monsters from Movies (if they were real) and Lovecraft’s creations (if they too were real and our contemporaries). The result was this three-pronged (watch out for those prongs!) effort you are now perusing. I put these out as separate books in very limited test runs for local conventions—kinda test-marketing them if you will—and what do you think? They were actually well received, especially with kids. I hope that you will also enjoy them in this collected package.
