"It's like a cross between Jurassic Park and Game of Thrones." —George R. R. Martin A world made by the Eight Creators on which to play out their games of passion and power, Paradise is a sprawling, diverse, often brutal place. Men and women live on Paradise as do dogs, cats, ferrets, goats, and horses. But dinosaurs predominate: wildlife, monsters, beasts of burden–and of war. Colossal plant-eaters like Brachiosaurus; terrifying meat-eaters like Allosaurus, and the most feared of all, Tyrannosaurus rex. Giant lizards swim warm seas. Birds (some with teeth) share the sky with flying reptiles that range in size from bat-sized insectivores to majestic and deadly Dragons. Thus we are plunged into Victor Milán's splendidly weird world of The Dinosaur Lords, a place that for all purposes mirrors 14th century Europe with its dynastic rivalries, religious wars, and byzantine politics...except the weapons of choice are dinosaurs. Where vast armies of dinosaur-mounted knights engage in battle. During the course of one of these epic battles, the enigmatic mercenary Dinosaur Lord Karyl Bogomirsky is defeated through betrayal and left for dead. He wakes, naked, wounded, partially amnesiac–and hunted. And embarks upon a journey that will shake his world.

With blockbusters like Jurassic Park, it's easy to see that filmmakers and audiences alike are interested in seeing dinosaurs on screen. This comprehensive filmography, arranged alphabetically, gives for each film the basic facts (year of release, country of origin, studio, running time), a plot summary, the author's critical commentary, and (except for minor works) a section on people and production, and information on the special effects. One appendix gives capsule entries for films that deal only briefly with dinosaurs; another lists films never made or never completed; a third covers Toho Studio's quasi-dinosaurs. To be included, a movie must depict one or more prehistoric, reptilian, and non-humanoid creatures. Inaccurate portrayals are included, so long as the intent is to represent a dinosaur. Excluded are films with only prehistoric mammals, those with prehistoric humans but lacking primordial reptiles, and those with mythical creatures.
