Michael Panush's DINOSAUR JAZZ is a fun read, with a larger than life setting.

"I  love the concepts driving this book, and the writing is clean, crisp, and poignant. A more mature read than "Stein and Candle," but no less fun, Dinosaur Jazz is a fast paced, and peopled with interesting characters"

"It’s well worth your time to seek out and luxuriate in this exuberant slice of monster mayhem. Overall a great, fun romp chock full of derring-do and more prehistoric action than you can shake a stick at." Review of Dinosaur Jazz by +Michael Panush from +The Eloquent Page.

Check out the interview with +Michael Panush. He talks about the real person who inspired the Dinosaur Jazz villian, Lord Ruthven Ironside, and gives one of the first mentions to his upcoming novel El Mosaico, an #occult   #western .

Story
Tagline
Its Jazz Age meets the Mesozoic Age! A tale of high adventure in a prehistoric world.
Introduction

Acheron Island is a world lost to time, home to prehistoric creatures from earth’s savage past.

The island’s occupants range from ferocious, man-eating dinosaurs and savage Ape Man tribes to strange ruins from a lost civilization. It is also home to Sir Edwin Crowe, son of the Victorian explorer who discovered Acheron Island, renowned big game hunter, scarred Great War veteran, and last of the world’s Gentleman Adventurers.

But now Acheron Island has some new residents – ruthless American businessman Selwyn Slade and an army of corporate cronies. Why has Slade brought all of his modern industrial power to conquer this world from the past? Can Sir Edwin uncover his strange purpose and protect this prehistoric world? Sir Edwin’s only allies are his stalwart Ape Man partner, a beautiful torch singer with a mysterious agenda, his strong-willed sister and her archaeologist boyfriend, and a family of American tourists – and they’re about to become the last hope of a lost world.

Its Jazz Age meets the Mesozoic Age in a world where cave men, gangsters, hunters, zeppelins, pirates, warlords and dinosaurs clash for a chance of survival. All that and more is waiting for you in Dinosaur Jazz, a tale of high adventure in a prehistoric world.
