Publisher's Summary

"I am often left to wonder why a zombie, walking around in the sun, smells better than a pooping dinosaur."
Two worlds collide in this action novelette. Zombies have destroyed civilization. Gasoline fuel is no longer an option, but humanity must find a way to survive. In response to trying to restore our way of life, we engineer franken-monsters. Because of their small brains and massive sizes, these beasts make quick work of farming and clearing land. These large creatures are immune to the zombie virus and perform excellently in loud conditions. They are easy to train. They behave like war horses, prone to help charge in and defend our livelihood.
In honor of the past, and to help build our future, we named these creatures dinosaurs.

Interesting premise, confusing payoff

Not bad for an hour story I guess, although I found it extremely ambiguous. More or less we started nowhere and that's where we ended up. Rather pointless, but as I'm typically a sucker for dinosaurs I may get the other story I saw in the catalog. Narrative was pretty good.

Introduction to Janus.

The short story Pale Rider introduces us to Janus, the first Blue Brain or Zombie. At the end of civilization as we know it the remaining human survivors struggle to rebuild. Fuel and vehicles are no more so humans genetically engineer animals to be stronger and larger to help in farming, clearing, and transportation duties. These beasts are called dinosaurs. Plots of land must be cleared of zombies to become farms. Our protagonist Paul is known as The Pale Rider. This is the basis of the introduction to our new world. Three.point.five for the effort.
