Teaser Tuesday (24 August)

Teaser Tuesdays are sometimes ominous. Not quite as ominous as this.

Consumed by flames, the torso crackled and the fat sputtered, and then as the skin burned away, the black, flat ribs of the skeleton were revealed, and then the whole torso turned, and suddenly the neck of the animal swung up, surrounded by flames, moving as the skin contracted. And inside the flames Levine saw a long pointed snout, and rows of sharp predatory teeth, and hollow eye sockets, the whole thing burning like some medieval dragon rising in flames up into the sky. 

p. 26, The Lost World. Michael Crichton.

    Just watching Jurassic Park was scary enough without reading the book that it was based on!
