A Very Large Array(1987)Hardcover  Paperback  Kindle

Victor Milan is an American author best known for writing several series and standalone novels in the fantasy, science fiction, thriller, and Westerns genres. He first came into prominence when he won the Prometheus Award in 1986 for his novel “Cybernetic Samurai”. Milan has been a writer for over 31 years, though he has also worked as a computer support technician, semi-pro actor, cowboy, long time emcee of the Collinsville, Illinois Archon multi genre convention, and Albuquerque rock DJ. Except for a period of about 10 months in 2000 when he had to get formal employment, Victor Milan has pretty much been a writer his entire adult life. Born in Tulsa Oklahoma and now a longtime resident of Albuquerque, New Mexico, he is well-known for his interest in cybernetics and a libertarian bent to his science fiction. Victor is a prolific author and has more than 100 novels under his belt as well as many short stories. In addition to the many novels under his real name, he has also published many others under pen names. Some of his pseudonyms include Richard Austin in The Guardians series, SL Hunter in the Steele series that he co-wrote with Simon Hawke, and Robert Baron in the Stormrider series. He also writes the Outlanders and Deathlands series of novels under the pen name James Axler. He currently lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico with Emma a burly dog and two cats Squeak and TJ. When he is not writing he loves hanging with friends, playing with firearms, recumbent cycling, birding, reading, and walking his dog in the scenic North valley of Albuquerque.

Victor Milan has always been an obsessive reader right from childhood. Similar to many writers, he preferred to escape into the world of books rather than play with other kids. However, even as he read many different genres of fiction and non-fiction in his childhood, dinosaurs were always one of his favorite stories. As a child and as an adult researching his novels, he would watch dinosaur documentaries, read dinosaur books, and read articles online to get a better understanding of the creatures. His interest somewhat flagged while he was an adolescent but came back stronger once some commonly held myths were dispelled by science. The discovery of dinosaurs as warm-blooded, dynamic, and active creatures as opposed to the tail drugging cold-blooded slow creatures people thought them to be, reawakened his interest. His reading from a variety of authors made a huge imprint on Milan over the years. Some of his most important influences include Vance from whom he finds inspiration more than style, and authors such as David Brin, Robert E. Howard, and Zelazny. “The Chinatown Deathcloud Peril: A Novel Aside” has also been an important influence in his later years as apart from being a gripping read it served to liberate him from perfection mentality. It made him acknowledge that his writing was primarily for entertainment, and that is what readers needed from him – not perfection. Milan is a member of the Critical Mass writers group, a peer-to-peer club of writers that he asserts is a massive help in critiquing and helping each other grow as writers.

Described as a cross between RR Martins Game of Thrones and Jurassic Park, Milan’s Dinosaur Lords is one of the most thrilling reads in fantasy fiction. Set in a medieval type world called Paradise that is the work of eight creators, the novel features kings, knights, and ordinary people in a vicious struggle for power and dominance. Milan is a very skilled world builder and storyteller incorporating all the minute details in his characters and plots to make for one hell of a narrative. His characters are not the typical all brawn and no brain archetypes, being thoughtful complex persons with hidden motives secrets and desires. The novels are full of descriptive details on swords and castles, chivalric codes of honor, feasts, medieval courts, and battles and jousts between opposing knights riding dinosaurs. However, the more enthralling part of the novels are the far subtler, deadlier and costlier games that are played in the town halls, temples and castles of Paradise. The games that may best be referred to as moving pieces on a chessboard that reflect the shifting nature of ambition and power as the elite of Paradise joust for influence. There is also the fair sprinkling of sexual encounters, different languages, and great commentaries on peasant-lord relationships.

“The Dinosaur Lords” is the brilliant first novel in the Dinosaur Lords series of novels by Victor Milan. The novel is set on Paradise, a sprawling, brutal, and diverse world where dinosaurs function as beasts war and burden alongside the common Earthly animals such as horses, goats, ferrets, cars and dogs. The novels feature some of the most terrifying of ancient beasts including Tyrannosaurus Rex, Allosaurus, and Brachiosaurus. There are also giants lizards swimming the oceans, and flying reptiles varying in size from deadly dragons to bat sized insect eaters. Paradise mirrors medieval Europe with its Byzantine like politics, religious wars, and dynastic rivalries. Dinosaurs are the choice beast of war that knights ride to battle. It is during one of these epic battles that Karyl Bogomirsky an enigmatic mercenary is betrayed by one of his closest lieutenants and left for dead on the battlefield. But he awakes to find himself partially amnesiac, wounded, naked, and hunted down like an animal. Running from his unknown pursuers, he embarks on a quest that will forever change his world.

“The Dinosaur Knights” is the worthy sequel to the first novel in the Dinosaur Lord series of novels “The Dinosaur Lords”. Karyl Bogomirsky, unlike his contemporaries is a knight that believes humanity has more to gain by finding peace away from the madness and war that characterizes Paradise. But the predominant empire in his world has declared war on his peaceful kingdom. Their religious crusade has the sole aim of converting or failing that, destroying all the peaceful people that live in the kingdom. Things come to a head when the Grey Angels, the servants of the eight creators of the Paradise world appear on the scene after an absence of almost a thousand years. Previously believed to be legends used to scare mischievous children, the fabled creatures turn out to be very real and powerful beyond measure. They have only one cause on Paradise – rid it of all kinds of sin, including the humans that are involved in them.
