Molding a Jurassic Universe

Molding a Jurassic Universe

By Steven Ray Morris

Molding A Jurassic Universe is a collection of essays exploring the space where nostalgia and geeky culture collide, all through the lens of Jurassic Park and the Jurassic Park franchise. The twenty-one essays muse on traumatized heroes, dinosaur martyrdom, the ethical implications of having a theme park full of extinct creatures brought back to life, cynicism as form and function in filmmaking, a shaving cream can as a foundation to world-building, and more. Molding A Jurassic Universe, is also a primer for the onscreen world of Jurassic Park on the eve of the rebirth of this franchise.

“As an almost lifelong Jurassic Park devotee, I was surprised to learn a few new things about my favorite franchise in Molding a Jurassic Universe. It’s a delightfully nostalgic look back at a unique source of entertainment that holds a special place in this nerd’s heart and mind.”
Jill Pantozzi, Editor in Chief of The Mary Sue, The Nerdy Bird
