Lojor was the Einstein of the dinosaur world, and he had a problem.  His government wanted him to invent the hydrogen bomb.  Lojor did not know how to do this, and he did not want to learn because he was opposed to the idea.  But the demands on him were relentless, and he had to come up with something.

Lojor was an astrophysicist.  He wanted to keep on doing what he loved, which was trying to understand the sun.  The government didn't care about the sun, only about the bomb.  Lojor had an idea.  He told the government that the sun was like a hydrogen bomb, which was true.  And he told them that if they financed an expensive mission to the planet closest to the sun, that one day humans would call Mercury, he could use the information learned there to get started on the bomb, which might or might not have been true.  A mission to Mercury would get the government off his back and pay for his astronomical research at the same time.  It might also bankrupt the government, which would stop them from working on nuclear weapons, but Lojor was cagey about this aspect.

So the government went to Mercury, and Lojor went along.  At first everything worked out according to his private plan.  The base was established, instruments were installed, data began to flow in, and all talk of a future bomb remained theoretical.  However, conditions on Mercury were not entirely as expected.  It was an unchanging world, they had thought, boring and safe, as long as the explorers avoided the direct rays of the nearby sun furiously blazing away in the black sky.  It turned out that Mercury had its secrets: The dinosaurs called it the Innermost Planet, but really it was the Burn World of the Dragon!

Burn World of the Dragon is part of a series about an ancient dinosaurian civilization.  Each book stands alone and can be read by itself, or together with the others.  If you enjoy stories such as Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton, you should check out Burn World of the Dragon.  Cross the solar system – go back in time – buy this adventure-packed tale today!
