Derby Scribes member Peter Borg talks to Hampton Reviews about his short story "Dave's Dinosaur" - published in the Derby Scribes 2011 Anthology.
Peter says, "My latest story, included in the anthology, is the introduction to a longer piece I am writing that follows the title character as he struggles to cope with the surreal situation of an invasion of dinosaurs. He lives in a world that is exactly like ours in every respect with the tiny exception that dinosaurs have spontaneously appeared all over the planet.
"I was playing a game with myself one day. I was trying to think of the strangest possible way to wake up. I thought that there couldn’t be a lot stranger than my partner informing me that there was a dinosaur outside the tent we were sleeping in. The story came from this idea."
