An orphaned Tyrannosaurus Rex, an impotent young man and a man who could not die – these are just a few of the characters that await readers in author Dominick Ricca’s new book. “I, Tyrannosaurus Rex and Other Stories” is an anthology of highly original and darkly imaginative tales cuts through genres and offers something appetizing for any adult reader.

“I, Tyrannosaurus Rex and Other Stories” is a collection of 29 stories that feature plot twists and scenarios ranging from the bizarre to the believable. For instance, the title story, “I, Tyrannosaurus Rex,” talks of predators, primal instincts and existentialism in the amusing voice of the eponymous dinosaur; “God, Adam, and Eve and the Garden of Eden and the Son of God” is a speculative and offbeat retelling of the Creation Story; and “The Woman Who Was Resurrected By the Power of Love” is a cheeky story of a reverend whose dream of finally fulfilling his carnal fantasies is cut short when his fiancé unexpectedly dies. The standout feature of this anthology is that Ricca successfully injects ample humor and humanity to balance out the outrageous and sometimes morbid premises.

Hilarious, irreverent, entertaining, “I, Tyrannosaurus Rex and Other Stories” is proof positive of the power of stories to transcend the mundane; Dominick Ricca, like the best fictionists, re-works tradition to present new, original life in fiction, and does this in an awe-inspiring and amusing way.
