About this book

An imaginative construction – based on careful research in zoology, botany, and geology and illustrated with more than 150 drawings – depicts the flora and fauna of earth fifty million years from now.

"Uncannily believable. Dixon's invented animals, some of them beautiful enough to live, engender reflection about the mysterious forces at work beneath the skin of real animals."
The New York Times Book Review

"A fascinating, elegant fantasy."
Boston Globe

"After Man is grand fun and marvelously imaginative."
The Los Angeles Times Book Review

"[Dixon's] brief explanation of the principles of evolution is so lucid, and the detailed illustrations of futuristic beasts are so charming, that After Man is bound to captivate readers of all ages."
Chicago Sun-Times

"An extraordinary book! There are wonders on every page. After Man is an extrapolative tour de force."
Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine

"Stunning in execution and implication, this will be a decided treat for futurist biology student or enthusiast, science fiction fan and general reader."
