Sharing the love























David suggested that I write a short post introducing myself as the new second author of this blog, so here it is. My name's Marc Vincent, I'm 23, British and have just completed a degree in Journalism, of all things. Naturally, I'm also quite in love with a certain clade of archosaurs, and it's that that's drawn me here. Hopefully I'll be able to churn out posts on at least a semi-regular basis (lack of work ethic not withstanding), and always enjoy reading your comments. Except when it's Matt Martyniuk being right, yet again. Stop embarrassing me, Matt Martyniuk.*

I've got a post in the works based on material gathered during the writing of my undergraduate thesis, which was essentially an analysis of palaeo-related coverage in mainstream UK newspapers - including a few words from Dave Hone and Mark Witton on the subject. I've also got another Vintage Dinosaur Art post lined up for Monday, and at least a few more ideas for the future! I'll still be writing for the Dinosaur Toy Blog, too, about all the daft plastic things that I'm steadily accumulating a worryingly large collection of.

Greetings, then, and it's a real honour to have been asked to contribute to Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs. Hopefully we'll all have a lot of fun.

*I'm joking, obviously. Lova ya Matt.

  1. I'm really glad to welcome you aboard, Marc. I'm sure everyone who has read your previous guest posts is, too!

  2. Marc, sorry to keep nitpicking but it's spelled 'honor' not 'honour'... ;)

  3. Dear Marc,

    Really happy to have you posting here! This will free up some time for David to work on school, mow the yard & take care of all the things around the house that I don't want to do.

    Thanks,
    David's Wife
