Matthew Rossi

Matthew Rossi @MatthewWRossi — Matthew Rossi is a synapsid, perhaps descended from Cynognathus. He was born in Providence, Rhode Island, and grew up there before leaving to see the world and be mistaken for a sasquatch and/or minor singing celebrity in various locales. He currently lives and writes in Edmonton alongside his amazing and beautiful wife and their cats. He’s written three collections of speculative fiction, Things That Never Were, Bottled Demon and At Last, Atlantis. He loves playing warriors in World of Warcraft, barbarians in Diablo III, and he’s beginning to notice a pattern here.

The Queue: Imagine if dinosaurs could be vampires

Pegomastax was almost certainly not a vampire. I mean, it had weird, elongated fangs, especially for an herbivore, but it was almost certainly a normal member of the Heterodontosauridae and not a vampire. Which is good, because if it were a vampire, it might well have survived all the way to the present day and then you’d have to worry about a vampire with 65 million or so years of experience coming after you when you slept.

With all that experience you would never hear it until it had those teeth in your throat.

This is the Queue. Don’t worry, there are no such things as vampire dinosaurs.
