Douglas Preston, Relic, & Night at the Natural History Museum

In the current issue of Paraphilia Magazine, the Secret History of Art has an article about one of his favorite novels, Relic, by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, along with an exclusive interview with Preston.

Relic is one of the best thrillers I’ve ever read, every bit as good as Jurassic Park, and nearly as influential.  It also links into a long-time fear I’ve had since childhood, a nightmare in which I wake in my pajamas in a natural history museum, and the exhibits come alive (note: I had this dream long before Ben Stiller made a movie about it…perhaps he had the same dream…)
