So you think, along with all those benighted scientists, that the physical world has been pretty completely explained, and there’s not likely to be anything new under the sun? Well, then, suggests blockbuster king Crichton, how about something old- and-new’specifically, quantum teleportation back to medieval France? Readers who checked under the bed for raptors after finishing The Lost World (1995), and whoever else remains ignorant of the hundreds of time-travel fantasies by non-bestselling authors, will be happily scared to know that the perils of journeying through time are just as great even if it’s a bunch of modern investigators of a contemporary mystery, rather than sleeping dinosaur DNA, making the trip.
