I thought of a possible creature to include in a future volume of The Kaligen Experiment. I am envisioning this animal to be like a mix between Basilosaurus and Shastasaurus. Imagine swimming in the ocean with such a beast. My mind is always at work brainstorming new mutant creatures to include in my series. All of prehistory is overflowing with inspiration.
I found this video that talked about another prediction of how “modern” dinosaurs would look like. This prediction is based on the idea of reverse engineering birds back into dinosaurs. The images that were used to represent the “modern” dinosaurs were very intriguing. Overall, this is much tamer than the Jurassic Parkscenario.
I found this video that talks about a fictional project that depicts what a responsibly run dinosaur theme park might look like. The project is called Prehistorica and it essentially depicts what Jurassic Park could have been if it never failed.
I have always been fascinated by the giant arthropods that existed 300 million years ago in the Carboniferous Period. They were nowhere near as big as the giant bugs you see in science fiction stories. However, they were still amazing because it is hard to imagine that insects such as those actually lived long ago. I am planning to depict a swarm of these large arthropods in The Kaligen Experiment. I will be drawing inspiration from the bug swarms of Starship Troopers.
Over the years, I have gone on vacation to Hawaii with my family. While I was there, I was fascinated by how the local plants all intertwined with one another, creating a thick jungle that is difficult to navigate. I later learned that a number of the plants were not even native to the islands and that the local and foreign plants were trying to envelope one another. This is what resulted in the tangled wilderness in Hawaii’s jungles. One time, I learned that one of our guides was the son of the original Shazam/Captain Marvel actor from the 1970s television show. That revelation made me geek out! While writing The Kaligen Experiment, I drew heavy inspiration from the tangled rainforests of Hawaii when depicting the primeval wilderness.
I just had a crazy idea for a future idea for The Kaligen Experiment. This idea will allow me to break the 4th wall like Deadpool. This story idea will be seen through my point of view as an author and will revolve around what could happen if my writing becomes real. For the longest time, my greatest fantasy was making my imagination real and this would be a good way to put that fantasy on paper.
After much brainstorming, I have decided that The Kaligen Experiment will consist of seven books, including the zoological book. That means five more volumes will come after the first two that will be released in the near future. I already am coming up with frightening ideas and refining some of my original ideas. It has been a very mentally stimulating process. I will keep you updated on any and all developments as the series progresses.
I heard an intriguing rumor about Season 4 of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. It has been implied that the campers will somehow end up on Isla Sorna AKA Site B. That is when the Spinosaurus from Jurassic Park 3 will return and confront the campers. I certainly hope this rumor is true because we have not seen this animal in 20 years. I also hope we will see it in Jurassic World: Dominion next year.
While writing The Kaligen Experiment, I decided to do something that has not been done very often in the dinosaur genre. I decided to make one of my fictional dinosaurs a species of Therizinosaurus. It will have the same basic body design of Therizinosaurus, but it will have a number of features and traits that make it stand out of the crowd. I have done this because I do not think that Therizinosaurs get enough spotlight compared to other dinosaurs.
Throughout my science classes in elementary school, I was taught the six stages of every experiment: the question, the research, the hypothesis, the experiment, the analysis, and the conclusion. As such, the plot of The Kaligen Experiment will be divided into six acts, each one named after a certain stage in an experiment. The story will start with the question and end with the conclusion.
