Mike is based in California and is the editor and publisher of Prehistoric Times. As a boy he loved collecting dinosaur models and he had his love of dinosaurs reawakened when he purchased a small dinosaur model collection on a visit to a local antique shop. In 1993, Mike founded Prehistoric Times magazine with his friend and fellow collector Riff Smith. Unfortunately, Riff passed away suddenly on May 21st this year. He suffered a fatal heart attack. Although, the Everything Dinosaur team never had the chance to work with Riff his enthusiasm and sense of humour was well known amongst the dinosaur enthusiast fraternity.
We first came across Mike nearly ten years ago, through a mutual acquaintance Dana Cain, who along with Mike published a book on Dinosaur Collectibles. Our copy of this book sits on a shelf in our office, it is surrounded by lots of other books on dinosaurs and prehistoric animals that team members have collected over the years.
Mike is also a freelance writer, he has a number of major credits to his name, most of them to do with dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals. Prehistoric Times goes from strength to strength, issues are purchased by subscribers from all over the world. We subscribe and we have never had a problem receiving our copies. Everything Dinosaur staff have even contributed the odd article and picture from time to time.
If you want to keep up with the fascinating subject of dinosaur memorabilia and also read a digest of the latest palaeontological discoveries then this is the magazine for you.
