About this book. Back in print for the first time in over a decade, and featuring a new introduction from the author and updates based on scientific discoveries made in the 37 years since its initial publication, this new edition of Dougal Dixon’s lavishly illustrated speculative zoology imagines the strange creatures that might evolve in a distant future after the extinction of man.5/5(1).

After Man: A Zoology of the Future is a book by Dougal Dixon. He presents his hypothesis on how the fauna and geography will change 50 million years from now.

They’re not just giant flightless bats – they’re giant flightless bats from the future. Speculative zoology more or less went mainstream in with Dougal Dixon’s After Man (Dixon ). In the early s, the author Dougal Dixon published a cult book called After Man: A Zoology of the Future, which imagined what life would look like millions of years from now.

Dixon envisaged shrews that use their tails as parachutes, flying monkeys (or “flunkeys”), super-long coiled snakes that strike out to snatch birds mid-flight.
