* NightmareFuel: Mainly in the books' highly detailed illustrations of evolved and genetically altered human/animal species. One notable species is called the Tic; a human with an ''organic'' version of the cybernetic cradle the Hiteks get around in. They're completely dessicated humanoids whose organs are constantly failing, so they replaced them with artificially grown organs. It was simply more convenient to grow entire organic exoskeletons. They are not a separate species from the Hitek, their technology is simply more advanced. In addition, many of the creatures appear as if someone needs to call in [[{{Halo}} Master Chief]] and have the whole planet nuked from orbit.

* CreatorBacklash: Dixon is [[http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/tetrapod-zoology/2014/04/04/an-interview-with-dougal-dixon/ not particularly fond]] of the final version of the book, possibly because he originally wanted the book to have a completely different plot (see What Could Have Been below).



* ScienceMarchesOn: For starters, the species Dixon notes as the first human, ''Ramapithecus'', was later found to actually be an earlier-discovered species called ''Sivapithecus'', an early relative of the orangutan, not humans. Oops. Still, his description of an early proto-human still holds water.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The book was originally supposed to be a direct sequel to ''AfterMan'' involving human time travelers colonizing the book's far-future NewEden and killing everything, but this was changed due to ExecutiveMeddling. Dixon himself actually had very little to do with the final product apart from lending it name recognition.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The book was originally going to have a completely different plot, involving time-travelling humans from our era colonizing the world of ''[[AfterManAZoologyOfTheFuture After Man]]'' and eventually turning it into a dystopian world, exploring the effects of overpopulation and pollution on the planet.

* UnfortunateImplications: It's not that difficult to read a lot of the early sections (especially those dealing with the Hitek and Tek) as an AuthorTract advocating [[TheSocialDarwinist eugenics]].
