Writer Howard Weinstein is embracing both the past (tackling a historical fiction instead of science fiction) and the future (as a co-founder of internet-based publisher Crazy 8 Press).
The past: Howie's planned new novel Galloway's Gamble will mix a splash of Maverick, a dash of Lonesome Dove and a dab of Deadwood in a rollicking story about young brothers Jamey and Jake Galloway. Born to gamble, they must survive harrowing adventures as Civil War Johnny Rebs, Union Army Indian scouts, cowpunchers and riverboat gamblers -- and learn to battle bad guys with wits instead of weapons -- if they're to stop land-grabbing cattle baron Viktor Krieg from destroying their hometown of Serenity Falls, Texas.
The future: Launched in 2011, Crazy 8 Press has already published assorted new works by co-founders Peter David, Michael Jan Friedman, Bob Greenberger, Glenn Hauman and Aaron Rosenberg. Get all the latest Crazy 8 news at www.crazy8press.com.
Howie's most recent writing includes a feature article about his 1986 behind-the-scenes visit to the sets of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home in Star Trek Magazine (issue 38). His most recent Star Trek fiction was "The Blood-Dimmed Tide," in the giant Star Trek: Mere Anarchy trade paperback, six short novels telling one epic tale spanning 30 years of Original Series history.
Among Howie's varied credits are "The Pirates of Orion" animated Star Trek episode, seven Star Trek novels, three V novels and 65 Trek comics. Other books include the updated Puppy Kisses Are Good for the Soul, Howie's heart-warming account of life with his wonderful Welsh Corgi, Mail Order Annie; and a biography of New York Yankees star Mickey Mantle.
Howie also runs Day-One Dog Training (www.dayonedogtraining.com), celebrating 15 years of using Annie's valuable lessons to help dogs and humans have the best possible life together. Howie and his wife Susan lost their two beloved 16-year-old Corgis Mickey and Callie in 2012, but they hope to have a new puppy soon.
