“I very much like seeing how the characters, the stories and the author have evolved since the first book and am looking forward (as always) to the next one. Quite unlike any horse- or space-operas I’ve read (and there have been many), this series may well be a new genre — or at least a significant sub-genre.”
Action. Adventure. Danger. Intrigue. Sex. Romance. Cussin’.
Our heroes, the MadDog Clan, are all war veterans. Tough, strong, armed and dangerous, ready for the unexpected. Usually. Sometimes the unexpected kicks you in the ass, and hangs you out to dry.
Annie, a veteran of the Dinosaur Wars on Triassic, has flashbacks to her teenage warrior years. An old nemesis revisits, causing trouble for Wolf and the rest of the clan. Life isn’t easy on the Rock.
Annie Talks To Horses tells us a tale fraught with humor, danger, intrigue and sexy men. Some of our heroes are rock walkers. They travel across space and time. They are also cowhands, and gun hands, walking the fine line between freedom and death.
You will laugh, love and sometimes shed a tear with our motley crew in this adventure series set in the cowboy future.

What used to be countries and cities on Earth? The citizens of the most popular have moved out and pioneered their own planets. For gambling, try planet Vegas or its smaller sister world, Reno. For sexual adventures, try Fantasyland 3000. I heard a rumor that there is an Atlantic City out there, too, boardwalks and all.
Britannia is the seat of the Brit Empire, one side of the planet has the American colonies. The other New London.
