Shore Leave 39 Guest: Howard Weinstein

Howard Weinstein

Howard Weinstein's new novel Galloway's Gamble will be coming in September 2017 from Five Star Publishing, one of the most prolific publishers of historical/western fiction.

            Inspired by high-spirited classics like Maverick, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Sting, Galloway's Gamble is an Old West coming-of-age romp about bickering brothers Jamey and Jake Galloway, who grow up to be poker players in 1860s Texas. Can these two young gamblers outfox a ruthless cattle baron bent on destroying their Texas hometown-without getting themselves killed? Galloway's Gamble is the first of a possible series.

            Other historical fiction on Howie's project list: a mystery about a con man and a wrongly-disgraced cop who team up to solve high-profile crimes and embarrass the corrupt police department in 1870s Baltimore, and a Christmas time-travel tale set during the Great Depression.

            Howie's most recent Star Trek story is "The Blood-Dimmed Tide" in Star Trek: Mere Anarchy. Other credits include "The Pirates of Orion" animated Star Trek episode; many Star Trek novels and comics; and Puppy Kisses Are Good for the Soul, a charming account of life with his legendary Welsh Corgi, Mail Order Annie.

            Howie also runs Day-One Dog Training (, using Annie's valuable lessons to help dogs and humans have the best possible life together. Dog lovers can find Howie's Life with Dogs blog at, and writing news at
