Shore Leave 40 Guest: Howard Weinstein

Howard Weinstein

After four decades spent peering into the future in his many Star Trek stories, Howard Weinstein's newest novel turns to the past - Galloway's Gamble from Five Star Publishing, award-winning and 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 and shady banker bent on destroying their Texas hometown - without getting themselves killed? With its sharp commentary on our very own 21st Century foibles and failings, Galloway's Gamble is the first of a possible series - and Howie is working on the sequel.

Howie's most recent Star Trek story is "The Blood-Dimmed Tide" in Star Trek: Mere Anarchy. Other writing 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. You can find Howie's writing news and blog at, and dog training info at
