Fellow Star Trek author Dayton Ward praises Galloway's Gamble as "a rich, layered story where the characters leap off the page. Extensive research infuses his tale with authenticity." In Galloway's Gamble 2, after friends are swindled out of a champion racehorse by ruthless rival Cortland Van Brunt III in fog-shrouded San Francisco, bickering brothers Jamey and Jake Galloway lead the gang on a star-crossed transcontinental quest: Can they reach Baltimore in time for a long-shot bid to win back prized stallion Phoenix in a grudge-match race at the splendid new Pimlico Race Course?

Howie's writing credits include dozens of Star Trek novels and comic books; "The Pirates of Orion" animated Star Trek episode; story-development assistance on Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home; and Puppy Kisses Are Good for the Soul, a charming account of life with legendary Corgi Mail Order Annie.
