    My other novel is a sci-fi steampunk Civil War fantasy where the CSA discovers a lost world of dinosaurs in the swamps of Mississippi and Louisiana. They outfit them for war and turn the tide against the Union with Robert E Lee marching into DC riding a Tyrannosaurus rex. Lincoln calls upon his best friend Karl Marx and together they drive back the CSA and their dinosaurs in steam powered mech suits.

    Guns of the South. Might be one of the worst books I’ve ever tried to read.

    Just finished reading this book. Probably one of the better books I’ve read in a while. Not perfect but definitely unique and a fun read.

    Galaxy Blues by Allen Steele


    This is the 5th of 7 Coyote novels I own... ok where to start.

    We follow a new character who is a political refugee from Earth... and a huge baseball fan, and they do play baseball on Coyote. The Colonial University Battlin' Boids ( Beak'em Boids!) played the Peoples Enlightenment Through the Spirit of Social Collectivism University Fighting Swampers - LOL The Swampers sucked because they choose their starters by who is the most politically correct

    anyways back to synopsis - This book is by far the weakest of the 5 Coyote books I have read. Steele crutches on what has always been a total turnoff for me. The 50s SciFi cheat of psychics. I mean uuuuggghhh REALLY Allen!


    anyways that aside the story was essentially an introduction to Steele's version of the Federation of Planets....


    I mean I will read everything Coyote because the first 4 books were a complete story and were pretty real amazing. Totally recommended but this thing... man its only for the fans...

    if this story was the first Allen Steele I had ever read it would be the last Allen Steele I ever read
