    Pulp-action alt-history with cowboys and hippos

    An enjoyable pulp-action romp through an alternative history version of the 19th Century Missippi, featuring a diverse cast of characters and hippopotami. If you like Western style stories; heros shooting faster than their own shadow, poker games, riverboats, people out for revenge, etc; but always thougtt they'd be better with people riding on hippopotamusses (or didn't realise until now that they would be better with hippos), then this is the book for you.

    A delightful premise and an enjoyable read

    A delightful premise, a diverse cast of characters, and a heckuva lot of interpersonal conflict made this novella an enjoyable read. It’s basically a Mississippian western with hippos. A southern? It’s also a caper plot, something that the characters debate at length, much to the reader’s amusement. Winslow Houndstooth once had a hippo ranch until it was burned to the ground with his beloved hippos inside and he was forced to leave that idyllic life behind and resume a less reputable one. He’s taken on a commission from the government to blow up the dam that keeps feral hippos trapped in the Mississippi so that the river can be reclaimed for travel and commerce. The owner of a riverboat uses the ferals for his own nefarious ends, however, and he’s not interested in letting Houndstooth and his crew achieve their goal. And Houndstooth has ulterior motivation: the riverboat owner is also the man responsible for the destruction of his ranch. If he and his crew complete the commission, he can also exact his revenge.

    Action and Adventure in Wild America with Hippos

    An imaginative romp through an alternate American south in the 1800s full of rogues, swamps, rivers, and teeth. A land where a man, or woman, loves their hippo as much as any cowboy ever loved their horse.
