Two strong women fought the enemy in a long, brutal and seemingly hopeless ground war for years, until the Chinese finally blinked and went back home. Now these two realize that they must fight an even more cynical and devious enemy in order to bring America back from thirty years of chaos. But this new enemy is their own government, and its omnipotent media syncopate, the Network. Puss and Boots are legends in the Army for their kill-skills and when they finally accept their new mission, they get help from their old comrades-in-arms, as well as a few new and different friends. The White House and the Network elite are not pleased with Puss & Boots’ decision and disruptive actions, therefore they begin to take counter-measures…

Oct 4, 2009"Puss & Boots in the 23rd Century" This book puts the action in unique situations of both physical and social restraint to elevate this far beyond typical post-apocalyptic Military-SF. One of the very few contemporary SF novels that demonstrates real knowledge of tactics & ordinance, Native American culture, and Paleolithic man.
Jul 7, 2008"Puss and Boots in the 23rd Century" This is not a typical easy breezy sci-fi read. The characters are still being developed well into the 800 plus pages. Dialog and proto-language abounds. The bad guys are gone and the good guys have turned bad. Oh, yeah, and there are two hot chicks who see way too much of each other in their process of improving the macro-situation. It is a profoundly satisfying read. Parts are a page turner, parts are re-read to get the hidden points. Serious readers need apply. This book screams for a "Part Two".
Jun 20, 2008"“Get hard girl!”" This guy did his homework. Well researched and reasoned. “It starts now.” .M.
Apr 8, 2008"Puss and Boots in the Twenty Third Century" Puss and Boots in the Twenty-Thrid centry, is the first of a series of post-apopoylptic, WWIII scenarios, and tells the story of two very _strong_ heroines and one very _unlikley_ ally. Boots, who is Bold, Big, and Brave, is an extremely competent warrior. Her strengths include the abilibty to see events stragecally...though, never let it be said that her tactics lag behind. Puss, (who is Boot's friend, compatriate, and lover), is equally important, both in her Amer-Indian trained ability to hunt, and in her ability to think tactically. And, unexpectectly, and perfectly, Bila, the hunk from the Cro-Magnum age, is both their equal, and in some cases, their mentor. America has fallen under military rule. The NET rules the world, and placates the mindless. This trio, despite multil-millenia social logstones, manages to itenerate the defeat of Evil and the restoration of the Constitution. America, as originally conceptuallized by... More > their founders, founds a strong base of support within the story-line, and within its development. No longer can the "Net" placate the mindless with increasingly pornographic and violent presentations. _Some_ people _think_. And as they think, they _see_. And with their sight, the restoration of the Constitution of the United States is required, no less than the initiaition of the Declaration of Indepencence. Remember "Boots as Boss" and Puss as "Pussy Footing". The intitial chapters of this book require strict attention, as the author's viewpoint swittches frequently from one character to another. As you advance in the story, however, both characters become unique, and special, and with the inclusion of a time-traveler, vastly more interesting. (Confession) I could not read Huck Finn by Mark Twain, because the dialect threw me off. In Puss and Boots, I had to perservere through the first two chapters, because the military shortcuts and the advance in time threw the dialect off enough that I had to slow down and think. Let me tell you now. This is a wonderful story. Once you get the hang of the dialect, it becomes one that you can't put down. I read Puss and Boots in the Twenty-Third Century in one day. And I wanted the next snippets, immediately. Enough, said. Buy this book.< Less
