    1. It is a daunting task to envision and illustrate a brave new world during a new era in a brief novel and only highly skilled authors can manage it in a convincing style. Famously, of course, George Orwell accomplished this literary feat in "1984" and "Animal Farm" with a dystopian view which has served its readers well in shedding light upon the behaviors emergent of a government of ruthless tyrants. In this Sci-Fi Noir, Anderson's erudite literary voice morphs skillfully from that of a Voltaire [...]


    2. A detective story with a real difference cattle are in control of earth and no meat is allowed to be eaten . Planke is an ex detective and know a private investigator and his side kick is a pig . Cattle are developed and have human Hands transplanted or grown on and alcohol is synthetic but someone has killed a young developed heifer and planke is employed to find her killer. Along the way he is kidnapped with a scientist that started the development and falls for a developed ewe as he delves de [...]

That said, the actual story told here, about a gumshoe on a murder case, is just decent. Unfortunately, the twist can be seen right when [...]


    6. Synopsis: Gary Anderson sets a dark mood in the US, year 2049. At this point in time bovines have become intelligent and hold a high amount of power and influence in politics. This power has lead to changes in the lifestyles and habits of the common person, such as dietary restrictions (meat-eaters beware: we will all be vegetarians in the future) and the prohibition of using grain in the production of alcohol. Other former barnyard animals (e.g. pigs, sheep, and goats, oh my!) also have the sam [...]
