“It puts a wonderful new twist on the venerable Laika story and
is a great read. I recommend it highly."

            -- Chris Dubbs, co-author of  Animals in Space

“... it is a remarkably empathetic and poignant work and I appreciate the wise  female perceptivity that pervades it throughout ...”

   -- Chris Carey, Aerospace Historian

"... a dog story for adults as well as children, a political and feminist allegory couched in an almost fairytale style, a rare combination of genres .... SCREWED POOCH is a literary tour de force and a good read for anyone with curiosity about how our world first ventured into space and what it cost us to achieve that mission."

- Joseph McBride, author of What Ever Happened to Orson Welles: A Portrait of an Independent Career
