Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Bergmann’s Equestrian Venture is the 4th book in the nine-book series. Earth was spared the brunt of a comet-induced planet-wide winter by the Striver-led, Banderat-implemented, redirection of three comets. Bergmann’s Team played an important part in that cometary redirection. Now the Team has been invited to move a small herd of horses to the planet Baldon: Banderat would like to ride! This venture is the first feat Guy hopes to execute in his long-term plans to forge an extraterrestrial Human presence.

The interstellar trip aboard Climber, a first for Humans, is a prelude to their successful arrival at the city of Bandalu, where they help finish an equestrian resort. Nita’s ‘surprise’ is a shock to all the team: the first Human child to be born off Earth. A family of Sayen reveals their presence to Guy, Nita, Greg and Raquel, on the mountain slope above Highlands Resort. The presence of a hidden seventh sapient race sends Shockwaves through the Concordat.

George Pinneo, creator of the “Bergmann’s Venture” hard science fiction books   George Pinneo, an army-brat, lived in 4 states and 8 different locations during WWII and immediately after, before entering 4th grade. He grew up in Ohio, graduating from Case Institute of Technology with a BSChE in 1959. The 45 years of his technical experience focused on microelectronic materials and process engineering including a successful semiconductor manufacturing start-up in Hollywood FL. This author of several technical papers and holder of 6 patents, loves to hear the phrase: “you can’t do that!”   Family vacations have taken the Pinneos from Alaska through Canada, Hawaii, into Mexico and the Caribbean, with one sojourn to Western Europe, enlivening their summers; they’ve visited 6 Canadian provinces, 11 Mexican estados and 49 of the 50 states. He has no intention of visiting North Dakota! His family lives in Manhattan Beach, CA.   His hobbies include sailing, canoeing, snorkeling, and hiking. Not long ago he earned a private pilot’s license and then built an all-metal, 2-seat experimental homebuilt airplane which he enjoys refining. A memorable flight took him from Corona CA to Oshkosh WI: 1,700 miles each way, to visit the annual EAA fly-in.   A glimpse into his notions of what constitutes “good science fiction” would include solid engineering principles based on hard scientific fact, sometimes extended in a linear manner to anticipate ongoing work not yet published. Magic and fantasy have no place in “hard” science fiction, although they can be entertaining.   In terms of philosophy, he believes books should teach: not only new words, sometimes precise new words, but also examine new concepts. “Good” science fiction should also be uplifting, positive; Bujold showed it could also be romantic in her “A Civil Campaign”.   He now resides in Overgaard AZ in the high Mogollon Rim country of Central Arizona.
