Dean Ing Synopses: Cathouse by Dean Ing is a novel in the multi-author Man-Kzin series. Carroll Locklear was stranded on a planet with Kzinti. He hadn’t planned it that way; what sane human would want to be trapped cheek by furry jowl with a bunch of homicidal bearcats? But when he was taken prisoner, somehow the subject of Locklear’s likes and dislikes never came up, and now he finds himself stranded on a planet of prehistoric Kzinti. To survive he must find common cause, if not with the males then with the females of that antique species.

Butcher Bird is a standalone title by Dean Ing. Learning of the existence of a strange hunter-killer aircraft that strikes down men in the Middle East before moving to the Western Hemisphere, a U.S. intelligence team must discover who is in control of it before it finds itself the next target.
