Buffalito Destiny
by Lawrence M. Schoen
The first Amazing Conroy novel from  Lawrence M. Schoen.

"As bizarre dreams guide him inexorably towards a mysterious destiny,
Conroy deals with prophetic aliens, ancient Mayan ruins, exquisite
sandwiches and the temporally-unstable state of Texas. Part crisis-filled road
trip, part gonzo race against time and all tongue-in-cheek humor and charm,

A former stage hypnotist, the Amazing Conroy really just wants to have a
good meal. He’s now the wealthy CEO of a company that leases buffalo
dogs, alien creatures capable of biting into and devouring nearly anything.
When he attempts to implement a solution for cleaning up massive industrial
waste sites, Conroy becomes targeted by ecological terrorists who resent the
use of alien technology (living or otherwise) to heal the Earth. But
kidnapping and the destruction of his corporate headquarters are the least of
Conroy’s problems. An unknown, telepathic intelligence has begun invading
his dreams, warning of geological disasters that hinge on what Conroy does
next. Further complicating his life are several groups of aliens, each believing
that he has a special destiny to fulfil, though they don’t necessarily agree
what it is. Accompanied by his pet buffalito, Reggie, Conroy must elude
terrorists, confound alien zealots, withstand temporal distortions throughout
the former state of Texas, and explore ancient Mayan ruins. His adventures
will result in his reunion with a long dead relative, a chance to experience the
world’s greatest sandwiches, exposure to alien bliss, a battle with a
megalomaniac on the slope of an active volcano, and a trip to the asteroid
belt for a final face-to-face confrontation with the creature that had been
invading his dreams. Somewhere in the midst of it all, he has to find his true
