We've been making some interesting progress on research on AF over at Goodreads, as well as an *unknown* sequel to Outback. I'll throw more out here tomorrow (I'm ready to nod off shortly) but wanted to start this thread in case I forgot. Pester me if I don't come back here. As for the unknown sequel?
From Wayamba Station...
One of my pals just got her hands on a copy so I'll let you know when I hear anything.
OK, so the big mystery on Fletcher for the intrepid detectives at Goodreads was to find out who he was. No one at HFO had anything (very surprising), and I even tried the ask a librarian option at my library's website. They didn't find much of anything. No bios, no website, no nuttin'. After I discovered the Capricorn book with the Outback tie-in Laura at Goodreads went hunting and found this,
Voila: Dana Fuller Ross is the pseudonym of James Reasoner, Noel B. Gerson, Aaron Fletcher and Amanda Crowe, best known for there Western historical fiction. They have written a number of series, including the Holt Series, the Wagons West Series, the Wagons West Trilogy and the Wagons West Empire Trilogy. Ross has also written a book based on the Walker, Texas Ranger television series.
Here's the series listing from Goodreads, and Capricorn people is not there, even though the cover says it's a sequel. From looking at his book listing he's written some western themed books as well.

Oh, wow, I never would have known Dana Fuller Ross wrote these. I wonder if her Wagons West series is much different from these books...
Where does "The Capricorn People" fit into the series? Is it a 7th book in the series? Or, maybe an alternate title for one on the list? I've been confused about this series because there are no copies of Outback II for sale anywhere and it sounds like "Outback Station" is actually the 2nd book in this series.
This is the list from FF:
I think either Linda or Kelly is continuing with this series, maybe they can tell us where this book you found fits into the series.

Valli, AFAIK Outback Station is book #2 and I have read that. It isn't exactly a *sequel* more than a different POV with new characters interacting with characters from the first book. Michele (A Reader's Respite) just got her hands on Capricorn people and I'll let you know what she says. I'm wondering if the Outback II mentioned at FF is the Capricorn book.
Here's what Fiction DB lists for Fletcher, http://fictiondb.com/author/aaron-fletcher~2521.htm
Do you have Outback Station? I still have a copy in the box and can post to your WL if you're wanting it.
