Bio’s (Fiction) 1992 [Yet to be Published]
Bio’s was a fictional novel about a military police investigator who upon investigating a homicide in Southern California, stumbles upon a hidden government program from the Vietnam War. The scientific program, first creating bioengineered military working dogs for warfare, progresses to creating a small group of bioengineered soldiers.
Hruby based the book upon seeing the last bioengineered, military working dog, left over from the Vietnam War, kenneled at Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton, California in the early 1980’s. Hruby stated that the dog looked like no other he or others had ever seen. Its eyes were abnormally gray/green in color and it was known by all handlers as the most vicious dog they had ever worked with.

“The Battle of San Pasqual – Search for John Cox” chronicles the true story in San Diego, California, of the first official battle of the U.S. Army on California soil during the Mexican War in December of 1846. In less than an hour, the battlefield would be littered with American and Mexican dead. Historian George Hruby recreates a minute-by-minute account of this famous California battle and reveals exactly where it occurred across the floor of the San Pasqual Valley including never before known facts and discoveries of the event.
“For those with a passion for minute-by-minute accuracy on the history of a military battle; its place, time, strategy, errors, casualties, and precise location of events … most certainly, this has been accomplished by the San Pasqual Battlefield Site Location Project. With their years of intense research, field surveys, and their sharing with both private and governmental organizations, they have in effect, rewritten the Battle of San Pasqual as we have known it.”
Historian – Tom Cook Former President of the San Pasqual Battlefield Volunteer Association
”Eyes of Blue – The Final Victim of Jack-the-Ripper” is a recreation of the last night in the life of Mary Jane Kelly, the final victim of Jack-the-Ripper. It gives an hour-by-hour account of her movements and actions on the final evening of November 8th, 1888, into the morning of November 9th when she is killed. The account, although conjectural in nature, is based on 1st hand witness information, police documents including inquest and coroner’s report, and some 2nd hand reporting based on newspaper accounts at the time. Like almost all Jack-the-Ripper articles and books written on this subject, some of the findings presented are in the opinion of the writer and may differ from some other versions presented. The following presentation is based on investigative and historical research experience and background of its author.
“Midnight on the Custer Battlefield” is a haunting and dark reveal into the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Follow a minute-by-minute account of this infamous battle including illustrations and photographs that put faces-to-the-names of those involved in this historical and tragic event. Historian, George Hruby, gives a compelling commentary of his thoughts and views concerning this battle. He dares to broach such taboo topics as Monahsetah, Custer’s Indian wife, as well as to who may have been responsible for an unmentionable mutilation to Custer’s body. He delves into the mysterious twenty-to thirty minute pause by Custer and his men during the heat of the battle, giving new insight into what most likely was the cause. Also, how Custer most likely died at the Battle of the Little Bighorn which is far removed from the spectacular portrayals often shown in the movies. He leaves us with his conclusion on what really happened that day between the Indians and the soldiers, and why?
