Every dog has his story

THERE WAS A MAN who had a dog who had–for the good part of every day–never heard of H. P. Lovecraft, though this dog enjoyed his Will Cuppy, always licking his chops over the line, “The nuthatch cannot sing and does not try.” . . .

The stories are beautifully set, the artwork is delicious, and zounds! Each story is also presented in an audio version. "Ibsen" highly approves of Bruce L. Priddy's reading of "The Dog Who Wished He'd Never Heard of Lovecraft", and who am I to disagree?

Thanks, Mike, for giving me the opportunity! Writing this was so much fun, it must be illegal.

Tell "Ibsen" I said "thank you" for his approval of my reading. I am proud and humbled at the same time.

Dear Anon. Thanks muchly! So happy you loved this shaggy tale.

And Bruce. I looked all over for your private email so that I could send you a personal note of thanks. So this is wonderful that you've dropped in here. We both love your reading, and the best thing is that we can listen to your rendition at any time now, even the most dark and stormy night. It's a great privilege to have one's story read, and to have it read by someone who throws himself into it, shows in every nuance of your timbres.
Drop me a line if you would care to. I'd love to encourage your artistry.

It's so cheeky and cool that your story in a Lovecraft antho is about a healthy hatred of Lovecraft.

Such a great story - I loved how chthulhu becomes a sympathetic character...
