Stuff: Is your dog a werewolf?

I'm currently reading Toby Barlow's Sharp Teeth, the newest entry into that curious subgenre of high-lit horror that's home to such books as House of Leaves, Demon Theory, and Raw Shark Texts. Sharp Teeth is, I kid you not, a free-verse epic poem about werewolf gangs fighting for territory in modern Los Angeles. A full review should be forthcoming. In the meantime, check out Barlow's site for an important public service announcement.

You should also check out the neato animations that various folks have made to illustrate short passages from the text. It's fun stuff.

I don't recall you having any pets.. May pick up a little critter to warm the house ?

Or are you worried about work-dog ? (Does May's store have a work-dog as well ?)

Nope. No pets at home. I'm a little allergic so, until we've got a bigger pad, no pets for us.

I'm just civic minded, I guess.
