25 Curly Canine Tales, Old and New

Robert Reginald (Edited by), Mary Wickizer Burgess (Edited by)

Almost everyone likes dogs, even those who prefer cats as pets. So it’s not surprising that writers have devoted a great deal of verbiage indeed to describe their ongoing love affair with the canine breed. You’ll find herein all kinds of tales focusing on dogs: science fiction stories, mysteries, horror tales, westerns, memoirs, humorous accounts, and first-person doggie narratives. There are well-known pieces by writers such as Jack London, James Oliver Curwood, Washington Irving, Saki, E. C. Tubb, John Gregory Betancourt, Robert Hood, and Jack Dann–and stories by authors who are relatively unknown today.
