Above is ye colour version of Gwabryel's illustration for my sequel to "The Hound," "Some Distant Baying Sound." Below is me with mine beloved hound, Buster. Ghostboy and I got him from ye pound in 1995, when the doggie was three months old. The boy got bored with the dog, complaining that he was "stupid," and so he gave the beast to me. I bonded with that animal as I have never bonded with another mortal, and we had ten wonderful years together. I miss the mut ferociously.
