Wish List Wednesday is a weekly meme I started in July '09, in which I put the spotlight on a book that is on my wish list--whether new release, blast from the past, or hidden gem.
I love dogs. Who doesn't, really? Cat lovers, and we all know how devious they are. Aside from atheists and environmentalists, is there anything worse than a cat lover?
Seriously though, I do like dogs and when an author can tap into my "I Heart Dogs" mentality, they have a good chance of turning me into a fan. It worked for Dean Koontz and his book Watchers. Read that book that tell me Einstein isn't an awesome dog.
Well, Jack Ketchum has a book about a dog that he wrote back in the eighties that I would like to read. It's called Red, which is the name of the dog I believe. This is Ketchum though, so he just has to go for the jugular. You see, the book isn't so much about the dog but its elderly owner who goes effing postal when some teenagers kill his faithful companion, Red. What's worse than a cat lover? A dog killer, that's what.
Anybody else out there a dog lover? Think you could make it through a horror novel in which the dog doesn't?
