This story was published about a month ago, but I haven’t gotten around to posting about it until now.
A previously unpublished story is now published at Perihelion, free to read, and it even has an illustration. It’s the story of Gunther the Dachshund who is one of the first and most public recipients of the Awakening procedure that allows animals to talk. He’s become a canine rights advocate since the procedure, but now it appears that someone is making an attempt on his life. Gunther and his agent (formerly his owner) Daniel must solve the mystery of who tried to kill him.
If you get a chance to read it, do let me know what you think.
