My favorite literary canine, Oberon, the Irish Wolfhound, is finally getting his own story. Oberon is the ancient Druid Atticus O’Sullivan’s Irish Wolfhound sidekick and is a prominent feature throughout the Iron Druid series, offering important insights and comic relief.
In the novella The Purloined Poodle, Oberon discovers that a prize winning poodle has been abducted in Eugene, Oregon. The poodle’s disappearance is not an isolated instance, instead it is part of a pattern of dog abductions all over the Pacific Northwest. With the police uninterested in the case it is up to Oberon to enlist the help of his faithful Druid to track down the dogs and reunite them with their owners. For Justice! And Gravy!
Oberon and Atticus must travel throughout Oregon and Washington to question a man with a huge salami, thwart the plans of diabolical squirrels, and avoid, at all costs, a fight with a great big bear.
The novella will be released September 30, 2016 in a hardcover edition, and will contain illustrations by Galen Dara. I honestly can’t wait for this novella to be released.
