The Heart of Dog


The Heart of DogFirst Released: Various publisher anthologies

Short Stories from the Backlist
Ed. Doranna Durgin

The Heart of Dog includes Doranna’s various backlist dog stories, and that’s all it was initially meant to include–until her dog-loving writer friends heard about her need to fund expensive veterinary treatment for her beloved young companion and dog sports partner, ConneryBeagle. In short order, the book filled out with nine more stories, all from wonderful authors.

The stories encompass a range of genres and moods–plenty of humor, plenty of sweetness and satisfaction, and above all, a profound understanding of the Heart of Dog.

Author Friends of Connery: Jeffrey Carver, Julie Czerneda, Tanya Huff, John Mierau, Fiona Patton, Jennifer Roberson, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, & John Zakour (x2!); graphic artist Pat Ryan, and production assistant Tom Powers. Connery himself has been on social networking since the day he left the litter, and is on Twitter, LiveJournal, and FaceBook as “ConneryBeagle.”
