October?

Story time, huh?

Okay, here’s one that has only appeared in Polish—

–but you will be able to read it in English next year in NEW MOON ON THE WATER from Full Moon Press.

Which doesn’t mean you can’t read it now.

In English.

right here.

BONDS

Perhaps all cats are telepathic, but Lyra, yellow, with six toes on her left hind leg, was especially so. Robert decided, one day, that Lyra had mentally told him to kill his wife, Ellen.

So Robert seized Ellen by the throat, and began strangling her.

Ellen could not yell. She could only think.

At which time Maxwell, the Rottweiler, with a forehead that wrinkled when he was alert, bounded into the room. First he bit out most of Robert’s throat. For good measure, Maxwell then snapped Lyra in two.

Perhaps all dogs are telepathic, but Maxwell was especially so.
