Dan H. Kind writes irreverent fantasy fiction and the occasional horror. He lives in the colonial capital of America with his lovely wife, beautiful daughters, a beagle with allergy issues, and a crazy dachshund puppy. He appreciates well-cooked tofu, but don't send him any.
When Prince escapes from the backyard fence during a 4th of July party, the Mitchell family figures the beloved family dog will be back after he has his fun romping about the woods. And Prince does return, with greenish goop foaming from his pulsating jowls. And then hell straight out of a creature-feature breaks loose in the Mitchell family's once-idyllic household.
