Former Brookline Poet Laureate and fellow Bagel Bards member Zvi Sesling reviews my short story anthology, A Home for Laika and Other Tails on the Boston Area Small Press and Poetry Scene at: http://dougholder.blogspot.com/2021/11/a-home-for-laika-and-other-tails-by.html.
I’m holding the book proof for my new short story anthology, “A Home For Laika and Other Tails” (sic) from Big Table Publishing, coming soon to Amazon and other online stores.
“The thirteen charming and funny stories in Phillip Temples’ collection show us that we humans have much in common with our best friend, the dog. We find stories of canine treachery, jealousy and prejudice as well as cunning and bravery. This timeless collection follows the history of man/dog relations from the days of cave-dwellers to space travel and teaches us important lessons about our pets and ourselves. I highly recommend this book for anyone from 6 to 100 years old (and for dogs of all ages).” –John Cuetara, Mixed Messages & Away with Words
Coming in the fall of 2021, from Big Table Publishing: A Home for Laika and Other Tails is a chapbook collection of thirteen stories featuring mankind’s faithful, but often-times annoying four-legged canine companions.
Some of these stories have appeared in: Boston Literary Magazine, Ariel Chart: International Literary Journal; and Potluck.
