The author had me at “tennis ball.” I love dogs, and Warning Signs is delightfully and convincingly written from the point of view of a dog. The writing’s filled with that sweetly different sensitivity to light and shade, to smell and nature, and to the permanence and unchanging comfort of home. But a thread of danger quickly wakens... something the dog can sense that the owner can’t. The dog, with infinite patience, accepts the owner’s rebukes and tries, still tries, so desperately tries to save… Ah, if only we listened better to our pets, to our better halves.

Beautifully channeling the thoughts of a dog, scarily creating the nightmare threat of “something” in the dark, and building tension through love and attention to detail, John Grover creates a truly scary and intriguing short story in Warning Signs, another short story and truly enjoyable snippet from his Creatures and Crypts collection.

Disclosure: I bought a free ecopy of this tale and thoroughly enjoyed it.
