Ernie Grant is a decent guy, a bit of a desert rat who works at a scrap yard where he has to put
up with racist comments from his crass, bullish boss. The boss works by night as a self-proclaimed
Minuteman protecting the U.S. borders from the influx of illegal Mexicans. Ernie and his friend
Salvador also search the desert at night, but they carry food, water and blankets to help the
same travellers in the unforgiving desert.
One day a mysterious stranger shows up at the scrap yard, unable to speak, but willing to help in more ways than one.
Yellow Dog was the Christmas chapbook from 2007 (cover at right). The edition from
Subterranean Press is printed in two colors throughout, with a cover and
several interior illustrations by me.
Yellow Dog is available as a chapbook or a hardcover from Subterranean Press.
