Why not let Queenie and Arthur entertain them? Ruff vs. Fluff and Paws vs. Claws are both available, and Paws vs. Claws is coming in October.


The Iggy Papers


March 24th, 2020 Posted 7:50 am

We’ve had some questions about the title of the new Chet and Bernie short story that will go out free to all who preorder the next novel, Of Mutts and Men. The title of the story is The Iggy Papers (not The Iggy Chronicles Vol.2). Sorry for the confusion – although Iggy (Chet’s best buddy) and confusion go together. To all who preorder – save your receipt. The publisher will have a page set up where you can send it in early April. They promise the process will be smooth!

Let’s hope, when this is over, historians will be able to look back and at least say it was a unifying event. While it’s not true in this case that all we have to fear is fear itself, there’s still a lot of virtue in staying calm. In that spirit, here’s the first of our new feature, Sunny Mondays – snippets from the bright side of the Chet and Bernie novels:

We were on the job, trailing some woman whose name I’d forgotten. She’d led us out of the Valley to a motel in a flea-bitten desert town. That was what Bernie called it – flea-bitten – but I felt no fleas at all, hadn’t been bothered by them in ages, not since I started on the drops. But the funny thing was, even though I didn’t have fleas, just the thought of them suddenly made me itchy. I started scratching, first behind my ear, soon along my side, then both at once, really digging in with my claws, faster and –

“Chet, for God’s sake.”


(No) Beginnings


March 22nd, 2020 Posted 8:16 am

Normally on Sunday we do beginnings, taking a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker. But instead (hat tip Ben Judah) how about this? Perhaps it will remind readers of the Chet and Bernie novel Paw and Order.
