Spoiler alert. There’s a psychopomp scene in Of Mutts and Men (the next Chet and Bernie novel, now available for preorder – save your receipt in order to get the special short story). There can’t be many psychopomp scenes in mystery fiction – this may be the first! – although the Greeks had them in their myths, of course.

    Good morning everyone. We have large white flakes falling out of the sky .
    It must be snow but it won’t stick the ground to one.
    Psychopomp? We will learn more later.
    Have a really good day.

    Very interesting, especially now that I know what “psychopomp” means (having checked it out with my good friend Google).

    Wookie and Teddy’s Paw, now we know what it is too. Should be interesting .

    From two Greek words meaning “soul” and “conductor.” Interesting. I’m wondering whose soul is being conducted in the new novel.

    Good morning all.

    Today is Bellestarriswonderful Day (a.k.a. my birthday). That Damn Pixie says I’m 12 today, whatever that means. I don’t trust her with math or snacks and especially not glitter.

    Happy birthday to Belle! You are a special girl. Remember the first time we met you several years ago at Snowhook kennel. You are a special gal indeed!

    Happy birthday, Belle Starr! Just one point of clarification. I thought every day was Bellestarriswonderful Day, not just your birthday. Just saying . . .

    W&Ts Paw: Right you are! I am wonderful everyday!

    Hobbitz: Baby donkeys of my very own? You shouldn’t have! I love them! I will call one of them Pancho Jr and Lefty Jr.

    Happy Birthday Belle Starr! Yes, you are wonderful every day.

    Psychopomp! Not sure why but I keep reading it as psychopoop.
    Thanks to BStover for the Greek meaning of the word: soul conductor. I like it.

    Hobbitz: You give the best presents!

    We are just pleased that Belle Starr believes the world needs more Pancho and Lefty on the world. Beau sees things differently. Luckily, it is not Beauiswonderful Day.
