Four Legs in the Morning: A Short Story by Norman Prentiss

This eBook includes the first of three Dr. Sibley stories contained in the print edition from Cemetery Dance Publications:

Four Legs in the Morning
By Norman Prentiss
Featuring Illustrations by Steven C. Gilberts

A Signed Limited Edition
Available in 2011 from Cemetery Dance Publications

Dr. Sibley, long-standing Chair of the English and Classical Literature Department at Graysonville University, has outlasted many of his detractors. In this collection of three linked stories, mysterious consequences await those who defy or disappoint him:

• a new colleague, whose avant-guard theories offend Sibley’s traditional critical sensibilities, uncovers a new answer to an ancient riddle (“Four Legs in the Morning” THIS STORY APPEARS IN ITS ENTIRETY IN THIS EBOOK)

• a student plagiarist learns to regret his dishonesty (“Flannel Board” THIS STORY APPEARS IN THE PRINT EDITION AND IS NOT IN THIS EBOOK EDITION)

• a young administrator attempts to curtail some of Sibley’s power, until he discovers the fate of his predecessor (“The Mask of Tragedies” THIS STORY APPEARS IN THE PRINT EDITION AND IS NOT IN THIS EBOOK EDITION)

All of these characters eventually learn—sometimes too late—that Dr. Sibley may be far more powerful than he seems.
