Short Story Press Presents Off His Leash by Brandon Dowless
Randall cannot remember a day in the last ten years that he has not spent beside his canine friend, Eduardo the Magnificento, or Ed. Ever since Rand found the pup nestled against a hot-water pipe, the two have been inseparable, spending countless hours together wandering through the woods on adventures, some make-believe and some real. But now, Ed's gone missing, and Rand takes it upon himself to seek out his four-legged friend. Unfortunately, the hunter loses his friend's tracks amongst those of a much more sinister type, ogres.
Rand assumes the worst, and gets himself into a very difficult situation involving ogres, clubs and, “tush paper”? Will Rand rescue or even find his friend? Or will he be the main entree for an ogre village that's already whetted its appetite with canine? The resulting story is one of friendship and resolve, irony and heroism, and mud. It might not make you laugh, but you'll smirk a few times, as the lives of Eduardo the Magnificento, Randall and a group of unsuspecting ogres become intertwined.
And there's a twist at the end you'll never see coming! Or you might. Just act like you didn't, it'll be a lot more fun.
