"The Dust of 100 Dogs is complex and dark (though with flashes of humor). But it's also unique and rewarding, written with a distinct voice, and featuring two very strong-willed female characters. Try this one out on fans of pirate stories, historical fiction, and even YA problem novels. It is not to be missed."
The Dust of 100 Dogs is finally available for purchase (it was scheduled for 2/1/09, but it appears to be available for order now).
