Wolfies Wolfies Wolfies! An Entire Pack!
Is it any wonder that Wolffy’s Book Den is littered with books about wolves, for wolves, and even by wolves? (And dogs, their cousins, of course!) Perhaps you’ve met Lord Tyee, the wolfish K9 who thinks he owns the place, and Wolffy, his human pack leader (who really does own the place)? Then there’s the new addition to the Pack, a border collie pup, Sirius (the Dog Star) Li. Yes, seriously, we love all things K9. Like this Pack of local books, each of which touches on the wildness, wisdom, and witchery of wolves.
Appalled by the news story of the dogwalker who left six dogs in a hot vehicle, Lord Tyee had to warn dog-loving humans with his own version of the story in Hot Dogs. He sets this “cozy mystery” (as they are called in The Biz) in the unique town of Owl River, a place you humans might recognize. “I never smelled it coming,” he begins but soon finds himself trying to outwit his captors in time to do battle at the side of his beloved Pack Leader. $18.95
Lord Tyee has dug two wallows near the Book Den, one for each of his next two Lord Tyee Mysteries. Stay tuned. And please bring bones or sugarless treats on your next visit to the Den, eh?
Kaimana Wolff’s first wolf dog, Amaruq, also wrote a book, How to Keep a Human. ($17.95). In five linked, goofy stories, Amaruq tells how he fell in love, went to university and taught the professors a thing or two, saved his Pack Leader from freezing in the Yukon’s True Woods, saved her from a horde of die-hard home invaders, and became the King of Dawson City.
In Stranger Skies, Katje van Loon kicks off her second series on a world where humans lash out at witches, wolves and anyone who’s different. The True Woods still exist, but wolves have lost faith in Silva, their goddess, in their despairing struggle to survive mindless violence. Silva’s fall from grace leaves her in this alien land, bereft of followers and trapped in a mortal body. Should she strive to regain her godhood or accept mortality and find love? “Rattling good speculative fiction!” $19.95
Katje van Loon’s sharp, witty micropoems in Rewolfing the Soul nip at our Achilles’ heels, insisting we pay attention to the plights and pleasures of the Millennial generation. With spare but accessible design enhanced by simple but symbolic graphics, this lovely book is a hymn to the moon and the earth. The poems demand the return of the birthright of all young beings–the right to an authentic life, to run in company as honorable as wolves. $19.95
