ASTONISHING PROOF-POSITIVE OF FIRST CONTACT?
“I smiled with every page. This collection of whimsical fables, fun and fantastic, can be devoured in one sitting. From the sladlours, to the frupnids eating garshun seeds, to the enthused trobligors and the arguing cojolitors—a great romp. And it deftly answers that burning question: Just how many toes does a fekkerash have?”
— Jean Rabe, author of the Piper Blackwell mystery series
"Those looking for literary proof of alternate quantum timelines will find ample evidence in Dexter Dogwood’s Fables From Elsewhere. The stories are compellingly crisp and charmingly imaginative, as are the illustrations. Dogwood’s work will appeal to those who enjoy Italo Calvino and Stanislaw Lem. Critter-driven, world-building morality tales from another universe yet … (sometimes disturbingly) resonant."
— Rick Kleffel, “The Agony Column,” California Public Radio
“Fables like you’ve never experienced before from a world you never even imagined—a place strange and alien, yet familiar. These charming stories beguile and entertain, disturb and comfort. They’ll change your perspective (and your life) for the better.”
— Stephen D. Sullivan, award-winning author of Manos: The Hands of Fate.
“Aesop, you’ve met you match in Dexter Dogwood, who is either a visionary author or an ingenious de-coder/translator/transcriber. The lessons that this book offers to humankind—and that humankind had damned well better learn!—ring as true as any that the Ancient Greek fabulist imparted. Moreover, these tales aren’t ‘just’ smart, savvy, entertaining, thought-provoking, relevant and beautifully composed; they’re also moving. Head and heart are both fully engaged. About to read Fables from Elsewhere? Lucky you!”
