The Good Pup

A Novella by

Hugo Best Short Story (nominee)
Nebula Awards Best Short Story (nominee)
A summer rainstorm, a speeding car, and all that's left for Romer Wills and his family is to build a coffin and hold a funeral for their beloved Pup so the children can feel they've done the proper thing. And that would be that, but three nights later something scratches at the door. Pup has come back from the dead, and with him have come happiness and rejoicing, trouble and sorrow, miracles and dark deeds.

The Good Pup was a finalist for the Hugo and Nebula Awards for Short Story. It originally appeared in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, edited by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, in March 1993.
