About the Author
Greg van Eekhout is an American fantasy and science fiction writer born and raised in Los Angeles. Following his professional debut, a story in Starlight 3, he published a couple of dozen stories, appearing in most of the genre's major science fiction magazines, several anthologies, and a number of Year's Best compilations. His story "In the Late December" was a Nebula finalist, and his first novel, Norse Code, came out in 2009. For fun, Greg practices Northern Shaolin kung fu and indulges his love of little tacos.
Reviews

"Van Eekhout gives readers both a redoubtable human protagonist who shows hidden depths of courage and resilience on the way to an ingenious resolution, and a canine one who is at once irresistibly winsome and terrifyingly destructive (not unlike many nonmythical dogs)." -- Booklist (starred review)

"In this Rick Riordan-esque epic, modern and ancient worlds collide in a vividly sketched adventure that begs to be adapted for the screen. Thrilling and touching in equal measure." -- Kirkus Reviews
