The Kromlau Gambit

‘Severed of flesh and earth, the dog’s soul remembered. It remembered wolf and jackal. Becoming rage and anger, it remembered death carried in saucer eyes and cunning carried in seven tails. It remembered howling the hunt while wearing clot red ears, and circling those found outside the boundary fence. And as it remembered, the dog’s soul attacked every muscle, organ and ligament inside Papa Yaga.’
