Years ago I read Vacuum Flowers and loved it — it was, and remains, one of my favorite cyberpunk novels. I remember believing at the time that Swanwick was a mysterious author; I heard a rumor about a sequel to Flowers but nothing else.
The other day I ran across The Dog Said Bow Wow in the library, and now I suspect that, as usual, I simply did not pay any attention to developments in the SF publishing world, but instead just believed I would somehow know. Most likely (continuing my tradition: I didn’t look), Swanwick has had a robust and verbose career.
Anyway, Bow Wow is a series of delightful short stories. I read it in one sitting. You probably will too.
