Slowly, almost impossibly, a great beast emerged from the gateway.
Three huge canine heads arose from the red light, and enormous paws
thrust forth to drag the great beast into the dorm room. There was barely
room for it to fit, and I found myself nose to nose-nose-nose with an
absolute monster of a dog, one that radiated sheer metaphysical mass and
I leaned forward carefully, sniffing at the central head. Three heads
sniffed back, taking in my scent before they focused on me, and then a
deep, resonant voice sounded clearly in my mind.
“Please excuse my intrusion. I am here looking for Mouse Dresden,”
the beast said, politely enough.
