December, 1945. Phosie Mae Eaton leaves her home in Galveston, Texas, to visit her son, Will, a wounded U.S. Marine fresh from combat on Iwo Jima, now in a Los Angeles military hospital. Even as a Southern black woman familiar with the evils of segregated society, Eaton is stunned to discover that racial rules and regulations extend to war heroes. She finds that they are kept in a separate house from the white soldiers, banned from receiving whites' blood transfusions and aren't allowed basic amenities, such as coffee, from the Red Cross. She finds Will balancing precariously between life and death, as the gunshot wound in his stomach has festered and become infected. Doctors usually treat such infections with an easy injection of penicillin, but the hospital has no 'colored' needles due to their treatment of venereal-disease cases (which have skyrocketed due to postwar celebrations). Eaton strives to help her son in any way possible and, in order to stay in California, takes a job as a maid for a wealthy and eccentric Jewish family.

In 1999, Underworld's Karl Hyde began writing a public diary. Every day since then, Hyde has documented his thoughts, lyrical works-in-progress, poetry, and biographical essays alongside "found" visuals. For the last sixteen years, these entries have collectively created an on-going, utterly unique monologue on Underworld's website. "I Am Dogboy" handpicks a selection of diary entries and rearranges them to create an autobiographical narrative that takes Hyde from childhood through to the exploratory early years of Underworld, an electronic act who have been peerless for the last 25 years. Spliced throughout the narrative are standalone/abstract poetic pieces that offer occasional snapshots of life on the road and in the studio and give an insight into Hyde's singular style of lyric writing. The book is beautifully designed by John Warwicker Hyde's long time collaborator and co-founder of the Tomato collective. Karl Hyde and John Warwicker have previously published the typographic books "Mmm... Skyscraper I Love You" and "In The Belly of St Paul." "

Haunting, varied, and superbly written, Dog Boy and Other Harrowing Tales is a collection of stories immersed in the Gothic tradition yet told in a modern and inventive way. At the end of the First World War, a group of friends gather at a former Robber Baron estate on Eastern Long Island, only to learn the house holds a monstrous secret. In a Montana prison in 1988, a new dog training program goes awry with horrifying results. A Parisian cemetery in the mid-20th century is home to the ghosts of two centuries of poets, artists, and composers, the specters of a homeless woman's past, and the jolting reality of the modern world. Knitting together the ordinary, the extraordinary, and the supernatural, Dog Boy and Other Harrowing Tales is a boldly imagined literary work by a masterful new storyteller. "At a time when most authors of contemporary literature seem obsessed with humor and shying away from documenting the painful aspects of our existence, Erica-Lynn Huberty [has written] a book of stories whose immediate goal is not to entertain or humor us, but to liberate us from this desire..." —Mohammed Naseehu Ali, author of the Prophet of Zongo Street "... a distinctly American investigation of the emotional corners into which people retreat to pass their lives..." —Hilary Thayer Hamann, author of Anthropology of an American Girl In Dog Boy and Other Harrowing Tales, Erica-Lynn Huberty reminds us what fiction is all about: beautiful writing, vivid characters, and an imagination that truly soars. A remarkable debut." —Ann Hood, author of the Knitting Circle and Comfort
