  1. Awesome clip … my son particularly loved King Alfred. Sad to see Fido go – but that’s life.

  2. Glad to hear your son enjoyed it. If I see Prince Albert again, I’ll let him know he has an Australian fan base. A lot of people are sad to see Fido go, myself included.

  3. It reminds that even in this brave new world of digitial publishing and all the boundaries which Fourth Fiction is pushing, readers are still ultra conservative in many respects, and anything too different is considered “too hard” or “unworthy” – both of which are plain lazy. Fido had lots of important and interesting things to say and I’m with you in saying he will be missed.

  4. Really disappointing to see Fido go. For me personally he was in my top three and I would have liked to see him given the chance to develop his story.

  5. What a disappointment… I can’t believe Fido got more votes than Tuck, outrageous!

  6. It will be interesting to see how the votes are proportioned.

  7. seldom seen

    so, offing Fido is a start. it was a foolish new age version of the lady and the tramp. or was it the fox and the hound? where the red fern grows? either way he had to go. and i must have missed the “important and interesting things” he had to say. seemed like a bunch of bad dog puns to me, and i’ve got better things to read. but it is getting interesting, and i like what i see.

  8. I’ll be in transatlantic transit for the rest of the day so I won’t have Internet access again until 11 or 12 tonight EST (barring delays). I won’t be able to publish Nora or Fyor’s responses before then, even if they’ve been submitted.
