About…

This website may be getting a little confusing for the uninitiated. Essentially it's the official outlet for two unrelated novels. IMPERIUM LUPI - a dieselpunk, anthro epic, the first of which is predominantly about packs of wolves and hyena clans. DOGS of MARS: DFTM - a classic retro sci-fi starring anthro dogs of various breeds.... Continue Reading →

What is DOGS of MARS?

DOGS of MARS: Dog from the Machine is a retro sci-fi novel set in a parallel universe where dogs evolved to the heights of humanity instead of our simian ancestors. Though much of our universe is present and recognisable, everything human is canine. There are many dog races to be found, including huskers, shibans, dobers,... Continue Reading →

By the Same Author

What is Imperium Lupi?

Imperium Lupi loosely translates as 'Empire of Wolves', but the title also alludes to the wonder mineral 'Imperium' which powers the advanced societies that have sprung up on the world of Erde. Erde is populated by various anthropomorphic races, some great, others meek. Imperium Lupi focuses on Lupa, an oligarchical city-state of many diverse beasts... Continue Reading →

Chakaa Madou

Madou Jua-mata is a Chakaa, the hyena equivalent of the wolfen Howlers. Taught to fight and wield imperium by the great Prince Noss himself, young Madou is stronger and wiser than a hyena his age should be, and brave to a fault too. Like most hyenas on the Lupine Continent, Madou strains under the crushing... Continue Reading →

X-DOG BIO – Ben 02

The first X-dog of the second generation, the appropriately dubbed Benjamin 02 came after Shep 00 and Ash 01. To create a yet stronger X-dog, Olympus Tech abandoned the trusty Alsatian breed and built an Akitan, blessing him not only with great technical expertise, but the physique of a god. With Ben it was back... Continue Reading →

X-DOG BIO – Einen 08

Einen 08 was built upon the Bryce 07 body-plan. When their skill-sets and test results are compared there is little to distinguish them except their breeds. They even share the same boisterous attitude, though Einen is notably quieter, yet somehow less obedient, than Bryce. Just can't shake that husker blood, perhaps. On closer inspection it's...

X-DOG BIO – Toby 09

Like Rai 10 and Einen 08, Toby 09 is a late model and arguably more successful for it. He is what many of the tech-orientated X-dogs that preceded him were supposed to be; the culmination of their sufferings and sacrifices. On paper, Toby's P.T. and physiology are nearest Hugo 05's, but with the brakes applied... Continue Reading →

X-DOG BIO – Hugo 05

Hugo 05 was meant to be the ultimate X-dog, and very nearly is. Technical across the board, he covers most bases, a one-dog engineering and computer-science lab. Hugo's also a capable soldier. Using a beefed-up Shiban body plan, O.T. created a compact super-marine, small, agile and strong, requiring less calories than a larger breed of... Continue Reading →

X-DOG BIO – Dexus 06

A survivor by X-dog standards, Dexus 06, or this iteration of him anyway, has been around since the early days when Sasuke Hattori first resurrected the project. He has witnessed most of his comrades die at least once, usually multiple times. Dexus' longevity is especially ironic since he is unable to feel pain. Despite dozens... Continue Reading →
