Anthony Neil Smith is an asshole. He is Herman’s master, but he’s not dead. Just a story, people. He’s the Director of Creative Writing at Southwest Minnesota State University, and the publisher of PLOTS WITH GUNS. He wrote some novels: PSYCHOSOMATIC, THE DRUMMER, YELLOW MEDICINE, HOGDOGGIN’, and an e-original called CHOKE ON YOUR LIES.
Herman is the inspiration for Herman Dog. He probably would gnaw on his master’s cold, dead bones. Otherwise, he’s a sweet pup. He’s half Boston Terrier and half French Bulldog. He likes kibble, giant cow bones, and big dogs.
