    Ethical Aspects of Animal Husbandry
    by Craig Terlson

    A collection of short stories where the humour runs dark and the slipstream bubbles up.


    ...imagine if Raymond Carver called up George Saunders and Joe Lansdale, and they all went drinking with Neil Gaiman.

    “… it's clear that Terlson is way ahead of the curve in terms of crafting an engaging premise that reaches for elevated territory and reinvents enduring archetypes of action and suspense.”  J. Schoenfelder

    "Sometimes brutal, often demanding and always complex, this novel will repay the reader who likes their assumptions challenged and is happy to walk away from a book with minor questions unanswered but the big ones definitely dealt with! It’s likely to satisfy those who enjoy Hammet and/or Philip K Dick and who like their fiction very noir indeed."   Kay Sexton


    "I love a novel that you can't put down, and this is one of them."  L. Cihlar


It's been a long road back

Back to the blog, and back to other things too. If you have been visiting woofreakinhoo lately, you will have noted my absence. Chances are, not many of you have been visiting - and that's ok, because I haven't had much to say.

But I wanted to let you know that there is some news coming - exciting stuff - that I will post about very soon. And that announcement will ressurect this blog to it's old glory.

Glory? Well, how about I'll just start posting again. The new blog will shift the focus a bit.

Stay tuned to twitter (cterlson), or just come back and visit. I know, I know, I've said this before... but this time it's for reals.



As in a tumbleweed slowly goes across the screen.

Quiet. Too quiet out there Ricco.


Edit, and then edit some more.

Kinda absent at the old blog here - spending all my writing time editing the new novel. Someone made the comment recently that it must be like writing a thesis.

Yeah, but even more so because I have to interest people in reading it (bam - sorry about that).

I'll keep you posted.


Lunch Money

Just as a follow up to the post below... I did actually squeak another win in the Oscar Pool - going 15/24.  A few twists and turns messed me up (Stallone??? What happened?). I went back and forth on the Best Pic, between Spotlight and the Leo show.

But somehow, I edge out the group that was at 14 - and went home with the lunch money.

One of these years I need to put real money down, in Vegas, or wherever they take those bets. Right. And that will be the year I get nothing. 

Thought the show was really tight, and Rock rocked, as did Louis CK. A lot of movies I need to go see, and a new found appreciation of Lady Gaga (another wtf was the sad James Bond song winning).

Until next year.


Oscar pool time

Been away from the blog for a bit, jumping back in for my annual Oscar picks. I've been known to win this pool (a lot) so the pressure is always high. I haven't seen as many films this year, but as I've come to understand, that doesn't really matter.


So let's see...


The Revenant - cuz Leo, and Bear sex, and lotsa hype

Acting - 

Leo is a lock for Best Actor in Revenant.

Brie Larson, "Room" Best Actress

Sylvester Stallone, "Creed" Supporting Actor (another lock)

Kate Winslet, "Steve Jobs" Supporting Actress - this is an iffy one.

Director - 

Alejandro G. Iñárritu, "The Revenant"

Writing (the most important one)

Original - Spotlight  (Wild card: could be, Inside Out - not because it is the best, just cuz)

Adapted - The Big Short - it better, because it is the movie of the year


Inside Out (duh)

Animated Short

Don Hertzfeldt’s minimalist masterpiece “World of Tomorrow" (so says my son)

Foreign Language

Son of Saul


Amy (a fave in the media) - though I really liked What Happened Miss Simone)

Short Doc

Body Team 12 (complete guess - ebola - so yeah, probably that)

Live Action Short

Shok - another guess

Techy stuff


Revenant - more pretty pictures of Leo and Bear in love


Cinderella - because, uh, Cinderella

Flim Editing

Big Short (cuz I loved it) (Mad Max could pick up here though)

Make Up

Mad Max starts the sweep here

Production Design

Mad Max


Ennio for Hateful Eight (about time)

Sound Edit

Mad Max

Sound Mix

Mad Max


Gaga - and I don't even know the song - but she will win. Cuz: Gaga

Visual Effects

Mad Max (Sorry Star Wars, but no)


Place your bets... and good luck in your pool.
