Smucky the Cat, He was Obediant
One small Maine town. One big rambling house near a two-lane highway. One family with small
children and a cat. An occasional speeding big truck. One Micmac burial ground. Possible Wendigo.
St. Elmo’s fire. Seductive promises. Ungodly temptations. Bad synergy.
- For Kirby McCauly
- Louis Creed, who had lost his father at three and who had never known a grandfather, never expected to find a father as he entered his middle

his father relatively late in life.
