I can accept that the Sun Dog is some sort of other worldly entity who reaches our world. But exactly who or what is the person taking pictures of the dog, whose legs and shadow are visible in the photos, and whom the dog seems to be turning around to attack. And where is this place which the beast comes from? If I could ask Mr. King anything, I'd ask him these questions. I know he is a big fan of Bradbury, who often offers no explanation of what transpires in his stories, and employs the same methods in some of his own tales. But still, I'd really like to know a bit more about that supernatural photographer being attacked in the photos.

I am a big fan of King's works, but I didn't get the ending to Sun Dog. He says Kevin has a debt to pay and will be crushed with the interest. Maybe I totally missed something, but what debt is that? Why was the dog attacking him in the first place?

It was your first story that i read. I was just 15, like Kevin. And shortly before it our family purchased Polaroid camera too. ha-ha, after perusal I was REALLY scared every time, when my dad made photographs on it. This great mystical story with especial atmosphere has begun my big love to your books. Thnx, Mr. King! Al, (Russia)

I thought this story was great. Mind you, i don't know how people think this is very scary. john Travolta shirtless is scary, not anything i've ever read by Mr. King.

The Sun Dog actually freaked me out. Impossible? I thought so, but it happened. I too have a fascination with odd pictures, and paintings that change. This story is amazing, and it reaches to the deepest part of the psyche, ripping a hole that spews fear and darkness. Mr. King is a genius of the macabre, and the twisted. Bravo, sir.
