These three stories are three parts of a novel Ellison has said he would write about Vic and Blood (Blood’s A Rover). “A Boy And His Dog” adapted into the film A Boy And His Dog (1975) directed by L.Q. Jones and starring Don Johnson.
“A Boy And His Dog” is continued in Vic And Blood #2. Both issues of the series were reprinted in color in the NBM volume Vic and Blood (1989) and the iBooks collection Vic And Blood: The Continuing Adventures of A Boy and His Dog (2003).
