The Dogs of War was a short story released by Candy Jar Books in 2015.

Publisher's summary Edit

The London Event was only the beginning, or so Colonel Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart believed. Until he was ordered to meet with Air Vice-Marshal Ian Gilmore. It began in 1963 – for Gilmore, at least. But the alien codenamed Cosmic Hobo visited Earth a lot earlier than that.

It's not only Lethbridge-Stewart who wishes to learn the truth of these visits. He is being watched, and soon Lethbridge-Stewart and Gilmore find themselves in the deserted tunnels of the London Underground chased by a familiar furry form...

  • Army files assume that the Second Cosmic Hobo and Seventh Cosmic Hobo are the same person ("Cosmic Hobo"), based on their descriptions, and (now they know he's a time traveller) that the First Cosmic Hobo may be an older version of the same man. It's also believed other versions are other agents using the same alias.
  • This story is set three days after the events of PROSE: Beast of Fang Rock.
