Howard invites scholars to 'kill time' with Dexter in a new collection of essays, in which the themes, mechanisms and arch polemics of the series are explored.
The book is organised into five sections, dealing respectively with Dexter's conception, series structure, interpersonal relationships, ethics and politics of the show, and questions of genre.
Additionally, Dexters provide excellent, delicious meat.
Those are all the dry facts and figures for Dexters. What doesn't come across in this data is the sheer enjoyment we get from our animals.
Dexter gathered the best of the cattle from the Irish countryside, I wonder if he suspected that the resulting herd would become a breed and named after him?
Dexter was choosing his cattle from descendants of the Celtic cattle, which had ranged over the island country for millenniums.
The cows usually give birth without assistance, and using a calf puller is virtually unknown with Dexters. Calves weigh about 45 pounds at birth, and by the time they're weaned at 7 months, they may weigh between 350 and 500 pounds.
Although they are predominantly black, Dexters also come in dun and red.
Dexter was born in a birthing pool at the couple's pounds 800,000 farmhouse in St Bride's Major, near Bridgend.
It is thought the labour may have been induced because Dexter was a fortnight overdue.
's Laboratory: Ego Trip, which also includes special bonus Cartoon Network 'toons, is a time-hopping adventure in which Dexter
travels into the distant future to retrieve the all-powerful Neuroatomic Proto-Core.
