Guild News: July

I know a lot of our members — especially the editors and publishers — are busy gearing up for Anthrocon, so I’ll keep this as short as I can. Happy travels to all heading to Pittsburgh, and may you have awesome sales, a great time, and a lack of con crud!

New Members

Welcome to our newest members, Roland Jovaik and Gene Breshears!

Member News

Among the many releases from FurPlanet for AC is ROAR #5, which features stories by several FWG members, including Searska GreyRaven, Mary E. Lowd, Ryan Campbell, Huskyteer, Sarina Dorie, H. A. Kirsch, Ben Goodridge, NightEyes DaySpring, and Roland Joviak.

Check out Mary E. Lowd’s “Weremoose” in Untied Shoelaces of the Mind.

Huskyteer also has a poem in Apex and a story in Heat #11 (another issue that features some familiar names — you’ll also find stories there by members Tempe O’Kun, Whyte Yoté, Dark End, and Kyell Gold).

Bill “Hafoc” Rogers’ story “The Language of Emotions” has been featured on the Anthro Dreams podcast. Give it a listen!

Also new from FurPlanet for AC is James L. Steele’s novel Huvek, as well as the anthology Anthropomorphic Aliens (edited by associate member Fred Patten).

Besides the new issue of Heat, Sofawolf Press’ Anthrocon debuts include new novels from Kyell Gold (Uncovered) and M. C. A. Hogarth (The Godson’s Triumph).

Finally, Rabbit Valley brings us Alflor Aalto’s latest, Stories From Lakeforest U.

Sean Rivercritic has this update on the first FWG anthology, Tales from the Guild, Volume 1: Music to Your Ears: “All finalized items are to the publisher. Just have to put it together and confirm release dates.” Watch this space for updates!

Members, now’s a great time to freshen up your bio pages. Just email new bios and/or pictures to furwritersguild (at)

We’re always open to guest blog posts from members! See the guidelines here.

Want to hang out and talk shop with other furry writers? Come join us for the Coffeehouse Chats, Tuesday evenings from 7-8 p.m. Eastern in the forum shoutbox. It’s an informal way to check in with your weekly writing progress and goals. And if you’ve got something you need a beta for, we now have a critique board in our forum (you’ll need to be registered with the forum in order to view it).

That’s it for this month (and thank goodness — that was a lot of links). As always, email furwritersguild (at) with news, suggestions, and other feedback, or just comment here.

One last question…

Which of the new releases are you most looking forward to reading?
