Now available: Tales From the Guild: Music to Your Ears

tales coverThe first FWG anthology, Tales From the Guild, Music to Your Ears, is now available from Rabbit Valley!

There are few things in this world that can invoke the range of emotions that music can. It can bring its listeners close together; it can drive its listeners apart. It is a core mechanic in what makes us human, but what about in those that aren’t quite human? Tales From the Guild, Music to Your Ears features a collection of stories from veteran and newcomer authors alike that span several universes but show that no intelligent creature is immune to the power of music.

Featuring stories by Furry Writers’ Guild members:

  • M.H. Payne
  • Mary E. Lowd
  • Huskyteer
  • Sean Rivercritic
  • Mark Neeley

And soon-to-be members:

  • Mars
  • Nathanael Gass
  • Jess E. Owen

  1. Yarst! It’s published by Rabbit Valley. I would gladly review it for Flayrah if it was published by FurPlanet Publications or Sofawolf Press, which send me review copies of their books, but Rabbit Valley will not. Is there any way that I can get a review copy from the FWG?

  2. Grump! Sean says that Rabbit Valley won’t even provide authors’ copies. He has to buy them personally from Rabbit Valley to send each author a copy. On all of the anthologies that I edit for FurPlanet Publications, FurPlanet sends each author a copy along with the payment for the story.

    1. (This is Poetigress, by the way.) I haven’t spoken with Sean on this myself, but from what I can gather, it’s possible that may be something specific to his publishing agreement with Rabbit Valley just for this particular anthology. It’s entirely been his project, though, so I don’t know all the specifics personally.

  3. Yes! I received my review copy of this today (yesterday, now). Thank you, Sean, for buying it for me. If anyone else contributed to the cost, thank you, too. Flayrah is updating slowly currently, but I’ll review this as quickly as I can.

    One quick question, though: this is “Copyright © 2014 by Rabbit Valley Books”. Not by the individual authors?

    1. That copyright was probably an error, I’m thinking, assuming it doesn’t also list the individual stories with author copyrights, but I’d advise contacting Sean directly to clarify.

  4. I always insist that my publishers send me EVERYTHING for proofreading; not just my own text. You’d be surprised how many spelling and other errors there are in the publishers’ boilerplate, and even in the jacket and back-cover blurbs.
