Book of the Month: Claw the Way to Victory

claw coverFebruary’s Book of the Month, Claw the Way to Victory, is edited by Sean Rivercritic of AnthroAquatic and includes stories from several FWG members.

We’ve all watched sports played by humans, or have participated in sports with our human limbs and senses.

What would happen if the sporting events we loved were played by animal people?

Claw the Way to Victory looks to answer that question with a variety of stories, each showcasing a different sport and just how the instincts of an animal matched with the intelligence of a human can help or hurt a player.

Scratching? Biting?

Against the rules?

Not this time.

  1. I have two stories on offer in this collection of anthropomorphic sports stories:

    “After The Last Bell’s Rung”: A retrospective on the life and character of a champion Texan pro-am boxer, a water buffalo bull who was the wrong species to go pro. A touching character study that reveals there’s much more to the people of boxing than what happens in the ring.

    “Eight Seconds and the Grace of God”: In a world where the rodeo is re-envisioned for anthropomorphic species, steer riding has transformed into an acrobatic explosion of competitive pick-a-back parkour. When a local Albertan good-ol’-boy butts heads with the son of an American rodeo legend, fists and dust fly, and pride is on the line. In the end, there’s only way to settle things: In the rodeo ring, with nothing but eight seconds and the grace of god between them.
