Congratulations to Lawrence M. Schoen on his Nebula nomination for Best Novel for Barsk: The Elephants’ Graveyard!

The anthology Cats and More Cats, edited by Fred Patten and featuring stories from members Clare Bell, Mary E. Lowd, and Renee Carter Hall (among other authors), is now available from FurPlanet.

In webserial news, Patrick “Bahumat” Rochefort has completed From Winter’s Ashes, and Frances Pauli continues with her two anthro-themed webserials The Earth Tigers and Much Ado About Bluebottles.

Renee Carter Hall has just launched her new blog Three From Waynesboro, about her experiences as one of the 13-year-old girls who wrote the story that became the Tiny Toon Adventures episode “Buster and Babs Go Hawaiian.”

Elsewhere on the Internet, check out this interview with Tristan Black Wolf, a personal essay from Bill Kieffer on Our Queer Stories, and Dronon’s review of The Furry Future.

Congratulations, everyone!
