Well that deadline went whooshing by for me o.o Going to still work on my idea as I'm able in case there's a sequel though.  I'm pretty excited about it.

Yes, there will be a sequel.  FurPlanet Productions was hoping to get about 20 stories, adding up to 120,000 to 150,000 words.  We got almost 40 stories adding up to over 260,000 words.  So we're going to publish two anthologies; the first for Further Confusion 2017 as planned, and the second for either Anthrocon 2017 or FC 2018.

All the stories will be paid for now.  A little less than half the writers will have to wait a while longer to see their stories in print, but they won't have to wait to get paid.

There's a little room left in The Dogs of War II, or The Dogs of War: Aftermath, or whatever we call it -- not enough to put out a call for more submissions, but if anyone has an idea for a story that they didn't have enough time to write, or wants to write a second story, we can probably fit it in.  Please let me know.

We got stories from the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore (hi, MikasiWolf), and one arrived just before the deadline from Ljubljana, Slovenia.  Is this the first furry story from Slovenia?  MikasiWolf is the only author (so far) to have stories in both anthologies.

Hooray!  Stories for the second The Dogs of War anthology have now been received and accepted from Alice "Huskyteer" Dryden and Jaden Drackus. 

Does anyone else still want to submit a story?  Please contact me.  It hasn't been decided yet whether to publish the second anthology for Anthrocon 2017 or for FC 2018.  That will depend partially on how well the first anthology at FC 2017 in January sells.  You have until at least the end of 2016 to write something.

Second stories by writers in the first anthology will be accepted, but only one story per author in the second anthology.

I do believe it is. As far as I'm aware, I'm the only furry writer in my country.

Also, this was a great experience and a fun project to do! :D

Thanks!
I'm actually surprised that my country is larger. From the handful of furs we have here, I'm certain that I'm the only writer :P

Slovenia is certainly larger than Singapore. 

I remember the 1995 World Science Fiction Convention in Glasgow.  Most of the U.S. s-f fans attending it considered Scottish food inedible.  (For instance, the Glaswegan version of "French-fried potatoes" was raw potato strips swimming in vinegar.)  Someone discovered a Slovenian-ethnic restaurant in Glasgow.  We ate it out of food over a weekend.
