FurPlanet Productions is announcing its next original short story anthology:The Dogs of War
; an anthology of furry military-themed stories.
Deadline: October 1st, 2016.
Wanted: original short stories (no reprints) featuring furries in military situations, preferably of 4,000 to 20,000 words. Lesser will be accepted. Longer … let’s discuss it.
These can range from actual warfare to peacetime training-camp scenarios (which may be humorous) to recruiting; from large division operations to small commando actions. They can range from funny-animal multispecies armies to armies of one species versus another; from fighting in animal civilizations to uplifted animal soldiers fighting in human wars.
The emphasis should be on military action, not politics; but as Clausewitz defined war as “the continuation of politics by other means”, a story may be heavily political as long as military action is at least threatened.
Despite the title, which is a Shakespeare reference (to Julius Caesar
), we want stories with a variety of anthropomorphic animals; not just dogs.
Authors who want to contribute are urged to check with me (Fred Patten) first to make sure that story ideas are not too close to others already approved.
Payment: ˝˘ per word upon publication and a contributor’s copy of The Dogs of War
, a $19.95 anthology. Contributors may buy additional copies at a 30% discount.
