Infurno: The Nine Circles of Hell
« on: January 26, 2017, 03:04:59 PM »
Thurston Howl Publications is now accepting submissions for its third furry anthology, Infurno: The Nine Circles of Hell.

Deadline: August 1, 2017
Word count: 2,500-8,000; a little above and a little below will be acceptable

The Nine Circles of Hell has been a much-loved conception of the inferno, popularized by Italian poet Dante. Look here for the basic elements of the circles: This collection will be divided respectively into the nine parts. We expect stories to be framed to focus on people who will end up in a specific circle. Most of a story should focus on what they did back on Earth in life. Showing how they died is not required. We need to see their sin that brought them there, and you can definitely have them in hell (always fun to describe; in general, try to keep infernal descriptions consistent with Dante's). We want to see anthro-animal characters at their darkest and weakest moments: at the whorehouse, at the chopping block, in the morgue, in the dining room with the candlestick. It is perfectly fine but not required if submissions are NSFW. We are honestly expecting a fair amount of horror and erotica. However, again, adult stories are by no means required for acceptance. All story submissions must be "furry" in nature.

We will NOT accept:
Racism, sexism, or discrimination presented in a positive light.
Pedophilia or sex with characters under the age of 18 presented in a positive light.
Rape, torture, dubious consent, forced seduction presented in a positive light.
Snuff or Necrophilia presented in a positive light
Bestiality presented in a positive light
If you are in doubt, ASK. Better to ask then to get a straight up rejection! If you are unsure, just shoot me an email at (restrictions borrowed from Voice:

You can submit up to three stories, but we will only accept one per author (if any).
Reprints are fine, but you have to own full permission of the work in order for us to consider it.
We will not accept simultaneous submissions.
Payment: Authors will receive a free copy of the print book.
Send submissions in .doc or .docx format to
Title your email with the circle in all caps, e.g. "FIRST." If you are sending more than one submission, send multiple emails instead of putting them all in one.
We will inform all authors regarding decisions within a week or two after the deadline.
Book will likely be released December in plenty of time for a hellish Christmas.

Submissions per theme so far:
First (Limbo: 0
Second (Lust): 0
Third (Gluttony): 0
Fourth (Greed): 0
Fifth (Wrath): 0
Sixth (Heresy): 0
Seventh (Violence): 0
Eighth (Fraud): 0
Ninth (Treachery): 0

This. Is. Perfection. Words can't describe how much I absolutely love the genius masterpiece that is Dante's Divine Comedy. Inferno in particular influences a lot of my work. I've already done non-anthro short stories with titles and themes paying tribute to Dante's idea of Hell, but I'll definitely try to think of something for this anthology.
Sometimes I English very well but sometimes no.

I'm always surprised that there hasn't been a furry con called INFURNO yet.

I also want to suggest "Burned Furs" as an alternate title, just to stir up trouble.
