Patten To Launch Anthology at Further Confusion

Dogs of War, edited by Fred Patten, is launching at Further Confusion 2017 in San Jose, California over the January 12-16 five-day weekend.

Dogs of War is an all-original anthology of 23 short stories and novelettes of anthropomorphic animals (not just dogs) in military scenarios, from battle action to boot camps, on land, at sea, and in space.  This is designed to appeal to both s-f & fantasy fans, and fans of military s-f.

From a rabbit army’s training camp, to a human army turned into wolves, praying mantises in spacesuits, rattlesnake troops, prejudice against uplifted rat sailors, multi-tailed fox warrior priestesses, and more; these are stories for your imagination and enjoyment.

  1. Darn, I was hoping to see something from S. Andrew Swann, though maybe his gene-altered Moreaus don’t fit the anthropomorphic theme (given the Furry-type cover art).

  2. It’s more likely that Swann didn’t contribute because FurPlanet only pays 1/2¢ a word, which is standard for furry specialty publishers but much less than professional s-f rates.
