FANG, vol. 11 - Fantasy, now open!

We are proud to announce that FANG Volume 11 is now open for submission. The theme for this volume is “Fantasy.” If it fits within the broad description of the fantasy genre, it could have a place in FANG. Some examples of style and subgenre choices include Sword and Sorcery, Epic Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, traditional High Fantasy, or some new combination. Show us your creativity and let’s make magic together

FANG is an M/M erotic furry anthology (it should go without saying, but to be very clear, this includes trans men). All stories must center around at least one anthropomorphic animal character and contain erotic content.
