A Furry Anthology
Edited by Tarl Hoch

Published through Armoured Fox Press

Deadline: Until Full

The theme for this anthology is Halloween.

Your story can be from any genre, from horror to slice of life, can be erotic or not, so long as the theme is Halloween. Stories that only give a light dressing of Halloween will be passed over for stories that follow the theme and keep things interesting for the reader. (as they will be reading a number of stories all centered around Halloween)

As this is a furry anthology, your story MUST include anthropomorphic animals. Including humans is perfectly acceptable. Were-creatures are not considered anthro characters, but you are welcome to include them as long as you have anthro-characters present. (if you have any doubt, please contact the editor)

We will NOT accept:
Racism, sexism, or discrimination presented in a positive light.
Pedophilia or sex with characters under the age of 18.
Rape, torture, dubious consent, forced seduction.
If you are in doubt, ASK. Better to ask then to get a straight up rejection!

Submission Details

Length: Our preferred length is approximately 3,000 to 12,000 words. We are willing to take longer works, but shorter ones are more likely to be rejected.

Payment: ½ cent per word

How to submit: Send .rtf, .doc, or .docx via email to Tarl Hoch, editor, at armouredfoxpress@gmail.com.

Specifics: Only emails with attachment submissions will be accepted. Standard manuscript formatting is preferred. Please note that this means your name, address, and email contact must appear on the manuscript itself and not simply in your email message. (http://www.shunn.net/format/story.html)

A cover letter. Give a little information about your story, yourself, and why you chose to write for this anthology.

No simultaneous submissions please (Don’t also send your story elsewhere at the same time), though you can submit more than one story to this anthology. If you choose to do the latter, only your best story will be accepted.

Originals stories only please, no reprints.

We purchase exclusive publication rights in print and electronic formats for the period of one year from date of publication for the stories and non-exclusive rights in perpetuity thereafter. Submissions must not contain any copyrighted characters which the author does not hold the copyright on.
