Okay, so, realistically, I had way too many stories come out in 2018 for anyone to keep track of them all — 25 stories total, and almost all of them are furry. So, I’m going to list them all here, but I’m also going to filter them out a bit — putting a few of my favorites at the top of the list, and then arranging them by how easy they are to read online.
First, my novel The Snake’s Song: A Labyrinth of Souls Novel came out in 2018 and is eligible for awards! I’ve received permission from the publisher, ShadowSpinners Press, to reprint the first chapter here on Deep Sky Anchor! So, here ya go, The Snake’s Song: Chapter One.
And now… some of my favorites of my furry short stories from 2018:
- Wing Day (Daily Science Fiction — already nominated for a Leo Award!)
- Not All Dogs (Dissident Signals)
- Winged Folk Only (Daily Science Fiction)
- Thirty Honey Feasts To Go (Theme of Absence)
- Welcome to the Arboretum, Little Robot (Analog)
Next up are all the rest of my furry stories from 2018 that can be read easily and freely online:
- Go High (Daily Science Fiction)
- The Pink Agate (Daily Science Fiction)
- Hypercrystal Wish (Daily Science Fiction)
- The Oldest One (Daily Science Fiction)

- Waking Up In The Genie Shop (Daily Science Fiction)

- Chrysalis Party (Kaleidotrope) — less furry, has a human main character
- Anger is a Porcupine, Sadness is a Fish (Electric Spec) — less furry, but involves transformation
And now we get to the stories that are either hard to read online, not available online, or not really furry… but they exist! And they came out in 2018!

- The Blood Portal (Electric Spec — free to read, but not furry)
- Geese and Gingerbread (Fantasia Divinity — free to read, if you scroll down the page, but less furry)
Finally, I’m the editor of ROAR 9 and the new furry e-zine Zooscape. ROAR 9 is eligible as an Other Literary Work, and Zooscape is eligible as a Magazine. If you’d like to check out Zooscape, it also has free-to-read, awards-eligible furry stories in it.
