Tom and Huck's Final Adventure!



Check out our newest historical fiction by J.T. Jones!

Tom and Huck’s adventures began with a white picket fence and a journey down a river, but just as the Mississippi is vast and ever-changing, so too are the adventures of these two friends. The boys have grown up and have begun pursuing their unique paths in life. Tom left home to study law and start a family while Huck studied steamboats and has become a ship’s captain. But life is about to be far from normal. War has come to the South. The Yankees draw closer and separate the friends to different sides of the conflict. Daily mischief becomes life-threatening decisions, and the games they once played are no longer safe. Follow Tom and Huck as they face new challenges amid the horrors of war.

Check out Living in the Moment: Lone Wolf

Check out our newest memoir by Roland Jenkins!

Through dark woods and miles of road, Roland Jenkins has been on an incredible American journey. He has learned about life, love, liberty, and the American dream. Prepare yourself as he leads us through the nation's mountains, streams, highways, factories, and memorials, showing us what it ultimately means to live in the moment. With each passing story, we witness the sketches that make up a life, a story that is full of joy, sadness, despair, and a hope that is everlasting.

"Roland Jenkins captures the art of storytelling and the heart of humanity in Living in the Moment. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll be immensely happy you've read this work." -Robert Bradford, Above the Pines.

If you liked our first wolf anthology, check out Wolf Warriors, Vol. II!


Check out our newest anthology edited by Jonathan W. Thurston!

Wolves have terrified and mystified us, their howls echoing through the words of our fairy tales, the texts of our stories, and the deepest crevices of our imaginations. Wolf Warriors II presents a diverse collection of artwork, poetry, essays, and short stories, featuring award-winning poets Mark Tredinnick and John Noland. This anthology captures the various faces of the wolf: from the fantastic to the horrific, from the snow-capped mountain peaks to the moonlit lake in the trees. The howls of these warriors will make you smile, make you cry, and, most of all, make you want to raise your own howl to join the chorus.

Tons of reviews for Furries Among Us!







 Our most recent book, Furries Among Us, has gained tons of media attention on Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, Amazon, and tons of furry venues. It sold out at the European furry convention, Eurofurence, and continues to sell there. Below are just some of the quotes and links from various reviewers:






"A very enjoyable and informative read. I highly suggest it!"
-Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Furries-Among-Us-Prominent-Members/dp/0990890260

"Furries Among Us is, ultimately, a dense, deep and readable exploration of the furry community."
-JM from [adjective][species]: http://www.adjectivespecies.com/2015/08/10/furries-among-us/

"I highly recommend this book, especially for the potential and wannabe furry who may not yet have a full picture of what the fandom is all about. The curious onlooker would do well to peruse it too. On several levels it does a comprehensive job of defining and describing just what it is we do and why we do it."
-Vox Fox from Dogpatch Press: http://dogpatch.press/2015/08/27/furries-among-us/

"Overall, this book helped me understand this fandom better. Thank you for it."
-Bill from Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26070243-furries-among-us?ac=1

Our newest collection of essays!



Check out our newest collection of essays edited by Thurston Howl.

Are they human, or are they beast? Over the past several decades, the world has seen a new phenomenon on the rise, a group of people identifying as "furries." They have appeared in the news and popular TV shows as adults wearing fursuits and participating in sex parties, but what are they really? This collection of essays on the furry fandom reveals furries through their own eyes, with bestselling novelist Kyell Gold, award-winning artist Rukis, the International Anthropomorphic Research Project, and so many more, covering topics from anthropomorphic art to fursuiting to conventions and the psychology behind furries. Some of the essays are comical and playful, while others are serious and academic. On one paw, this is a work for non-furries to get a glimpse into the anthropomorphic world. On the other, this is a chance for furries to hear from many of their favorite furries celebrities.
