[REVIEW] Burnt Fur by Various Authors and Edited by Ken MacGregor

Burnt Fur is a collection of stories revolving around humanoid animals, furries, and the deviant stuff they do together and to each other. The synopsis immediately made me wonder what I would be getting into, but I checked out the anthology nevertheless. The first half of stories weren’t too disturbing, so I let me guard…

[REVIEW] Snowball by Gregory Bastianelli

I heard a lot of mixed things about Snowball prior to receiving an ARC for review. Having heard some of the common complaints ahead of time actually may have helped my enjoyment of it, though.

I’m on this page; it’s not easy for me to love a collection, because usually there’s a handful of stories I…

This collection features all of Dead as Soon as Born and Kill for Them (with the exception of screenplays and previews), as…
