We are proud to announce that FANG Volume 10 is now open for submission, with new editor Sparf and guest editor Kyell Gold. The theme for this volume is “Transitions.”
Everything in life transitions from one stage to another: relationships, personality, jobs, you name it. What happens when the way you view someone changes? Does it lead to steamier places, or to a cooling off? Maybe someone is transitioning into single life, or away from monogamy in their relationship. Maybe society is in transition around the characters. The theme is broad, so show us what it means to you.
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.
Please adhere to the following submission guidelines:
1) Story length is between 2,500 and 10,000 words. Please query to email@example.com (Subject line: QUERY) if you plan to exceed this limit, and the editors will discuss it with you.
2) Multiple Submissions–Please limit yourself to no more than 2 submissions.
3) Reprints–Please query the editors directly about this topic.
4) Simultaneous Submissions–We are not accepting submissions that are also under consideration by another publication (even another FurPlanet publication). Submissions that have been rejected elsewhere are fine.
5) We will NOT accept:
- Racism, sexism, or discrimination presented in a positive light.
- Pedophilia or sex with characters under the age of 18

We welcome and will be looking for diverse voices.
