Isaac Asimov once famously stated, “I do not fear computers. I fear the lack of them.” Yet, this exact fear, fear of technology, has been a big staple in the news and in the media ever since. 2001: A Space Odyssey. I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream. The Fly. Black Mirror. Even anime like Sword Art Online talk about the perils that may come from new technology, or from the right technology falling into the wrong hands. The idea is that each story focuses on one or two pieces of technology, their uses or misuses, and the consequences arising from that. A cybernetic genital implant could provide a deadly experience to its users. A deal on the dark web could go wrong for an unsuspecting wolf. An old camera could capture images coming out of this world. A malevolent AI could torment a couple by hacking their Bad Dragon toys.  A Furby could…exist.

We will take preference for stories that showcase both furry and their selected technology (currently existing or otherwise) in the front and center, and not just something to throw aside as soon as the main plot starts. Moreso if they find a way to integrate both elements together in unique ways.

Things we will NOT accept:

  • Racism, sexism, or discrimination presented in a positive light.

  • Pedophilia or ex with characters under the age of 18 presented in a positive light.

  • Rape, torture, dubious consent, forced seduction presented in a positive light.

  • Snuff, necrophilia, or bestiality presented in a positive light

If you are in doubt, ASK. Better to ask than to get rejected! (restrictions borrowed from Voice: https://t.co/MWykJ6RY36) If you are unsure, just shoot an email at [email protected]

You can submit up to three stories, but we will only accept one per author (if any).

Reprints are fine, but you have to own full permission of the work in order for us to consider it.

We will NOT accept simultaneous submissions.

Payment: Authors will receive 10 USD per story accepted and discount on author copies. We will inform all authors regarding decisions within a week or two after the deadline.
