Bound Tales

Thurston Howl's Bound Tales is THP's furry imprint. This means that it focuses on publishing adult anthropomorphic-animal fiction, adult implying both erotica and horror mostly.

For our Bound Tales store, go here.

If you are interested in querying us for your furry book, please send us a full query (first 10-20 pages, full synopsis in one or two single-spaced pages, and a cover letter) to thurstonhowlpub@gmail.com, addressing one of the editors below based on your genre.

Anthologies

Less Fur-Miliar Spaces

Deadline to Commit: June 1, 2021

Deadline for Stories: October 1, 2021

Word count: 2,000-8,000; a little above and a little below will be acceptable. You can submit up to three stories, but we will only accept one per author (if any).

Payment: $10 USD per story accepted and discount on author copies.

There are so many furry concepts in the writing community that are considered almost cliché now, and overused at best. And much of this writing is put up on SoFurry but rarely sees the light of day nowadays in published fiction. This anthology seeks to both celebrate that tropishness and have fun with it. Some authors might make these cliched tropes super serious and artistic. Some might make fun of them and be more parodic! You can expect the full gamut with this antho. The setting chosen for this volume are ones that are cliché, but less so than some of the more obvious ones like a beach or locker room. 

Each section includes three writers who will collaborate on the world of their section, creating seven different mini-anthologies all in this one book!

The seven sections are as follows (as of 2/24):

  • Food delivery/diner/restaurant--3 spots open

  • Public bathroom/gloryhole--3 spots open

  • Sex toy factory--3 spots open

  • Camping trip--3 spots open

  • On the road--3 spots open

  • Public library--3 spots open

  • Pool--3 spots open

World rules will be set by the group of authors! If you're interested in being part of a specific group, let me know by hitting me up on Telegram @ThurstonHowl

To be accepted, hit me up with your interest on Telegram, and then I will ask to see at least a writing sample from you and we will go from there. Generally, it will be first come, first serve! Again, this is an experiment for us, so we are going to see how this goes!

We do encourage authors to be kinky, sex positive, and diverse in their writing. This is a celebration of porn and smut! 

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! If you are unsure, just refer to this official doc where slots for more information and a daily update on what spots are available or closed (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yLrX7yRUPUStnxIXEKwVvU1xSpEpUjCjFNCwrj6WUZA/edit) (restrictions borrowed from Voice: https://t.co/MWykJ6RY36)

Payment: Authors will receive 10 USD per story accepted and discount on author copies. This book will be illustrated.

We will inform all authors regarding decisions within a week or two after the deadline.

Payment: $10 USD per story accepted and discount on author copies.

The horned Krampus. The Rat King of the Nutcracker. The giant cat Jolakotturinn. The Mari Lwyd. 

There are so many holiday monsters, and there are other holiday characters who could be monstrified! Rudolph, the Snow-Wolf, Jack Frost, Santa...

What is up, dear friends! The editor that brought you 12 Days of Yiffmas is back with another holiday erotica anthology for furries, but this time, it's horrific too!

Stories must be furry in nature, first of all.

Second, stories must be horror. That goes without saying.

And of course, stories must focus on Christmas, Yule, etc. The whole winter holiday!

FURWARD SLASH: A Furry Adult Techno-Horror Anthology

Deadline: November 30, 2021

Payment: $10 USD per story

Editor: Reinardo Villalobos

Word count: 2,500-8,000; a little above and a little below will be acceptable.

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
