Fred Patten’s newest anthology, Gods with Fur, will go on sale at Anthrocon 2016 at the end of this month. Published by FurPlanet Productions, the trade paperback book contains 23 original stories by Kyell Gold, Mary E. Lowd, Michael H. Payne, and more, featuring the gods of anthropomorphic worlds and the anthropomorphic gods of our world.
You may know about Egyptian mythology’s jackal-headed Anubis, but do you know about wolf-headed Wepwawet? You may know about China’s Monkey King or the native North Americans’ Coyote (well, they say they’re gods), but do you know about the Aztecs’ 400 drunken rabbits?
Here are historic gods, the gods of their authors’ series (Kyell Gold’s Forrester University; Heidi Vlach’s Aligare, Kris Schnee’s TaleSpace), and totally original gods:

Hey Fred, question. Is this going to be available for purchase on kindle?
I expect that there will be a Bad Dog Books electronic edition. I’m not sure what (or weather) there is between that and a Kindle edition.
Alright, just curious cause i use kindle a lot more than I should. But if it does, that would be great. Not trying to push it too hard for kindle, just curious if it would be is all.
Hmmm. I see that Amazon.com lists my FurPlanet Productions anthologies “The Ursa Major Awards Anthology”, “What Happens Next”, “Five Fortunes”, and “The Furry Future” as having Kindle editions; but “Cats and More Cats” is listed in trade paperback only, and “Anthropomorphic Aliens” and “An Anthropomorphic Century” aren’t listed at all. (My “Already Among Us” from Legion Publishing is also on Kindle.)
So I don’t really know whether “Gods with Fur” will be published in a Kindle edition or not; but probably so.
