An "unknown" Furry novel?
The December 2002 "Chronicle: SF, Fantasy & Horror" announces (pg. 23) that "Raven's End" by Ben Gadd, a novel 'in the tradition of Watership Down' about ravens, which is currently getting excellent reviews in Germany (the German edition is "Rabens Ruh", published in September by Kindler Verlag in Munich), has just been sold to Sierra Club Books for a U.S. edition.
"Chronicle" does not mention that the German edition is not the original one. It was originally a Canadian novel: "Raven's End: A Tale from the Canadian Rockies" by Ben Gadd (McClelland & Stewart, February 2001). It is almost two years old now; if it is this good, has anyone in Furry fandom read it yet?
Has anyone considered compiling a bibliography of animal novels that could be called "a Watership Down featuring ..."? Some would include:
Badgers: "The Cold Moons" by Aeron Clement.
Bats: "Silverwing", "Sunwing", and "Firewing", by Kenneth Oppel.
Deer: "Fire Bringer" by David Clement-Davies.
Foxes: The five "Foxes of Sinna" novels by Tom McCaughren.
Moles: The six "Duncton" novels by William Horwood.
Squirrels: "The Silver Tide", The Second Wave", and "The Golden Flight" by Michael Tod.
What else can be added?
