Title:SIG: Furry Fans and Friends
Friends of Furry Fandom gather.
Is there any reason for evolution to not produce furry
intelligence? Do fur and relatively large size imply a cold
environment? What are the cultural consequences of walking around with a valuable pelt? Is there a psychological bent to being furry?
Wolf Read, Gerald R. Perkins, Fred Patten, James Clemens
Living in a world when animals can talk back to you.
David Brin, Vernor Vinge, Larry Niven, Terry Bisson, Terry Pratchett
In addition, there are panels such as "Animal Totemism", "The Art of Writing Fight Scenes", and "Costuming: Hair, Wigs, and Accessories" which cover topics that are clearly applicable to Furry writing and costuming.

The Worldcon Masquerade has many elaborate costumes but usually few or no Fursuiters. Fursuiters with really good costumes may be missing a great opportunity by not participating in a Worldcon Masquerade.
