Also in furry novel news - Dave Farrance recently posted an addendum to the Furry Novel List, which hasn't been updated in nearly two years, stating that he is finally working on a revision (no actual revisions yet). Lets hope something comes of it.
My "An Anthropomorphic Bibliography", 3rd edition, published by Yarf!, is still available from them for $8.00, which I believe covers postage & handling: Yarf!, P. O. Box 1299, Cupertino, CA 95015-1299. It is 75 pages, annotated, illustrated & indexed, and covers over 500 Furry books, mostly adult novels from the well-known like Adams' "Watership Down" to the now-obscure like A. B. Cox's "The Professor On Paws" (1926) and Theodore Pratt's "Mr. Limpet" (1942, on which the 1964 Don Knotts movie was based). It was published in January 2000, so it is admittedly four years out of date. The 4th edition, which should add about 150 titles since 2000, will hopefully be published during 2004.
