Quentin 'Cubist' Long here, once again announcing a new issue of ANTHRO -- #14 -- to the world. If you think I've finished #14 a heck of a lot later than usual, well, you're right; let's just say that Real Life (mostly in the form of job-hunting, and temporary employment) *really* got in the way. Do you think it's unfortunate that mundane financial considerations can get in the way of my working on the 'zine? Me, too. Do you want to help prevent this sort of thing from happening again? Great! You are cordially invited to check out the selection at ANTHRO Press [ http://www.lulu.com/cubist ], the ANTHRO Mall [ http://astore.amazon.com/anthrozine-20 ], and Graphic Descriptions [ http://www.zazzle.com/cubist* ], and purchase whatever may strike your fancy; alternately, feel free to browse ANTHRO's Adams-to-Zelazny collection of recommended furry books [ http://anthrozine.com/site/support.books.1.html ] and/or the Ultimate Anthropomorphic Checklist [ http://anthrozine.com/site/lbry/furry.checklist.a.html ], and buy the one(s) that look good to you.
Anywho... Although this issue is the latest ANTHRO has ever been, its contents are such that I think you'll agree it was worth the wait!
Item: SNOWFLAKE! Specifically, Kacey Miyagami's nifty artwork by that name, which the divine Ms. M. was kind enough to allow us to use on our cover. Yay!
Item: Santa Fox! No, we didn't incorporate Santa Fox himself into the ANTHRO website -- sorry, but we just can't figure out how to squeeze a living, breathing person through an Internet connection -- but what we've got instead is almost as good. First, we've got an interview with Santa Fox, said interview being conducted by Phil Geusz! Second, we've got the true story of Santa Fox, as told to (and by!) the Fox himself -- and who'd know better, eh?
