One of Cordwainer Smith's stories, Mother Hitton's Littul Kittons, is available online. Smith is one of the great classic authors of science fiction and is highly recommended. If you haven't read any of his stories, this is as good a place as any to start.

Zen Online Comic

No votes yet

I found Journey to the West by accident. It's a daily online strip in color about... well, a zen coyote, a fox who's a cross between Agent Scully and Lara Croft, an alien and his Siamese wife and a bigfoot. Oh, and the Men in Black. It's funny, but in a Zen sort of way, and some strips are little exercises in meditation. Additionally, it's drawn in a very artistic style. Much fun, and very unusual. Check it out!

New Online Comic

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (3 votes)

I recently stumbled across a promising-looking comic strip called Spellshocked. It's just getting off the ground, but I'm hooked already. A quarter-dragon named Fendrian has just arrived at the magician's school Featherglass academy, and has met his roommate - an enthusiastic fox named Johan. New strips appear on the first and fifteenth of the month by Benjamin Yackley, Charles Caffrey and Mark Freid.

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

It's official! Midwest FurFest 2001 will be held on November 16-18th 2001, at the Sheraton Arlington Park in Arlington Heights, Illinois. We're returning to the same weekend, and the same hotel as last year, and we're looking forward to providing more of the fun and excitment of last year's convention!

We're also very proud to have Mary Hanson-Roberts and Jessica 'Ginger' Willard, as our first two confirmed Guests of Honor! Mary Hansen-Roberts is probably best known to furry fandom for her epic comic, 'Here Comes a Candle'. Originally serialized in Furrlough, it is now available from Shanda Fantasy Arts as a single trade paperback. Mary's art also appears at many furry and SF convention art shows around the US, and is always a popular seller. Jessica 'Ginger' Willard is a former wizard of Furtoonia MUCK, and is another fan favorite artist, best known for her 'Falstaff' character. Jessica also works at Wolf Park, one of Midwest FurFest 2000's charities.

We'll have more guest announcements in the future, so keep your ears perked and your eyes trained on our website. Hope to see you at the convention!

I heard the rumor before Further Confusion, and it's true: Issue #12 will be the last issue for the popular G-rated fanzine, Pawprints. Editors Conrad 'Lynx' Wong and Jordan 'Greywolf' Peacock will be moving on to other things. Click on 'read more' to see the info sheet they put out for FC, and check back to Flayrah later to catch my interview with Lynx.

State of the Website

Your rating: None Average: 4.5 (2 votes)

After over a week, 700 visitors, and over 80 registered users, is chugging along fairly well. We acquired a logo about mid-week, courtesy of Jen Hayden...thanks! Some of you have emailed me with niggling little code bugs, and I've noticed a few myself. Some of these I've been able to fix, many I haven't. The developer of the weblog code I'm using is promising a large bugfix release early next week; I'm hoping this will fix many of the problems, and I'll be rolling it out on as soon as I can. Unti then, thanks for the support!
