Welcome to Issue 4 of Zooscape!
In furry fiction, some animals are the staples, and others are the spice. Doing a round-up of stories in our first year, for instance, Zooscape has published four times as many cat stories as, say, elephant or octopus stories. People like cats, so there are a lot of stories about them. Fewer people seem to feel compelled to write stories about, oh, manta rays or sentient piñatas.
In this issue, the staple is foxes and wolves, and the spice is turtles and insects. Wolves who are out of their element; foxes who are on journeys. Turtles who carry entire worlds on their backs; and insects who discover that even their own society contains different cultures inside of it.
