 Synopsis:  New Fables brings the tradition of literary journals to Sofawolf Press. These fabulist stories, poems, and essays use animal characters to explore human experiences of love, class society, memory, and many others.


From editor Tim Susman's opening essay, "What are New Fables?": "The stories in this volume range from fantasy to mythic to science fiction. The characters are not American, nor European nor Asian. There are characters who are black and white, shades of grey, and even orange. They have the appearance of animals, but as Aesop's wolf in sheep's clothing might warn you, do not let looks deceive you. Their stories teach us what it means to be, not European, American, black, nor white, but human."


Volume 1 features poems by Elizabeth Barrette, Ryan Campbell, and David Cowan; essays by Phil Guesz and Tim Susman; and stories by Ryan Campbell, Kevin Frane, Michael Payne, and Tim Susman. Cover by Ursula Husted, and interior illustrations by Blotch, Heather Bruton, Jill C., and Sara Palmer.

Item Reviews
Looking for great stories... they're right here.
I’ve always been impressed with Tim Susman's ability to choose stories for his compilations, and New Fables 2007 is no exception. He’s picked some great stories from several talented writers including Ryan Campbell, who delivers his thought-provoking story “A Non-Biodegradable Fox” that mixes anthropomorphic fiction and taxidermy in a stunning way. And Tim Susman even adds his own piece to the collection. His story “The Shifting Sands” is a suspenseful take on anthros in the military who are asking questions they shouldn’t be asking. I couldn’t put it down. So if you are looking for really good general audience stories in a sea of furry erotica, look no further than New Fables.
