Synopsis: In this fourth volume of New Fables, travel to strange and wonderful places with more of the best writing from furry fandom and beyond. Meet a dog-soldier struggling to grow up in a normal family and a team of battle-weary horses put out to pasture. A half-wolf laments the loss of her pack as she is forced to run the Minotaur's maze to escape slavery, and a faithful friend looks back on his best friend's life. The moon inspires in a lovely poem, and reveals a mysterious coyote in old California.
These diverse stories continue the age-old tradition of telling human stories with animal themes. Alienation, betrayal, loyalty, and love shine in the writing of the New Fables authors, not only through the stories, but through their mastery of expression and form.
