Synopsis: There's Always Another Horizon
People travel for all sorts of reasons. Some seek knowledge, others want to escape. An explorer might want to know what lies beyond the seemingly endless desert, but most people just want to get out a little and meet the neighbors. That’s a much longer trip when they live in the next galaxy.
Exploring New Places is an anthology of 19 short stories about anthropomorphic animals venturing into unfamiliar territory, and you can join them. Whether they are a rabbit in a spaceship searching for their creator, bats sailing into the wind, a gorilla student wandering off in a museum, or two-tailed squirrels confronting interstellar explorers; these animals will take you to parts unknown and new worlds of imagination.
Journey with them, and light a candle in a far away place.
