Chasing Her Story

This weekend is Midwest FurFest, a furry convention over in Rosemont, Illinois. Many people I know are attending; I, alas, am not, but I am there in spirit because the lovely Kyell Gold, who is one of their Guests of Honour, invited me to collaborate with him on a story for the conbook.

The convention's theme this year is Flight, which may possibly be why Kyell thought of me as a potential co-author. We batted ideas back and forth and came up with a round-the-world race between two pilots, loosely based on the true stories of Joan Merriam Smith and Sheila Scott.

We discovered that each pilot had carried a stuffed animal in the cockpit, Joan a polar bear and Sheila a rabbit, which provided their species in the furry universe.

I'm really pleased with how it turned out, and I hope convention-goers can take a few minutes out of their busy schedules to sit down with a good story.
