I'm a recent furry, but lifelong speculative fiction reader, and now a writer too. (As a hobby, mind you.) However, I should probably warn you that I'm somewhat of an outsider to the TF community, drawn here by friends and a number of awesome stories.
- Dragon's Wish: a fantasy flash fiction.
- The Wolf With the Red Cap: a Rule 63 version of the famous story, with a bit of TF thrown in (short).
- Invader: in order to live on Earth, an alien must give up his entire past (short).
- Parole Planet: science fiction novelette about a young man stranded on a distant planet, among strangers with odd customs... that will slowly change him.
- Kingdom of the Fire River: Clockpunk fantasy novella in which a young soldier discovers a hidden world literally right under his feet. A refuge from disasters, unrest and war. But hide there for too long, and it's forever.
- Alpha Camp (a stand-alone FreeRIDErs story -- can be read on its own without knowing anything about the setting);
- Return to Alpha Camp (a shorter sequel/epilogue of sorts to Alpha Camp);
- The Wolf and the Father (third story in the Alpha Camp series).
- Imperfect Coupling: a single (and short) TG story that requires familiarity with the setting, unlike the others.
Feedback on my stories is welcome, but I will argue with you: I don't do things without a good reason.

Why did the RIDE cross the road? Because the road was of the opposite sex.
- Pretty much anything from the aforementioned FreeRIDErs setting.
- Extracted, and other stories from Sturmovik's United Federation of Alternate Worlds setting.
- Destinies, an awesome sci-fi novel by the late Michael Bard, fairly hard SF until near the end. Reminiscent of A.E. Van Vogt and Arthur C. Clarke, except much better written.
- Diary of a Centaur in a Human's World, by the same author. Furry transformation done right for a change, with all the body horror it would normally involve.
- Joysweeper's 501st and Femtroopers, from the Xanadu series. Deep psychological TF fiction in an utterly surreal setting.
- Refamiliarization, by Xodiac, another Xanadu story.
