From the Desk of the Fox,

Today is Memorial Day. A day set aside by my government to remember those who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

Many around me have confused Memorial Day with Veterans Day. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving. Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. Military Veterans.

While some in my family have served the US Armed Forces, none have died while on active duty – they were lucky.

  • My younger brother serves as a US Army Reserve Officer out of Fort Campbell; Prior to that he served in Fort Bragg, the DMZ in the Korean Peninsula, and Fort Polk.
  • My youngest brother was set to serve as an Air Force member, but due to personal issues did not make the cut.
  • My father served with the US Navy at the NUWC in Newport, Rhode Island.
  • My uncle served with the 82nd Airborne Division out of Fort Bragg.
  • My aunt served at U.S. Army Garrison in Hawaii.
  • My uncle served, and almost died, while stationed at the US Army base in Ansbach, Germany.
  • My Grandfather was stationed at a refueling depot in Iceland with the US Army, two of his children followed in his footsteps.

I salute all the fallen heroes who gave their lives defending my country. It is their sacrifice that allows me to have the freedom to do the things I enjoy. It is their sacrifice that reminds us that freedom isn’t free.

I extend a heart-felt thanks to the families of all our fallen soldiers, please remember their service, their choices, their giving it all for all of us.

Thank you.

Children of Steel by John Van Stry

Raj is just your average everyday genetically modeled and artificially created anthropomorphic worker for one of the many corporations of the future. Extensively trained and conditioned from birth he’s now indentured for the next fifty years of his life; assuming he doesn’t die first, or somehow manage to pay off his creation and training debts.

Created by the corporations to deal with the harsh labor shortages of the twenty second century when humans will no longer take on the dangerous jobs Raj finds himself now in the harsh world of space exploration, trading, corporate maneuverings, and sometimes the even more dangerous fanatics that hate Raj and his fellows. No longer in safe confines of the training academies he must learn how to live and deal with both his fellow workers and the humans he encounters and not get saddled with extra bills or fines because he’s screwed up or worse yet, get ‘put down’ because he’s lost his temper one time too many.

After all, it’s not like he’s human…

Danger Money by John Van Stry

Jotun was born and bred to be a corporate assassin, back in the days of the Corporate Wars. Confined these days to life in a gilded cage, Jotun welcomes any opportunity to get out and lately he’s been getting out a lot. But as a genetically designed and Laboratory bred animorph by a company that isn’t quite sure if it trusts him anymore his choices are few: do the jobs that eventually will kill him, or refuse, which will also kill him.

Of course it isn’t like he doesn’t enjoy the work, but when everybody wants you dead you start to wonder if there isn’t more to life. When an unexpected betrayal kills the few friends he has and nearly him as well, Jotun realizes he has bigger problems than his lifestyle, namely finding out who betrayed him and paying them back, no matter what the cost.

Danger Money is a Science Fiction story that takes place in my Children of Steel universe, a future where genetically created animorphs serve as second class citizens and handle all of the dirty and dangerous jobs that are part of humanity’s extension to the stars.


We’re gearing up for CaliFur next week and are working to release three of our own books at the convention. I can only tell you that one is by Kandral, one by Alflor Aalto, and the other by Varzen and A. Kita. We’ll be providing more details once they go live for pre-order next week.

Last week we featured Graveyard Greg as our Furry Writer of the Week. This week we would like to feature one of the Fox’s personal favorites – Kevin Frane (Also known as Rikoshi or KM Hirosaki – he came out of the KM Hiro-Closet sometime last year).
