A dog-guy, space adventures, bubbly alcoholic drinks, and a jungle safari. This is a thing now.
After the first title in the Cupcakes brand, Kyell Gold’s Bridges, was published, we’ve been interested in finding out what the other two authors running this project were working on. Kevin “Rikoshi” Frane is up next with an as-yet-unnamed story set in a medieval fantasy world, and we’ve managed to squeeze a few details out him.
Does the furry fandom have a James Bond equivalent yet? Don’t say Spy Fox, fuck that guy. I’m going to submit that Arkady Ryswife, the ferret protagonist of Kevin Frane’s newest novel The Seventh Chakra is the fandom’s official badass secret agent.
The third weekend of January will see throngs of furries flocking to the Bay Area for Further Confusion, presumably to compete in a fursuit decathlon and freak out the staff of the new hotel location. And in addition to panels about connecting with your inner fox or whatever, artists and authors will be showcasing their new works. Among them are Kevin Frane and Kyell Gold, both of whom will premiere their new novels. Real fucking books, y’all.
A week ago I had the chance to sit down with Kyell Gold and Rikoshi, a couple of charming and talented local authors. The interview led to a couple of articles, but I figured you guys might be interested in listening to them yap.
Let’s be honest here, guys, reading is a lot of work. It can’t easily be done while multitasking. It requires a level of concentration that TV and video games (and porn) don’t. And unlike most of my recreational activities, I can’t really enjoy it drunk. But by far my biggest deterrent against reading is that books are long, and I’m a busy guy, god dammit. So how can I get my short quality furry fiction fix without playing the Russian Roulette that is YiffStar?
