What unique challenges to anthropomorphic characters face when it comes to transition? What is coming out like? How do hormones work? So many questions!


We are looking for short story submissions that explore the implications of non-cisgender life within the context of furry.

@hybrid You're paying people less than one-sixth of professional rate, and targeting a marginalized community to boot.

@DissidentKitty @hybrid Hi there! I'm the editor of the anthology and owner of Hybrid.

Hybrid, as a new publishing house, is a labor of love. It is also funded 100% out of pocket. I work a day job as a contractor and set aside ~$1000 for each anthology because that's all I can afford while still making rent.

Here's how it breaks down:

~$500 for stories
$250 for 30 copies (~20 author copies, 10 stock)
~$100-$200 for cover art
$50 for business, excise, and sales tax

@DissidentKitty @hybrid My dream is to make Hybrid at least a half-time job for me, paying anthology authors AT LEAST standard professional rates. After all, we already pay novel authors 50% net on paperback, five times what larger houses pay! Dreams have to start somewhere, though, and for now, I can only offer what I can afford out of my own pocket.

@makyo @DissidentKitty @hybrid
Respect for actually responding transparently.

Other than that, I like the idea of what you're doing with your LLC and the #Genderful anthology sounds very interesting. Hopefully, it goes well. #cisgendered
