From "Nation" to "Planet:" Writing the "Furry Nation" Sequel

Joe Strike is a certified greymuzzle. He’s been part of the Furry community since 1988 when he received a surprise invitation to the very first east coast furry party.

After watching our subculture spread across the world, Joe wrote "Furry Nation," his 2017 account of Furry’s birth, its earliest days and the first generation of furs who made it all happen.

Since then our community has grown ever larger; every day more and more people across the globe realize their furriness and launch their own conventions. With more Furry in the world than ever before, Joe is in the midst of writing "Furry Planet," scheduled for a 2022 release by Apollo Publishers.

Joe will describe the challenge of documenting our dynamic community, reaching people who have brought Furry to their own country, and the hurdles and rewards they faced along the way. "Planet" will also examine aspects of Furry overlooked in "Furry Nation:" furry authors, entrepreneurs and therians, as well as the increasing presence of anthropomorphism in popular and high culture, from superhero films to performance art. (Attendees are welcome to suggest additional topics for "Furry Planet" to explore.)
