This volume of ROAR explores the idea of community from every angle and with all kinds of animals. You’ll find darkness inside, but you’ll also find hope, help, and connections to brighten the night. These sixteen stories, from long time furry authors and rising stars, are your invitation.
So step inside and go on an adventure with an exiled fox and his friends in the rain forest. Take a hike with a fisher. Learn magic with a dragon. Attend a family reunion full of gregarious cows. Face a mystery among meerkats. Celebrate Colony Day on Mars.
You’re invited to it all!
