Griffin Park Studio & Sofawolf Press

Since it was founded in October 1999, Sofawolf Press' mission has been the publication of high-quality independent, anthropomorphic-related books and periodicals. They got their start releasing primarily novels and short-story fiction, but recently have been also been getting involved in art books as well.

As a friend of Tim, Mark, Jeff, and the rest of the editors, I've been proud to be ongoingly involved with several of their publications. Below is a list of Sofawolf titles that I've been involved in in one way or another.

Volume One reprints the entire original series from the fanzine Yarf!, and includes a never-before-seen chapter wrapping up some of the original storylines, written by the author and drawn by Vince Suzukawa.
