About Elizabeth McCoy

Elizabeth McCoy's fiction has appeared in Marion Zimmer Bradley's Sword and Sorceress #7, in the "Best In Show" anthology by Sofawolf*, and in the fanzine "Pawprints" (published by Conrad Wong & T. Jordan Peacock). Her tabletop RPG writing is published by Steve Jackson Games. As her author bios in SJ Games' material continually state, she lives in the Frozen Wastelands of New England, with a spouse, child, and assorted cats.

She hopes that her work will be enjoyed, and is always a bit awkward about referring to herself in the third person.

*Best in Show has been re-published as: "Furry!: The Best Anthropomorphic Fiction!" (Fred Patten, ed.)

Review by: M.C.A. Hogarth on Oct. 8, 2011 :
A charming addition to the Kintaran stories, suitable for younger readers, and very true to childlike observations, worries and behavior. I see the author's experience as a parent peeking out in how well these alien children are portrayed... and it's a fun romp to boot.

This story's a bit too short for me; I find the Kintaran families are large enough and the language bits a little tanglesome enough that I like more time and longer stories to get into their mindset. Readers who've already sampled the other stories, however, will have fewer problems with that, so dive on in!

Review by: Jon Hartford on May 24, 2011 :
An engaging sci-fi/fantasy short, kind of young adult targeted it seems, but still worthwhile for older readers.
