Therianthropy (n) – The metamorphosis from human to animal from. See: lycanthropy

The world of legend, myth, and fiction is filled with tales of men and women who have the ability to transform into animals. The most popular of these, of course, are werewolves. However, there is an abundance of animals that have been paired with shape-shifters, weres, and skinwalkers that have yet to shine.

Musa’s Erato GLBT imprint is seeking stories of these other therianthropes and shape-shifters. Use creatures from ancient legends, or make up your own, but make sure to show us the animal in your hero or heroine. We want to see more than just wolves this Halloween!
