Anthroview sample coverSummercat will be releasing the first issue of his new furry magazine, Anthroview, at Antheria at the end of this month. I got to speak to him about the magazine and touch on some of the other aspects of the furry fandom in which he is involved.

Rakuen Growlithe: You're planning to release a new magazine for the furry fandom called Anthroview. When did you first get the idea for Anthroview?

Summercat: About three or four years ago, although it's gone through a lot of changes since then.

RG: What sort of changes are we talking about and why did it take three or four years to get to this point?

Something strange is going down in SoCal. Antheria, scheduled to start October 1 in Los Angeles, has been forced to switch hotels, according to convention co-chair 2.

The new venue is the Best Western Sunrise, 20-40 minutes down the road in Redondo Beach. Those wishing to stay must reserve new rooms, currently at a higher room rate.

Reservations for the Westin LAX will not transfer, and must be canceled by 6PM September 28 to avoid a charge. This can be done via the online reservation system, or by phone. Those wishing to cancel their convention registration must email by September 24.
