Claw & Steel is a magazine dedicated to postive portrayals
of werewolves and other werecreatures. The lycanthropes appearing
in these pages can be heroes, workers, diplomats, homemakers, or
anything under the sun (or moon). But they are generally not Hollywood-esque
monsters. That type of lycanthrope already gets too much exposure.
By the same token, I'm not too keen on stories in which werecreatures
are portrayed as being all good and humans are scum.
you would like to contribute to FC&S, then we'd love
to hear from you! We're looking for letters of comment, stories,
artwork, articles, comics, reviews, and other were-related material.
FC&S is a PG rated zine, so explicit nudity, sex, and
extreme violence will not be published. Poetry and song lyrics are
also not normally included.
