Spirit of the Wolf
- edited by Carol Hightshoe

Spirit of the wolf FC.jpg

The wolf has been a creature of mythology and legend since humans first told stories. Feared and reviled, or worshipped and loved, the wolf symbolizes wildness and power. In Spirit of the Wolf, we’re hoping to capture the wolf in new stories that celebrate their wildness and freedom, their magic and mysticism.


We’re looking for well-constructed speculative fiction stories where wolves play a major role. The only thing we do not want to see is Wolves as evil.


Proceeds from sales of Spirit of the Wolf will be donated to Mission Wolf located in Westcliffe, Colorado. Check them out at:



Break the story-writing rules if you want. If you use a tried-and-true plotline, twist it in an original and interesting way. Original stories are preferred. Query for reprints.

If experimental, please explain the type or how so the editor doesn’t edit out the form or reject it out of hand. Thank you.
