Set in the far-future when dogs rule the Earth and otters dance through the skies in their spaceships, the Otters In Space
trilogy combines the sometimes whimsical, sometimes deadly serious
interspecies politics of talking animals à la Brian Jacques' Redwall series with the spirit of pioneering, space adventure and hard science-fiction of Isaac Asimov's Lucky Starr series. (In more modern terms -- imagine Star Wars crossed with Zootopia.) The trilogy as well as a coming-of-age/romance spin-off called In a Dog's World are all published by FurPlanet.
