I'm obviously too young and too new to the party to personally recall any of it, but it's a fascinating glimpse into our – furries' – history. At the same time, it's a pity it stops after 1996; there's a lot of history after that that'd deserve to be told, and to me at least, it sometimes seems that furry fandom has largely broken with its roots, comic books, 'zines and so on. It's grown (by huge amounts), and it's changed; sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse.
Nevertheless, it's a fascinating read. And I was quite tickled to see Tad Williams' Tailchaser's Song mentioned — a great book by my favorite author.
