Heat, Volume #10 brings in two new talented people to help make this anthology a reality. Black Teagan, of Blotch fame, stepped into the roles of Artistic Director and Layout Designer, managing all the illustrators and comic artists, as well as putting everything into the layout with her own stylistic touches. Dark End, who helped copy edit Hot Dish, joined Jeff Eddy in story editing, and he also provided copy editing along with Fred Patten. We hope that making Heat a more collaborative process will help keep its diversity strong and quality of content high, while distributing the work load so that everyone involved has more time to work on a variety of other projects.
In Flight Path by Huskyteer, illustrated by Anyare, a condom malfunction sends a cat and her Scottish Wildcat boyfriend on a late-night search for emergency contraceptives. And, as if their evening weren't already chaotic enough, their paths cross a late-night robbery attempt.
Repaid In Silver by Kandrel and illustrated by Toulouse is an eloquent missed-connection–style personal ad broadcast to the ether in hopes of connecting a corgi mechanic with his lupine cybernetic paramour.
I Miss You Too is a comic by 333456 in which a young pup relives the previous night with her lover in her mind while cleaning up the detritus of their encounter.
Rough Day is Donryu's comic about a bear letting off some steam with his partner after a hard day at work. Spilled fluids provide both tension and release.
Mail Bonding by Blotch returns us to the American West where a visit to a remote outpost by the Pony Express leads to a cautionary tale about taboos and inhibitions.
