The Goat: Building the Perfect Victim

by Bill Kieffer
 
An impressive fable-clever and subversive. Kieffer's prose is playful, poetic and brutal in turns. Highly recommended. ~Rabbit Hole Reviews

A romp through the least-understood of all remaining terra-incognitos; the darkest, deepest reaches of human nature. ~Phil Geusz

Shock. From beginning to end. If you ever want a book to slap you in the face as hard

Overview

An impressive fable-clever and subversive. Kieffer's prose is playful, poetic and brutal in turns. Highly recommended. ~Rabbit Hole Reviews

A romp through the least-understood of all remaining terra-incognitos; the darkest, deepest reaches of human nature. ~Phil Geusz

Shock. From beginning to end. If you ever want a book to slap you in the face as hard as possible, this...this is for you. ~Thurston Howl, editor-in-chief of Thurston Howl Publications

If what one is looking for is a quick, unusual horror with a twist ending, "The Goat" is the book to fit that criterion. ~Hype's is Hypetaph, contributor to Furries Among Us

Built on a crumpling infrastructure of technology and magic, society makes a blessing of the many cursed with species dysphoria... animal souls trapped with human shells. They mold them into mages rather than monsters. Glenn is certain there's a goat inside of him but the Elder Council doesn't agree.

In a shitty marriage that plays like a broken record of abandonment and reconciliation, Frank lives in broken world. He gets by, ignoring the darkness and denying his deepest fantasies. The violence isn't as buried as he thinks it is.

And when he sees a pack of werewolves threatening a nerdy, defenseless man outside of a doughnut shop, Frank casts a few wards and rolls up his sleeve to wade into the fray.

When Glenn is rescued by his former high school bully from the ani-mages that had turned on him, he had no idea what exactly lied in store for him with Frank. But he knew one thing, if Frank couldn't couldn't beat away his humanity, no one could.

Meet the Author

Bill Kieffer was born in Jersey City, NJ.

He never fully recovered.

A brain injury at an early age left him with some mild issues and just enough aphasia to be amusing at parties. He tries to be very open about these. He doesn't drink, having the bare minimum of inhibitions to begin with. He also tends to describe himself in negatives.

He's happily married to a woman who encouraged him to discover and explore his sexuality. She also encourages him to keep on his meds. They both dabble in writing erotica. He is bisexual but does not stray. She is straight and the relationship is only open in the sense that he tells her everything (they blame rumors to the contrary on his aphasia).

When he is not looking in the mirror, Bill Kieffer is actually a 6 foot tall gray anthropomorphic draft horse that types as Greyflank. He is a member of the Furry Writers Guild and has recently published short stories in several Furry anthologies put out by Fur Planet. Past writing credits include comic books like "Billy Joe Van Helsing: Red Neck Vampire Hunter" and "Great Morons in History, the Dan Quayle Bio."
