I have to say, Jefferson and I were a lot less cranky with each other after ours.

I'd be very interested in doing this part, but my knowledge of anthropomorphic material in graphic novels, animation, art, and other media is as limited as it can be while still being a gamer.

That doesn't have to prevent you from applying, though of course we'll take it into account.

And don't forget Thundercats (the first two iterations); that's definitely in the realm of GURPS Furries.

I'm curious how much of the Sliding Scale of Anthropomorphism the book will cover.

The focus will be levels 38. But I expect to look a little above and below.

Looking forward to this because I want to update my 3rd edition adventure I ran a Gencon many years ago. It was called "A furry thing happened to me on the way to the spaceport." Basically inspired by the Albedo comic.

That's about the range I was hoping for.

Why not call it something like GURPS: Animalfolk/Animal People? It describes the content without risking any associations with the reputation of the Furry Fandom.

I think the audience of this is made up partly of people who belong to that fandom, and partly of people who appreciate the material and are not deterred from doing so by anyone's reputation. So I personally prefer to have a title that will appeal to them and make it clear what this book is about. If it were established that furry fans themselves took such a title as offputting or offensive, that would be a reason to think about other titles; negative reactions from people who want to keep their distance from furriness aren't such a concern.

Secondarily, "animalfolk" might invite the supposition that this book is about otherkin. And that's certainly not the case. We have GURPS Powers: Totems and Nature Spirits for that. (Hmmm, got to add a cross-reference to that book!)
