About Pets in Space®

Pets in Space Books publishes the bestselling Pets in Space® science fiction romance anthologies.
The series was first conceived and launched by authors Pauline Baird Jones and Veronica Scott  in 2015. Their twin goals were to engage with pet-loving readers of science fiction romance and to raise money for a pet-related charity. They selected Hero Dogs (, a charity that raises, trains, and places support dogs with U.S. veterans and first-responders. They published five annual limited-edition anthologies through 2020, and donated generously to Hero Dogs. The anthology made the USA TODAY bestseller list several times and was selected for Library Journal awards.

Award-winning author Carol Van Natta ( took over Pets in Space in 2021 and has continued publishing the annual anthology and supporting Hero Dogs. She also contributed stories to most of the previous anthologies. Her mission is to share high quality science fiction romance stories with pets as an integral part of the action.
