Kyell Gold is the Pen Name
of a Californian novelist who is chiefly known for writing male homosexual
romance literature for the Furry Fandom
. His longest published works are in the Argaea series — Volle, Pendant of Fortune and Shadow of the Father — and the Forester Universe — Out of Position and its sequels Isolation Play and Divisions, as well as the novels Waterways and Green Fairy and the novella Bridges. He is also known for his short stories.
Gold, who represents himself as a Red Fox
, is one of the most acclaimed furry writers, having won more Ursa Major Awards (the main awards given in the field of furry fandom works) than anyone else. He currently has eight awards (all since 2005); beating the previous record of six, held by Usagi Yojimbo
creator Stan Sakai. Gold has also been acknowledged by non-furry writers. In 2010 he was nominated for the WSFA Small Press Award for short fiction.

- The Forester series
- Out of Position
- Isolation Play
- Bridges and Waterways, which are set in the same universe, but are a separate storyline.
