Furry Reading Challenge

In case you haven't jumped to the challenge of Furry Book Month yet, I've got some reading suggestions for you. They are very broad, you'll find, because the genre is broad. Also, I suspect you'll see some familiar titles on the lists. Find an old favorite perhaps, or snatch something new that looks interesting, and give books with bite a try!

For my part, I'm still reading Gods With Fur. Nearly done now, in fact, and this month I've also read:

The Necromouser and Other Magical Cats, which I highly recommend, and also Stormfront, a well-written military space opera short.  All great reads.

If, however, you'd rather attempt this toe tipping into new territory for free, I have even more suggestions.

Possibly the best short story I've read in years is free for reading. It's also just won the short story Coyotl for 2015 -- The Analogue Cat can be read here; https://www.sofurry.com/view/956867 and it's brilliant, so please go read it.

I also have two furry serials available for free online as well as a few short stories as follows:

Much Ado About Bluebottles
The Earth Tigers

Beast (horror/scifi)
Live Cargo (humor/scifi)

I'm going to be linking to some lists and articles about furry-lit as well, but before I post that, here's a short list of furry stories I consider must reads. :) (Which Just means they're my favorites)

Wind in the Willows
Black Beauty
Call of the Wild
Algonquin
Bambi
Animal Farm
The Island of Dr. Moreau
The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Blue Bear
Cat's Eye (Andre Norton)
Iron Cage (Norton)
The Jungle Book
Barsk: The Elephant's Graveyard
Watership Down
The Book of Night with Moon (Diane Duane)

And if you still can't find something you love to read, I suggest this list: http://dogpatch.press/2015/09/25/the-well-read-furry/

which has an update addendum here as well:
