One of our members, Donald Jacob Uitvlugt, has a new book coming out next month. He has very generously offered digital ARCs of his book to anyone who wishes to read and review this novel before the release date on June 16th.
Check out the blurb to see if you would be interested in requesting an ARC:
On a multigenerational colony ship five hundred years off course, a lagomorph warrior must survive using only his wits and his sword.
Jiao Tu has been hired to rescue a young kidnapped mousling. A tip leads him to the Below, home to the engines that keep the world in motion. His mission has hardly begun when an encounter with a monstrous being plunges him into the midst of a struggle not only for control of the Below but for the world itself.
Teamed with an untested ratling warrior and the ratling leader of a gang of thugs, Jiao Tu must stop the monster and save the mousling—and the world—before it is too late.
Drawing inspiration from sources as diverse as Leigh Brackett’s planetary romances, Gene Wolfe’s Book of the Long Sun, Robert E. Howard’s Solomon Kane stories, Hideyuki Kikuchi’s Vampire Hunter D, Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo, and the wuxia tradition starting with Water Margins and Journey to the West, Uitvlugt has created a world all his own that promises a far-future adventure unlike any other.
The author wishes to advise that, in addition to fantasy swordplay, there are scenes that may be considered body horror.
Anyone who wishes an ARC may do so by contacting the Furry Writers Guild by Twitter or Email, or by contacting J.F.R. Coates via Twitter or Telegram.

Given this is an ARC Giveaway, it is expected that you only request a copy of this book if you have a realistic chance to provide a review at the book’s release date, or shortly afterwards.
