Cats Sleep on SFF: Starsight

Simon Bisson pushes the envelope in his contribution to the series. (And who doesn’t?)

Well, not exactly sleeping, as our two recent arrivals, the literary calico Maine Coons Lyra and Phryne, are very very active indeed…

And not entirely sff, as Bisson reveals:

Here’s Lyra sitting on a book starring her sister’s namesake Phryne Fisher. Quite advanced reading for a four-month-old!

Cats Sleep on SFF: The Return of Hyper Comics

Michael J. Walsh, who broadly defines the word “cat” to include extinct avian convention mascots, forwarded this photo of Izzard, the Capclave dodo, with the new Steve Stiles collection. Walsh reminds us:

Steve did many covers for the Capclave program/souvenir featuring dodos and usually something to do with the GoH.

Cats Sleep on SFF:
Biology and Manners

Robin Anne Reid’s cat is taking in the lessons of a new book:

I think I’ve probably talked about this project on File 770, and some filers might be interested (though pre-emptive apologies for cost of it, alas)! Hild sleeping on the just released Biology and Manners collection of essays on Lois McMaster Bujold’s science fiction and fantasy!

Cats Sleep on SFF:
West of the Sun

Mark R. Kelly has been probing for books to consider for his next Black Gate column.

For Edgar Pangborn, I thought to start with his first, West Of The Sun, which I have a copy of, now sitting on my table where my cat, Potsticker, is lying, stretched out in the Bay Area heat.

And looking through my stacks, I realize I have the Old Earth Books edition, courtesy Michael J. Walsh  from nearly 20 years ago. And Potsticker is sitting up.
