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.

Cats Sleep on SFF: Critical Point

Karen Babich shares a snapshot of a cat using a genre book for a pillow:

I live with some cats who are very fine creatures. One of them, Finn, recently rested on my library copy of the newest Cas Russell novel by SL Huang.

Since the cat had his back to the camera in that photo, I’m also including my favorite recent photo of the Finn, in which he happens to look skeptical. (As one does.)

Cats Sleep on SFF:
Hamilton: The Revolution

Chris Barkley’s cat must be the only creature who ever went to sleep in the middle of something by Lin-Manuel Miranda!

I was working on the article in my office and when I turned around to take a break, our cat, Nova, was curled up with Lin-Manuel Miranda’s tome about the hit musical. 

If you accept the premise of it being a I work of alternative history (which I ardently DO!) then this should easily qualify for your ongoing series…
