Masked Filers’ Cats Sleep on SFF: Stars Beyond by S.K. Dunstall

JJ’s cat does all the memes alongside a copy of Stars Beyond by S.K. Dunstall.

With everyone cooped up at home, people are coming up with novel ways of amusing themselves, and I’m no exception. I’m sure that you can guess just how the credential felt about this. No cats were harmed (affronted, yes, but not harmed) in the making of this meme. Treats were liberally applied following the photo session.

Cats Sleep on SFF:
The Cats of Ulthar

Ken Richards’ cat can’t sleep – no wonder, look what he’s reading!

Here is our elderly Birman Ruskin, boning up on his HP Lovecraft on a wintry day in self-isolation.

He has chosen an appropriate story at least, whilst he takes possession of MY recliner chair.

Cats Sleep on SFF: Boskone

Lis Carey gives credit to where it’s due to a “cat-sized critter”:

Dora wishes the sf world to know that this past weekend, she did her part for the cause, working the NESFA sales table at Boskone for a whole hour. She was shocked to discover that this involved allowing people she’d never sniffed before to carry away books.

Cats Sleep on SFF: New Dimensions

Mark Kelly, who maintains the indispensable SF Awards Database, introduces us to a cat and the collections she’s sleeping on:

Soybean, our 2-1/2-year-old female, finding a spot on the sofa where I’m sorting anthologies (and other books) for my SFADB anthologies project. The towel was there to protect the books from the afternoon sun; I turned it back a bit for the photo. At right is a complete run of Damon Knight’s Orbit anthologies, in paperback and hardcover; left of that, paperbacks of Delany/Hacker’s Quark/ books and other pb anthologies. Ordinarily I would never let one of my cats settle onto a stack of books, but in this case the towel softened the impact, I think. Underneath Soybean is a complete run of Silverberg (& Randall) New Dimensions anthologies.

Cats Sleep on SFF: Ray Bradbury

John King Tarpinian sent in this photo from the good old days when he assisted Ray Bradbury on his rounds:

Here is Ray leaving for an event over the watchful eye of Hallie, short for Halloween.  Hali would wait outside for Ray to return, then meet him when the limo returned.

Cats Sleep on SFF: Kitty Cadaver

Hampus Eckerman had some luck —

Some months ago I participated in the #AuthorsForFireys projects on Twitter and managed to bid for Narelle M. Harris’ book Kitty Cadaver. This week I got it and Sir Scrittles and Nevyn were mightily interested.
