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.
Photos of other cats (or whatever you’ve got!) resting on genre works are welcome. Send to mikeglyer (at) cs (dot) com
