Readers of the Bastion, the Yahoo group for science fiction and fantasy cat-lovers, recently heard from Cordwainer Smith’s daughter, Rosana Hart. She had updated her website about her father and wanted them to know it includes “a piece about a telepathic experience I had with one of my own cats, ‘The Return of C’Mell,’ sort of.”
The gallery of family photos also has one of Cordwainer Smith with Melanie, the cat after whom C’Mell was named.
The site update has already been praised on The Crotchety Old Fan.
