Cats Sleep on SFF: Grand Master of SF H. W. Franke

Nina Horvath’s beloved cat May returns to File 770 for the third time. Her first appearance was here in 2018, and she returned a few months later presenting some fantasy beer. Now, years later, she is sleeping next to books of H.W. Franke. Says Nina —

I am Austrian and a keen science-fiction fan, H.W. was certainly the most influential Austrian science-fiction author. He was an academic jack of all trades. He was a great person and really deserved the title of the “European Grand Master of Science-Fiction” and all other awards he got!

He passed away this year after a long life spent well on this earth, teaching, working, exploring, doing art – but we will remember him for his science-fiction stories!

  1. Those Suhrkamp editions sure bring back memories. The kitty clearly has good taste in science fiction – and she found the signed book, too.
