Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Former Weird Tales editor Scithers launches a planned series of cross-genre cat anthologies with a vow to avoid the clichéd talking feline. Although the few reprints—by Lovecraft, Leiber and Baudelaire—are classics, the original stories are the real reason to buy this volume. Standouts include K.D. Wentworths Cat Call, a charming cats-eye-view mystery, and Geoffrey Maloneys Not Another Black Cat Story, featuring a novel deal with the Devil, as well as darker tales, like The Eye of Ra by Jim Hines, a story of murder and revenge set in ancient Egypt, and Mary Turzillos short but effective science fiction story, Scout. Despite a few sour notes (most disappointingly in Nancy Springers by-the-numbers mystery American Curls) and twee moments, Scithers commendably unearths solid new material in a theme that has been milked extensively for decades. (Dec.)

Format: Paperback
The captivating cover of "Cat Tales" is only the beginning of the fun in store from this book. It is a delightful collection of stories and poems from a variety of authors, including Fred Chappell, Fritz Leiber, and H.P. Lovecraft, plus some writers not-so-well-known--yet. All the entries feature intriguing felines intrinsic to the plots. Mysteries, fantasies, comedies, and cozies are all represented, and a good read is guaranteed.
- Betsy Stowe, author of Calico Tales...And Others

My book came in with a tiny hitch, (a little later than expected, but that's expected up here) but in much better condition than I anticipated. I look forward to doing business with these guys, again =:)!
