Galahad Books (Barnes &
Noble Publishing), New York City, 1994,
anthology, featuring stories spanning from the
13th century to the present day, brings together
twenty-six dazzling and diabolical portraits of
cats and their many lives. Here are cats who can
transform themselves into human beings (and visa
versa) and into deadly demons. Here are wise
cats, wily cats, and cats so cunningly wicked
they'll send chills down your spine.
The adventures here are not limited to the world as we know and perceive it. In fact and fiction, Mysterious Cat Stories offers glimpses into the feline world of the supernatural. The mysterious, haunting, and horror stories in this collection capture this much beloved animal's charming and unpredictable nature, while occasionally emphasizing their dark side. Contributors include Edgar Allan Poe, Cervantes, Bram Stoker, Saki, Robert Block, Algernon Blackwood, August Derleth, Washington Irving, Lilian Jackson Braun, and others.
Wild, wily, and winsome cats--some with secret lives--reveal their cryptic side in these supernatural and dark fantasy tales.
