Frank Comments: For some reason I find it difficult to focus on the title text. I wonder if that’s to keep me focused on the cover art?
Published 2002

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning!

    The book included a CD with 25 songs inspired by the book. A quick youtube reveals… GENIUS!

    Enjoying the Industrials under-tones!

    He may have saved Silicon Valley, but he couldn’t find a pair of trousers.

  3. Noel Says:

    That cover is gorgeous. It makes me want to frolic through a field. Wearing just a waistcoat.

  4. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Please tell me that’s his left paw. Please tell me that his penile sheath does not extend past his navel.

  5. DaveM Says:

    Andrew Lloyd Webber joins forces with Michael Flatley for “Cats 2, saving silicon valley!”

  6. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Spoiler Alert!
    Libra saved Silicon Valley by walking over a keyboard just as a disgruntled Microsoft coder was about to unleash a devastating computer virus… and stepped on Delete.

  7. Tat Wood Says:

    The terrifying results of Michael Jackson’s experiments with teleports and pets.
    (Although the song’s better than anything he did after ‘Bad’. And I’m willing to bet that the plot beats ‘Captain Eo’)

  8. Jeff Vader Says:

    I wish Eric Flint had written/edited this masterpiece – it surely deserves the Baen treatment!

    Please tell me this is part of a series of astrological genius.

  10. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @fred: Taurus: The Bull Who Saved Wall Street.

  11. Noel Says:

    Capricorn: The Goat Who Butted the Internet Trolls

  12. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Are all UFOs filled with urine?

  13. FearöfMusic Says:

    Well it’s obvious why he/she isn’t wearing pants. With a torso that long he/she would have to wear a cummerbund, sash, and belt to cover the gap between the pants and waistcoat. And everyone knows cats are notoriously bad when it comes to accessorizing .

  14. Tom Noir Says:

    @FoM: Pssh, tell that to THIS GUY.

  15. A.R.Yngve Says:

    A story about a cat who gives a damn about humans and helps them out. Science Fiction that pushes The Limits Of the Imaginatiooonn…

  16. FearöfMusic Says:

    @Tom Noir-I stand somewhat corrected. Accessorized yes. Fashionably so? Questionable. Fashion… turn to the left!

  17. Katy Says:

    I’d buy this just for the cover and title.

  18. Tom Noir Says:

    Well, they say most cats are colorblind…

    Caption: Bellhop Cat stading in attention near the Metal Horns Gate, ready to serve the customer arriving in a flying machine made to look like head of a cat-eyed, frog cyclops.

  20. Perry Armstrong Says:

    “Karl is offered a job by a manageress at Hotel Occidental. He works there as a lift-boy. One day Robinson shows up drunk at his work asking him for money. Afraid of losing his job being seen talking with a friend, which is forbidden for lift-boys, Karl agrees to lend him money, then turns into a cat.”

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Vincent begins a painting he plans to call “Starry Night,” then the absinthe kicks in.

  22. HappyBookworm Says:

    I didn’t know Silicon Valley needed saving, but glad bellboy cat could help.

  23. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I’m not sure where Bellhop Cat was standing, because that doesn’t look like Silicon Valley in topography or flora.

    I can haz telekinetic powerz from other locashunz?

  24. JJYoyo Says:

    The castle-like structure in the background has a roof shaped like a cat’s lower teeth. Nice touch.

  25. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Sargeant Friskies Lonely Hearts Band. (Yes, it is new Years eve and I am a bit drunk, why do you ask?)

  26. fred Says:

    The cat would be more impressive if it had brought affordable housing to Silicon Valley.

  27. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @fred: Very much yes (I live nearish there and am glad of a windfall in one of the bust periods, so that Mr. xn and I were able to buy then).

    Or it could save SV now if it gave Elon Musk rabies so he’d act…

    Hey, wait a minute…!

    This is vanity publishing at its vanity-est. I bet the authors owned a long black cat which inspired the book and the CD, and they need to get out more.
