Little, Denise, ed. A constellation of cats.

DAW. 308p. c2001. 0-7564-0016-3. $6.99. SA

This is a collection of short stories, 13 in all, about cats. If the reader is versed in SF or fantasy, many of the authors will be familiar. One of my favorites was "Mu Mao and the Court Oracle" by Elizabeth Ann Scarborough. It concerns the passing of the torch from the king of cats to the next in line and the part a kitten and an older cat have in the line of succession. I also enjoyed Andre Norton's "Three-Inch Trouble," in which an entire space ship is saved by the efforts of a cat to contain small aliens who would take over. A couple of the stories deal with Wicca. Stacey Conrad, Middle School Reading Teacher, Palmyra, MO
