Celebrating H.P. Lovecraft’s interest in our fascinating felines.
This week’s kitty is a Dick Francis illustration for the story “Kreativity for Kats” (Galaxy, April 1961), anticipating the now-lost Catscan website by some 40 years. “Kreativity for Kats” was Fritz Leiber’s sequel to his acclaimed “Space Time for Springers” science-fiction cat story.
Over time “Space Time” became the first of a series of ten super-kitten and other cat stories by Leiber, which were collected together in the limited-edition illustrated hardback Gummitch and Friends (1992). I’d guess a new audiobook for that might Kickstart quite well, today, with the permission of the Leiber estate?
