Today’s mail brings my author copy of Hvad Fluffy Vidste: 16 Science Fiction Katte, published by Science Fiction Cirklen in Denmark. This anthology of cat stories reprints my very first ever professional science fiction story, “A Matter of Ceremony,” which would be reason enough to be inordinately pleased to have it included.
It’s all double-chocolate icing on the cake to find that I’m sharing a ToC with: Mercedes Lackey, David Barr Kirtley, Gene Wolfe, Pamela Sargent, Philip K. Dick, Sean McMullen, Andre Norton, Fritz Leiber, Saki, Edward Bryant, Reobert A. Heinlein, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Jody Lynn Nye, Paul Melko, and Damien Broderick.
. . .I can honestly say that I never dreamed that my name would appear in a Table of Contents that also included Saki.
And in addition to all that? It’s a beautiful book.
But, don’t take my word for it, here’s the cover:
