Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From legendary editor Ellen Datlow, Tails of Wonder collects the best of the last thirty years of science fiction and fantasy stories about cats from an all-star list of contributors. The Stephen King Story is UNCOLLECTED, and has not been in print since the Horrorstory III anthology.

Review:

"Few things alarm the experienced reader more than the prospect of a science fiction, fantasy, or mystery book that involves — or worse, fetishizes — cats. This reprint anthology is the exception, an assortment of 40 stories by authors who are for the most part willing to take cats on their own ground. Datlow avoids the trap of a too-narrow premise: though there appears to be a slight bias toward horror, the stories are various within that field, from Jack Ketchum's ghost story 'Returns' to Michaela Roessner's highly scientific 'Mieze Corrects an Incomplete Representation of Reality' and Edward Bryant's brilliantly repellent 'Bean Bag Cat.' Other tales are amusing, like Lawrence Block's 'The Burglar Takes a Cat,' or gently sentimental, like Dennis Danvers's 'Healing Benjamin.' This is that rarity of rarities: an anthology of cat stories worth reading." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
