    1. 08/22/06I have been reading more short story collections this year than I normally do. These collections have been grouped by theme and the latest one I've just finished for a book ring focuses on cats in fantasy, though a few of these stories I wouldn't class as fantasy.The short story is by it's nature short and I prefer the "short shorts" and the stories in Constellation of Cats are all between 18 and 30 pages long, about the ideal length for me. They're long enough to keep me interested but [...]


    2. From oriental tales to science fiction, from inquisition and witches to contemporary commune, thirteen tales of cats and their people. Told from the cats' perspective, these tales are sometimes amusing, whimsical, occasionally sad but always entertaining. A nice light summer read.


    3. Anthologies live by how strong the collection of stories in it is. Unfortunately, for me this volume had a lot of misses as well as hits. Stories like "Three-Inch Trouble" and "Star" were strong and moving, really capturing the feeling of what a cat is, and how they can affect the lives of the people around them. Others, like "The Stargazer's Familiar" and "Under the Sign of the Fish" were more disappointing, in turns tropey and somewhat silly. If you're a fan of cats this isn't a bad read, thou [...]


    4. Despite the cover, no cats dress in fancy clothes, but they are often anthropomorphic. Not that it is a bad thing in sci-fi and fantasy stories. And being a cat lover myself, I appreciated the stories of clever, stuck up and clearly more clever for their good felines. There were several that made me choke up a bit - the elderly cat protecting his humans from a supernatural threat, and a cat saying goodbye to his terminally ill owner. It was a fun, quick read.

    6. A collection of short stories featuring cats. Includes authors: Mary Jo Putney, Andre Norton and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough.The two stories I liked were: The Stargazer's Familar and Under the sign of the fish.


    7. This is a collection of (13 to be exact) short stories where cats play a major role in the lives of humans they have adopted. These cats have special and unusual talents that they use to protect their human companions. I enjoyed this book.


    8. This book is a collection of short stories about cats. Most of the stories were "meh". There were a few that I liked quite a bit, but the majority of them varied between cheesy and uninteresting.
