So now the kittens will start to inhabit every picture John takes. It will start with indoor pictures, then they will photo-bomb the sunsets, and then they will sneak into the hotel parking lot pictures, and finally they will start to encroach on the Big Idea cover shots.

Goodbye to the Kitten
My Loaded Claws, My Lonely Kitten
The Kitten Between
Kitten Games
Kitten of Innocents
similated Cuban’s Guide to Kitten Santeria
Kitten Junkies
Kitten Moving Really Fast
Kitten of the Imperium
Storm Kitten

Yup, I also went through my kittens-galore phase (6 kittens at once! even better!). I didn’t have a blog to share all the kitten-wonder, though.

My award for Most Intriguing Title goes to the Assimilated Cuban’s Guide to Quantum Santeria. I’m not Cuban, but I often find myself in a superposition between rational understanding and emotional commitment, and I can’t fully assimilate to either side. Would be interesting to see what Hernandez is up to.

Speaking of superpositions and critters famous for being in them, the most intriguing feature of the picture is obviously the one that’s “not included”.

Placebo Junkies looks intriguing for a couple of reasons. First, it’s got an intriguing title. Second, Thing One is cute, but I really can’t read a kitten.

And once again, John reveals his evil cabalish plans by showing us only Tor books, and definitely absolutely no Baen books. :)

Gotta agree that Cuban’s Guide and Placebo Junkies are the most intriguing titles, judging purely on titles. Though Loaded Gun, Lonely Heart isn’t too far behind. As for names, Nye is the main one that leaps out at me. She’s collaborated on a bunch of stuff I’ve liked. Kitty is cute, but I don’t need more feline companions at the moment.

That Cuban’s Guide … Quantum … title wins for most quirky, intriguing title, followed by Placebo Junkies, but that name, Bonesteel (if read as “Bone Steel” instead of Bon-e-steel / -stell) is really intriguing besides.

Is Thing 1 looking for trans-dimensional portals, there? Or purr-using titles? (Ouch, sorry.) Literary cats are always welcome.
