THE BIG MEOW cover excerpt

Life’s already too busy for the little black wizard-cat Rhiow and the other cats of the New York City worldgating maintenance teams. Coming home from a long day spent preparing to move the Penn Station worldgates, Rhiow finds her litterbox occupied by another cat — who then vanishes.

At first she thinks she’s hallucinating. But her mysterious visitor, a wizard-tom called Hwaith, reappears bearing a dire message from the past. He reveals that a string of earthquakes striking the Los Angeles of 1946 are indicators of something far more troubling. Something is trying to subvert the Los Angeles worldgate to its own purposes. “The Lone Power?” Rhiow asks. “No,” Hwaith says. “Something worse. Something from outside.

Rhiow and her team find themselves caught up in ever-deepening peril and mystery as they make the dangerous trip back to post-war Los Angeles. Their intervention plunges them headfirst into the glitzy, murky world of 1946 Hollywood, a smoggy film-noir landscape filled with glamorous starlets, flamboyantly corrupt studio heads, wicked, pampered cats with hidden agendas, unsolved murders, snoopy screenwriters, scheming PR flacks, and a shadowy, celebrity-ridden cult dabbling in knowledge better left alone—knowledge which could destroy their world’s present and doom its future, if the dreadful promise of the Year of the Black Jaguar is fulfilled…

Reviewers say…

“Possibly the best bit of asexual representation [in protagonist Rhiow} I’ve ever read, and it’s quite touching…. The storyline is fun and beautifully creepy. It’s a bit fitting that this book, the one set in and around Hollywood, feels absolutely the most cinematic of the three.” —Grey Patterson
