In ancient Egypt they were worshiped. In the Middle Ages they were crucified.

Purrrfect anthology (can't resist the pun)

24 stories. All cat related. Some charming, some humorous, all somewhat twisted. This collection has something for the cat lover and the cat phobic alike: pieces that confirm both opinions of our feline friends. Whenever you see Ellen Datlow's name on an anthology, buy it. She pulls together phenomenal writers with samples of their best writing. In TWISTS, you'll find King, Douglas Clegg, Joyce Carol Oates, Tanith Lee, Kathe Koja, Steven Spruill, William S. Burroughs among others. Clegg's "The Five" is an absolutely disturbing tale of a little girl obsessed with the kittens trapped in the wall. "I Gatti di Roma" by Sarah Clemons tells about regret, redemption, revenge. "Marigold Outlet" by Nancy Kress is a sad, haunting portrait of child abuse. This is a horror collection with stories that gross out, that haunt, that terrify. It is a superb anthology with quick stories for the horror fan.
