I, Effing Feline, learned today of a new creature I want to hunt. It’s called a frumious bandersnatch, though I’m not sure whether frumious is part of the creature’s name, or is an adjective as in “Genius Feline.” Either way, I’m gonna hunt it down then pounce and rip and tear and bite and glory in the kill.
Love thy Galactic Enemy will be available September 9. The heroine, currently calling herself “Lou,” knocks out a guy she thinks is an intruder, then discovers he’s an innocent new roommate. Here’s the aftermath, which isn’t what most people seemed to be thinking.
He raised his head enough to look around then said, “No one else here . . . must’ve fallen.”
His face was shiny with sweat and his eyes were shadowed and sunken. She’d been wrong about him limping; he had staggered, instead, and not from drunkenness. He was ill, which was probably the only reason she’d managed to bring him down.
He tried to rise but managed to push himself only onto one elbow. “I feel like I got hit by a frumious bandersnatch.”
She hopped over his legs to retrieve her clothes from the shelf by her bunk; her back felt cold and exposed as she turned away to throw on her blouse and slacks. When she was dressed she continued to face away from him, trying to regain her composure.
He didn’t know she was the one who attacked him? That could be good or it could be bad — good if he didn’t tell the cops she’d assaulted him, bad if he didn’t realize she’d scratched his nose.
Effing Feline here again. While you were reading today’s commercial, I went looking for a bandersnatch so I could pounce, but I couldn’t find one. Do any of you know where I should hunt?
Love thy Galactic Enemy
Abandoned to the enemy’s tender mercy
There’s something new on the cover of this novel. Can you pick it out?

You did? Good for you!
Yes, the cover now has a blurb by well known science fiction romance author Linnea Sinclair. Only a smidgeon of her quote fits on ebook covers, but here’s the whole thing as she sent it to me. Thanks so much, Linnea!
“Mystery, mizzets and mayhem populate this lighthearted tale of interstellar espionage and romantic intrigue.”
—Linnea Sinclair, author of the Dock Five Universe series
