Effing Feline spontaneously combusts

I, Effing Feline, would wish all the dads out there a happy Father’s Day, but my paws are too slippery and sweaty to type. Depending on which forecast you believe, it’ll be either 114, 116, or 117 degrees today.  We poor cats sweat only through the pads of our feet, which is pathetically inadequate for surviving inside […]

Effing Feline Marks Stuff Down

I, Effing Feline, has yet to received even a single order for one of his drawings, which were a steal at $97.62. Although appalled by the philistine tastes of WeWriWa folks, I’ve decided to seduce you by offering a bargain you can’t possibly refuse. This week only, I’m offering any two meowsterpieces for only $19124! Today’s snippet continues […]

Explore the Afterlife!

What evil would you contemplate for one more glimpse of a loved one? In Future Love, Edward Hoornaert’s collection of science fiction short stories, we meet alien animals called Cuddlies that can let you glimpse your loved ones — even after their death. In the story Love and Death in a Teriyaki Forest, Pericles Harris pursues his beloved […]

Effing Feline has a job to do

I, Effing Feline, have little time. I have an important job to do–curling on Mr V’s lap and purring. He’s a little down, you see, because his oldest son moved to Amsterdam this week, and that’s so very far away. I’m stealing a moment to write this, but I have to get back to his […]

Cover reveal — Future Love

Zoom, zoom, zoom. One new cover reveal on Monday, and today another! Without further ado — Future Love! Future Love is a slender tome that contains five science fiction short stories. One of the stories is a traditional love story, but the others deal with how technology encourages love to go slightly wrong — but […]

Effing Feline Diagnoses Insanity

I, Effing Feline, got a question on last week’s post. Aurora Springer asked, “Why can’t Effing use his paws to paint? My cat uses his paw to drink water.” I can get a longer, more free-flowing line with my tail. Your cat gets its paws wet? On purpose? Insanity! Today’s snippet is from a short story, Thimbleriggers, contained […]

Effing Feline Takes Drawing Lessons

I, Effing Feline, was annoyed when my pet human, Ed Hoornaert (aka Mr Valentine) said I needed a hobby so I didn’t just lie around all day (even though that’s what cats are supposed to do). He enrolled me in art lessons at Parks and Recreations, and it’s actually okay.  I dip my tail in paint, […]

Effing Feline discovers a new emotion

I, Effing Feline, am having second thoughts about getting rid of my big Cousin Lee. He’s gone for good, I’m afraid. After the Fiat-munching episode on Broadway, he got himself a new home where he can mooch as much as he likes, so he won’t be coming back. I got a picture from him. I’ll share it with […]
