Comments: The Shipscat series by Mercedes Lackey is a series of short stories centered around a specially bred for space breed of cats, very quick, fun reads. Good if you like cats, Sci-Fi and/or Mercedes Lackey. Their reviews on Goodreads are quite high. I believe they may all be gathered in the book Werehunter, but are also available individually in other anthologies, as well as for Kindle, which is where I'm reading them. :)

  1. Haha, great update! I've read about as much as you have.. Damn those daily responsibilities that keep us from reading! (:
    I would love to get paid to do readathons. I would do a readathon every single day.
