Dead Cat Bounce

Gerard Houarner; illustrated by GAK

A 30-page illustrated fable detailing the efforts of a cat, sacrificed to an Egyptian goddess, to return to the land of the living. Sort of. This is a fable to horrify the inner child in all of us.

“Gerard Houarner.  Write story.  Use minimal language.  Make R.C. Matheson seem wordy.  You.  Read chapbook.  Laugh and squirm.  Fun.  No bounce back to publisher.”—Garrett Peck, Hellnotes

“This poignant story manages to mix Don Marquis’ Mehitable with Karloff’s Mummy in a charming creepy-funny fashion, a tone captured perfectly in numerous B&W drawings by a mysterious artist known only as GAK.”—Paul Di Filippo, Asimov’s Science Fiction
