Beware of the Cat…

For millennia cats have haunted human consciousness, either worshipped as gods or persecuted as the incarnation of Evil, no other creature has aroused such violent emotions.

In this collection of stories – which range from a macabre tale by a sixteenth century monk to the work of contemporary masters – all the cats are different. There are talking cats, starving cats, murderous cats, cannibalistic cats, cats that can take human form, ghost cats, and a cat who might be the Devil himself.

They only have one thing in common – all are terrifying …
