If someone could tell me how to do so, I could show you folks a picture of the cover--it will be changed in one respect. Instead of saying Catalyst, a novel of the Barque Cats it will say Catalyst, a tale of the Barque Cats (which is a better play on words. P'ter, I'm sure you at least will agree having a penchant for puns) Anne likes it too but like me, she's a sucker for a kitty face.

Eann, I would love to see the new cover, and I'm sure most people on this site would as well.

There are two ways of showing pictures here:

If your cover already appears on the web somewhere, you can click on the ikon above the message editing box that looks like a little envelope with a mountain on it and type in the URL address of the picture. (You can obtain the URL address on a PC by right-clicking the picture on the web page and requesting "properties".) For example, here is a pointer to the cover of "Deluge" on your web site:


If your cover doesn't already appear on the web you'll need to put it there. If you have an image file on your computer (JPEG format is best) you can upload it to one of a number of free photograph sharing web sites such as http://photobucket.com/ or http://www.flickr.com/. You need to create an account before you can upload pictures. (Beware of the adverts - that's how the sites make their money.) Once your picture is on the site, you can create a link to it using the "insert image" (mountain in an envelope) ikon as described above. You will notice this ikon inserts an "IMG" code into the message window. Some of the photograph sharing sites let you copy and paste an "IMG" code directly, which saves time.

Actually (he says remembering the Spanish Inquisition for some reason... ) there are three ways of including a picture here. The third way (if you're not keen on using a third party site) is to talk nicely to Cheryl and Hans and see if they can allow you to create a profile picture like Granath's new baby picture.

I need help homing Barque Cats! My copies of Damia and The Rowan seem to have migrated somewhere unattainable. Can someone help me with the name of The Rowan's planet and the circumstances of Rascal's adoption? He is on a spaceship right now waiting to go to his new home. Along with quite a lot of other cats. I think the Molly-Daise is going to have to change its name to "the good ship Cat Shelter" pretty soon.

The planet is Altair. Unfortunately the book is in Delft at the moment (and I'm still in Wales) but he's a present (ish) from the Stationmaster (name forgotten) after Rowan's Pukka is destroyed. I can't remember all the details but I'm pretty sure there were a lot of conditions attached and it was an exceptional circumstance. He was definitely a kitten. If no one else helps out by tomorrow evening I can take a look Sunday/ Monday evening.

The stationmaster on Altair is Gerolaman, who (as Edith posts) gives a very young Rascal to The Rowan after her pukha (Purza) was destroyed by a minx called Moira. Said Barquy was from the Mayotte. It is implied at least that the Mayotte is a military vessel.

Rascal is described as having patterned tawny fur end with creamy underfur. Itas eyes are silvery-blue and it has seven claws per paw. Gerolaman has to promise the Mayotte that Rascal will be neutered at six months.

Rascal deserts The Rowan enroute for Callisto but rejoins her there on her wedding night.

P'ter has it right. (Although I didn't recall the 7 claw thing!)

The book Damia actually has more information in general about Barques (although not much more on Rascal) than the book The Rowan because Afra's pretty cat-crazy as a kid and he hangs out around spacer crews that have the cats and collects holos of them. I'll try to dig out my copy of Damia today if it'd be helpful. I think at one point Afra telepathically spoke to a Barque, and got something like "Rrrowr" back (which the Rowan says is more than she's gotten). I don't recall if it was from Rascal or not, however...

Once again I recommend books.google.com as a research aid. It might not give you the complete manuscript, but it at least narrows down where to look since you can search within the book.

Incidentally: there was a goddess Damia!

DAMIA was the Hora (season) goddess of the fertile earth. The Argives worshipped her together with the goddess Auxesia (Spring Growth), and described the pair as Kretan maidens who received divine status after they were wrongfully stoned to death.

Thanks so much for all of this--I need details so ardent fans don't threaten me with flaying alive by seven-clawed paws. Our kittens have the requisite number of toes--they are very very clever. Actually, Rascal is probably playing dumb in the books because these kitties are bred and trained to rule the universe--mewaahahahahahahah, but in a nice furry way. Book 1 is due out on my birthday, March 23, 2010 and book 2 (Catacombs) will be out on the same day 2011. More details about the kitties would be great--whatever anyone remembers or can find. I don't go into the Tower and Hive universe but if one of our beloved kittens ends up there, the crews are gonna talk.

I was going to protest this, but then I realized I'm one of the hardest (or at least, most vocal) Talent-series nitpickers out there. Not out of malice, mind you...just because I like putting all the ducks in a row

Are these new books in a sort of...alternate universe then? Or in the Talent universe, but not really interacting with the Towers? ::curious::

Default Re: New Talent Books: "Barque Cats"

The real problem with making these books any part of the Talent universe is that they're contracted with a different publisher. There is usually a "you owe us the next book in the series" clause. These books are standalones that reference the cat characters but really nothing else from the Tower and Hive universe. In fact, probably how we will reference it is have Rascal be sold to the Mayotte for later distribution to the Rowan and company. But our cats don't know any more about her universe than she did about theirs and they have quite a backstory. We have to squeeze everything we wanted to do into the two books so it's a good thing we don't have to reinvent Annie's other universe and meld them. That part of the story's already been told.

Yeah, only Rascal was born on the Mayotte as per The Rowan, since he was given to her as a barely weaned kitten. Looking forward to the story!

Yup, one of a litter, not the only one. Sorry, I was a bit unclear there.

I just wanted to add my input... I loved the Tower and The Hive series and I am really excited that there is going to be this addition to those worlds with Barque Cats ! I am a little hesitant since I have yet to read any of Anne's Books that are co-authored and have heard both good and bad things. We'll see right?

You haven't read any co-authored books? Have you read any of the Brainship series? Most of those are co-authored; so are three of the five "Planet Pirates" books.
