Default The Cats of Tau Ceti

I was browsing through Ursula Vernon's website, and in her "Older Work" section I found a picture that looks rather familiar!

The Cats of Tau Ceti

I have emailed her to see if there's any story behind that. Thought you'd like to see it - it's another look at a feline-type humanoid.

That's some lovely art. I was going to say it reminded me of some of the covers from Lisanne Norman's Sholan Alliance novels, but I don't want to hijack this thread.

Well, we could always just convert the thread into one about artwork that reminds us of Hrrubans...

Post your cover art, I don't mind!

LOl, good point, Brenda.

Here's Turning Point, which bears the strongest resemblance though the later books are closer to Norman's image of Kusac, as she's said herself.

Ginny, there's a quick cheat. Just right-click on the image you want, then select Copy. Then when you write up a message, paste it right in. It'll be small, like the cover I included in my last post, but it's fast.

Right now I don't have that book at my place. But if you look at Pets Tread you find it.
