"Cats in Victory" Short Story to Appear in Lightspeed Magazine

My short story "Cats in Victory" will be appearing later this year in the new online science fiction mag Lightspeed, edited by John Joseph Adams. For more on the origins of the story, read this post here. Basically the story is a response to some of the stuff that bugs me about the Saturday morning cartoons I grew up with.

And here's a colorized version of Jandan's fan art for the story. This is a prequel image, sort of her concept of what the character Lion might have looked like in his early "Anakin Skywalker" phase, before he turned into the person (er ... cat person) we see in the story.
