As Lilian Jackson Braun, Rita Mae Brown, and others have demonstrated, cats and crime make a winning combination. In this amiable collection, genre veteran Gorman brings together 11 feline mysteries by an assortment of well- and lesser-known authors. Perhaps the finest story in the volume is "Cat Nap," by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, a moving and lyrical tale of a deeply sad man's love for his formerly abused cat. Also among the highlights is Gorman's own "The Christmas Kitten," in which attorney Sam McCain and Judge Eleanor Whitney, familiar from the author's novels, play second fiddle to a kitten named Sophie. Stories with talking cats often cross the line between cute and smarmy, but Lillian Stewart Carl's "Sardines for Tea," about two "veddy British" kitties that solve a jewel theft, never lets the unlikely premise interfere with the fun. Sure to be popular with the kitty crowd. Jenny McLarin
