About the Author

Anne McCaffrey, the Hugo Award-winning author of the bestselling Dragonriders of Pern novels, is one of science fiction's most popular authors. She lives in a house of her own design, Dragonhold-Underhill, in County Wicklow, Ireland.
Elizabeth Ann Scarborough, winner of the Nebula Award for her novel "The Healer's War," is the author of numerous fantasy novels. She has co-authored ten other novels with Anne McCaffrey. She lives on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State.


The telepathic "Barque Cats" travel aboard space ships, where they sniff out oxygen leaks and other problems. When a corruption-riddled government plots to destroy all animals across the galaxy under the pretense of a transmissible disease, only a pair of felines and two determined young people stand steadfastly in the way. Frequent writing partners McCaffrey ("Dragonriders of Pern" series) and Scarborough (The Healer's War) join forces in the first of a two-book series, set in a world where cats are valued as much for their hard work as for their companionship. VERDICT With youthful protagonists and an incorrigible cast of cats, this lighthearted sf tale is a good choice for cat lovers as well as fans of the authors.
