Diane Duane's 'The Big Meow'

Welcome to the glitzy, murky world of 1946 Hollywood, a smoggy film-noir landscape filled with glamourous starlets, flamboyantly corrupt studio heads, and wicked, pampered cats with hidden agendas; a city of unsolved murders, snoopy screenwriters, scheming PR flacks, and a shadowy, celebrity-ridden cult dabbling in knowledge better left alone -- knowledge which could destroy the world's present and doom its future, if the dreadful promise of the Year of the Black Jaguar is fulfilled...

(Want to read the full "back cover" blurb for The Big Meow? It's now over here.)

"The Big Meow" Chapter Six update: a slight delay

Folks, apologies. I'm having some hardware issues with the computer that are going to make it impossible to get this chapter up before (my) bedtime tonight: it'll be posted tomorrow. (mutter) Sorry about this.

Chapter Five goes free-range

Chapter Five of The Big Meow is now available online for non-subscribers.
Chapter Six will be going online for subscribers around the 15th of December: check here around then for more details.

Also, please note that we're going to be redesigning the main website, and this weblog is going to be incorporated into it... so the blog will be changing its address in coming weeks. Both the new address and the old one will be active for at least three months after the addition of the new one.)

By the way, if you're a subscriber and you didn't receive a notification that Chapter 5 was ready, please either leave a comment on this posting or email me (assuming you haven't done so already) Please put the word PICARESQUE in the subject so I'll know what the message is about.
Thanks, all!
