Here’s a Bunch of Science Fiction Books with Cats on the Cover

If you enjoy reading Electric Literature, join our mailing list! We’ll send you the best of EL each week, and you’ll be the first to know about upcoming submissions periods and virtual events.

Look, the title pretty much explains it all. It’s covers of science fiction books with cats on the cover. You need a reason? It will reaffirm your faith in humanity’s ability to publish books with cats on the cover or something. What more do you want from us? (Maybe you want dogs on SF covers?)
