Banana Does Not Look Like This

Banana's a brown tabby with gloriously misshapen ears. This actually looks more like my first-ever cat, The Cate. (Except for the nose. The Cate had 63 dots on an otherwise flawlessly-pink nose.)

But there are many good things about the illustrations for this Nature interview. For one thing, Banana makes two appearances, the second in the pull quote (which contains a typo, but then again, cats always were agents of chaos). For another, I alone of the four of us retain some semblance of humanoid/porcine ancestry. And last but not least, I'm the only one who isn't naked.

Here's the article itself. URL for the director's cut is contained therein — it's not up yet as of this writing.

Great article! Congratulations! Ah, the sweet, siren allure of the solicited opinion...and in print, no less! I'm always up for some good Crichton-bashing.

Sadly, it's all down hill from here. The only reason we become artists, is that some day, someone might ask us, in a public forum, what we think about something. Now that momentous occasion has come and gone. Well, at least you make lots of money from this, right?

Seconding the Crichton bashing - it warms the cockles of this Anon's heart.

I'm sad nobody mentioned _Cyteen_ in reference to the cloning issue, but maybe that's in the full version. And Cherryh's writing a sequel, so you've still got time to catch up before it's out...

Your character is strangling a bug. Which seems oddly appropriate. Good article but I wanted more, the url isn't working just yet.
