Having been born and raised in Kinderhook, NY, the town where Washington Irving penned The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, it is perhaps no surprise that Scott J Laurange found himself from an early age drawn to the supernatural and the macabre. Thus steeped in the history of American gothic literature, it was inevitable that he would add his humble voice to that mighty chorus which resounds through the ages. His unhealthy love of disco, his wacky sensibility, and his incorrigible pomposity permeate his unusual take on the genre. He currently resides in Texas with his wife, son, and four cats.

A fun and creepy read! Caterwaul is a short story that builds at a steady pace, with just enough hints to induce a serious case of the creepy-crawlies, and enough open questions left at the end to make me jump every time I hear skittering in the walls for the rest of my life. The characterization of cats is incredibly realistic and at points had me laughing out loud. It reminds me very much of some of Neil Gaiman's best short stories. Definitely a must-read for anyone who loves cats and Neil Gaiman. Which, arguably, should be everyone on the internet.
