Jabberwocky by Theodore Singer

Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s poem, this novella is beautifully written and rather lovely. If that isn’t enough for you, there are chess-playing telepathic cats.

It’s the story of a young man’s quest to find and slay the fabled monster. On the way he passes through several strange places – an island of bored immortals, a city of chess-playing cats… It’s a melancholy Wonderland for grown-ups, where events follow a magical logic reminiscent of myths and fairy tales.

I found the first couple of chapters a little slow, but the writing is so good I was happy to keep reading.
