For Christmas: a fippokat

As you may know, the novels Semiosis and Interference are set on a distant planet and feature a small animal called a fippokat. The fippokat is based on my sister-in-law’s imaginary childhood animal.

This year, for Christmas, I commissioned a friend who is a fiber artist to create a fippokat for her as a gift. The artist did a fine job. Fippokats are cute, cute, cute.

My sister-in-law was delighted — especially by the curly tail, which is canon. The little stuffed animal was like imagination come to life, she said.

Happy holidays. May your best-imagined hopes for 2021 find a way into the real world.
