Speaking of Cherryh ...
Finished her "Chanur's Legacy" last night. Loved it! Hilfy Chanur is definitely her Aunt Py's niece. Oh, such deviousness! And such evil! Almost a shame these novels will never be movies 'cause the facial expression when she informs a certain individual that he got married half an hour ago ... without actually being present ... would be absolutely priceless. As would any scene involving a mahe flirting with a hani (honestly, if there's ever a sixth volume to this series I want a hani to say "yes" to a proposition, just to see how fast the mahe runs)

"Insolence will not improve your case with the han! You are personally and as a crew charged with piracy, kidnapping, rape, and murder; you are as a head of clan charged with treason, sedition, violation of Treaty law; ..."
"Speeding. You forgot speeding and irregular docking procedure, Ehrran."

I loved the whole progression of the novels, with Hilfy maturing through them and coming into her own strengths and power, and such a rapier-quick wit! I really loved this series.

Oh, me too, for all those reasons ... but this is why we love Cherryh, right?

You'll have to treat yourself to one of the Chanur t-shirts one of these days (though I know you'll likely want the Cyteen designs first) ;-)
