Description de l’éditeur

Eleven years after its original publication, this is the third edition of D'Lacey's cult hit, containing an introduction by Michael Wilson and a brand-new foreword by the author.

In Abyrne, a strange town surrounded by a wasteland, the eating of meat is a sacred obligation. The town's strict laws are brutally enforced by a ruthless Baron and a merciless Bishop. Adored by the townsfolk is Richard Shanti, Abyrne's famous bolt-gunner – the most efficient slaughterhouse worker in living memory. In private, however, Shanti is a gentle man; a husband, and father to twin girls. The growing guilt about his murderous job weighs him down. Beguiled by a rebellious heretic, Shanti uncovers the harrowing truth behind Abyrne's history. When the town's corporate and religious factions come into conflict, he must choose a side. By fighting for what he knows is right, Shanti will risk everything and everyone he loves. Meanwhile, the townsfolk are hungry. The townsfolk must be fed…

“Without reservation, MEAT is one of the most literate, astonishing, and intriguing books I've read in years.” - DAVID NIALL WILSON
