In a devestated world of the future, married couple Gareth and Margaret decide to dine out at one of London's few remaining food establishments. With food now a luxury there appears nothing on the menu that will satisfy their hunger, that is, until something very large and very tasty looking comes to the restaurant. This is a chilling story of the depths to which humans will go in order to survive.

What starts as a nice couple visiting a restaurant turns into something very twisted and not for the faint of heart. Look the nature of the text its probably something that's not for everyone. Luckily for the author I found it to be the opposite. I love how twisted this story was. The author is a great magician in this story. He holds very little back but yet does so in a tactful and constructive manner. He doesn't just throw gore and disgustingness nonchalantly, he builds an arch and helps keep a fluid flow to what you read. The story surprised me in how engaging it was, considering it really has no redeemable value or deep inter lying message. I suppose there is a bit of social commentary and psychology if you want to go above and beyond but really you are stretching to find a value for something whose value is very simple. This is for those of us who maybe got a kick out of Tales from the Crypt or those interesting Lloyd Kaufman Troma movies or even Peter Jackson's earlier horror romps. Quite a fun little tale spun here.
