Orlando Crispe's Flesh-Eater's Cookbook

David Madsen, Author Dedalus Press $12.99 (224p) ISBN 978-1-873982-42-6
Even Hannibal Lecter would be shocked by the fetishistic culinary and sexual exploits of the Thursday Club, as documented in Orlando Crispe's Flesh-Eater's Cookbook by David Madsen (Memoirs of a Gnostic Dwarf). ""It is the destiny of the lesser to be absorbed by the greater,"" opines cannibal-chef Orlando, ringleader of the group of kinky, upper-crust weirdos who form the club. Recipes and gossipy anecdotes intermingle, as do bodily fluids (think sauces and marinades) and more conventional ingredients. Cerebral, campy and often hilarious, but definitely not for the squeamish.
