Fiction: Twisted Tales of Cannibalism
- Wed 24 Apr 2013
- 6:30 pm
Hic Dragones and Twisted Tales present a night of dark horror fiction with Conrad Williams (Blonde on a Stick, One, The Unblemished), Stephen McGeagh (Habit) and Harry Whitehead (The Cannibal Spirit). From Jeffrey Dahmer to Hannibal Lecter, cannibals are the subject of popular fascination in both fiction and crime reports. However, they have a much longer heritage and their monstrous appetites can make them seem something both greater and lesser than human. Join us for an evening of readings by authors known for their cannibal fiction, before engaging in discussion about this primal taboo.
Hic Dragones is a small press publisher and events organizer based in North Manchester. This event is a tie-in with the Cannibals: Cannibalism, Consumption and Culture conference running on 25-26th April 2013.
