Just in time for pagan/christian holidays, here is the latest Vegan Black (are you imagining the drums?) Metal Chef!
A story about a far-future galaxy, spaceships, alien artifacts, terraformed planets, ftl-superhighways, the lot. But it’s also beautifully told, with a story-in-story framework, a mythical earth, descriptions of music, sounds, smells. And humor. Take this:
Hugh sniffed the meal’s aroma and made a face. “It lacks the True Coriander,” the Fudir said, without even looking up. “It lacks something. What’s the ‘true coriander’?” “No one knows for certain. We find it called for in many recipes, but whether a vegetable, a spice, or the flesh of some rare Terran beast, who can say? It was found only on Old Earth and the secret of it has been lost for centuries.”
Yes! The new VBMC (Vegan Black Metal Chef)! Sorely needed for these cold days (Northern hemisphere), here are some Hell-Hot Smoothie Spells.
