We flippin’ love Cassandra Khaw here at Abaddon. Quite apart from being hugely talented, she’s got the knack for creating the sort of characters we love – tricksy, whip-smart and up to their elbows in gore and trouble.
So it’s no great suprise that we’re collecting Cassandra’s Rupert Wong: Cannibal Chef, her most awesome debut novella, along with forthcoming novella Rupert Wong and the Ends of the Earth into one eye-catching volume.
Food of the Gods is coming from Abaddon in May 2017, so keep your eyes peeled next spring. Until then, he’s a little about Rupert and the mess he’s got himself into…
Food of the Gods by Cassandra Khaw
By day, Rupert Wong – former triad soldier and sorcerer turned chef – prepares delicious meals from human meat for a dynasty of powerful ghouls in Kuala Lumpur; by night, he’s a seneschal and arbitrator for the Ten Chinese Hells. It’s a living, if not much of one.
When Ao Qin – Dragon of the South, god of the seas – smashes in Rupert’s window and demands he investigate his daughter and her mortal husband’s murders, his peaceful (if not particularly comfortable) life comes to an end.
Caught up in a war between pantheons, shipped around the world, going toe-to-toe with Elder Gods From Outside Space And Time, and always taking the time to read the fine print, Rupert’s going to need all his wits and a lot of luck to survive.
