Technology from the past litters the streets, and the old world has fragmented. But only one thing matters to the man-monster Duane Duarte: his love for the murderous Frenzetta, a 17-year-old half-rat, half-human. Duane Duarte is a revenant, or reanimated corpse, a seven-foot-tall fighting machine engineered from the body parts of fallen soldiers. Frenzetta is a chimera, doomed to enjoy the horribly ecstatic fate of death by orgasm. Together, this delightful couple cut a swath of sex and violence across four continents of a far-future universe.

About the Author:

Richard Calder was born in London in 1956. He moved to Thailand in 1990, where he lived in Nongkhai, a border town overlooking Laos. He returned to London in 1996. His short stories and reviews have been published in many science fiction magazines, including INTERZONE, SCIENCE FICTION EYE and OMNI, and his work has been translated into Japanese.

From Publishers Weekly:

Sex and death, lyricism and brutality mingle in the story (not for the faint of heart) of a brain-eating reanimated corpse's love for a half-human, half-rat princess on a dying future earth. Duane Duarte and his virginal lover Princess Frenzetta, aka Frenzy, travel across continents doing violence to those who stand in their way (the decaying hero, for instance, punches a man so hard that his spinal chord ends up in Duane's fist, and the man's neck snaps "like wet hickory") as they seek passage to the moon, which was once used as a prison and is now rumored to be a sanctuary in Richard Calder's Frenzetta
