Call For Contributors

Cannibalism and Eating the "Other": Stories of Human Cuisine

Deadline for submissions has been extended to July 1, 2005.

This mainstream book will feature a collection of stories, both
fiction and non-fiction, that explores the dangerous transgressive
desire to eat human flesh and how various cultures interpret this
behavior.

What is it about this subject that, simultaneously, fascinates and repulses us?

Is cannibalism as universally condemned as is commonly assumed?

At what point does it become acceptable? In what contexts is
cannibalism a regular part of societies, past and present?
