Meatnik is something I have been working on for a while. It’s a pulpy, schlocky tale set in the future. Meat is a thing of the past. The drug market is controlled by the government. The lucrative black market trade is now human cells, as cartels try to put meat back on the menu.
Durn is a muso, who drops a few cells on the side. At band practice, he gets a call – and gets shot at.
Little does he know people have been watching his drops, checking out his DNA. Turns out he could be the person who could solve the missing meat link.
What follows is an entertaining, gripping and comedic adventure into cow smuggling, danger, and DNA deals.
