This is Macbeth in 2030. The apocalypse has come and gone, and Earth is a smouldering wasteland. For the last remnants of the human race there is no possibility of a future. In desperation they set about butchering one another before they choke to death in the toxic vapours enveloping the planet. If you enjoy your violence ripped, hacked, pulped and skewered, and your sex sadistically pornographic, you’ll love Kikaffir. And for extra titillation you’ll find scenes of cannibalism and bestiality, interspersed with a disembowelling and several beheadings. And before you get to the main rape sequence there’s even a wonderfully graphic episode that will delight the coprophiliacs. It’s all so gross you’ll be laughing aloud by the end of the book. And be warned: there’s also some brain food tucked away in the plot for those who are really greedy. Enjoy! Kikaffir is the second in Ian Martin’s Shockspeare Series. Which means you just have to read Pop-splat.

About Ian Martin

When I was 17 I developed the desire to become a writer. But I was beset by feelings of existentialist confusion and a sense that I was entirely unqualified to comment on the world in general and human nature in particular.For more than a decade I led the life of a drifter and a barfly. I worked at many jobs -- insurance clerk, storeman, schoolteacher, labourer, farm foreman, leather worker, factory supervisor -- for periods of 3 months or less. I also depleted the Unemployment Insurance Fund whenever I could.In order to confront the fear and perplexity I felt on contemplating suffering and death I worked, on and off, for 3 years as an orderly in a number of state hospitals.In 1980 I exiled myself for a year on a remote island (Gough) out in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. On returning to the mainland I was unable to say that I had achieved anything more than a certain degree of detachment.The biological imperative to replicate my genes then compelled me to find a mate and produce offspring. This entailed taking a regular job, and for the next 17 years I toiled ceaselessly at the construction of houses and other brick and mortar structures.At the age of 49 an electro-chemical explosion took place in my brain. I "awoke", realising that I now possessed a worldview, and that I had acquired enough experience and insight to get on with my writing career.For the past eleven years I have led a reclusive existence in an isolated part of the Southern Cape, and have produced four major works: The Life of Henry F**kit 1950-2015, The Water Tower, Pop-splat and Kikaffir.
