The universe's most feared restaurant critic is on the hunt for the greatest meal of his life -- from a writer already compared to Vonnegut, Pynchon and Douglas Adams. John Tamberlain is The Tomahawk -- the universe's most feared and famous food critic (though he prefers 'forensic gastronomer'). He's on the hunt for the galaxy's most secretive and exclusive establishment, Hotel Grand Skies: the Empyrean. A haven where the rich and famous retreat to bask in perfect seclusion. Where the waiters know their fish knife from their butter knife, their carotid from their subclavian artery, and are trained to enforce the house rules with brutal efficiency. Blurring the lines between detective story, horror and sci-fi, Hunters & Collectors is a mesmeric trip into the singular imagination of M. Suddain. It is as if, at his freewheeling best, Kurt Vonnegut had been cast into the future and asked to re-imagine The Shining.
