Steve Beard's new novel Meat Pupper Cabaret is genre listed as science fiction on the back but it is so much than that What Beard's done is take a lot of conspiracy theory and London mythology and put it through the blender of imaginative fiction The result is the best new novel I've read in ages Beard uses the ground work laid down by other writers as a spring board to bounce completely out of orbit Meat Puppet Cabaret is in certain ways a remix; but through all its appropriations a uniue and distinct voice booms out The genesis of this material goes back a long way but its been coming together in the form Steve takes it up in since the nineteen nineties A key reference point here is the London Psychogeographical Association LPA and its work on the use of ancient ley lines by the occult establishment including the British royal family amongst others to secure the ongoing hegemony of the ruling class But this is the LPA rewritten through the prism of William Burroughs and Michael Moorcock with a dash of J G Ballard and H P Lovecraft thrown in for good measure However Beard is also hip to dance culture and the graphic stories of Alan Moore and Grant Morrison particulary From Hell and The InvisiblesRead the full review here This book was just weird And ya know that's okay The constant interference of film script or dramatic script or whatever that was was annoying But I think the point of this book was to be annoying so I guess it fitsI don't know if Meat Puppet uite reaches satire There is a difference between satire and purposeful annoyance There is really great science fiction that is satire Vonnegut Lafferty But this contemporary movement toward the bizarre is not uite on par It does make a reader scratch the head though So Viva La Cabaret not sure what to think great ideas a little pretentious maybe however i think that a book which strays so far from conventional narrative it should have exciting language
