Peter Watts visits the effects shop that makes Hannibal corpses:
I have a whole subdirectory of such wondrous fans, ripe for exploitation. A few of them have turned out to be economists; I'll be exploiting them a fair bit over the next few months. But only one of these economists has a partner who makes disembodied bodies for a living.
Lesser FX houses would just build a solid mannequin, slice it up, and paint the slices. Not these guys. These guys built the body from the inside out -- viscera, skeleton, body fat, connective fascia, musculature -- and then carved it up. I don't know if mere pictures can convey the icky verisimilitude of the result.

I suppose this kind of thing is why Tanya and Frank keep telling me I'm not allowed to watch the show.
Somewhere someone is fapping to this.
Does this mean you're a Watts fan, as well? That would make sense.
I'm never sure if I should recommend his books to other people: "You should read this! It's really good! Also, it's totally depressing and, more or less, everyone dies." They're the polar opposite of 'feel good' books. Love them, though. I still find Blindsight haunting.
