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.

  2. 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.
