June Books 5) The Meathouse Man, by George R.R. Martin and Raya Golden

A nominee for this year's Hugo for Best Graphic Story, adapted and illustrated by Golden from a story first published by GRRM in 1976. I have to say that the story itself didn't hugely appeal to me - Martin's early work was very dark indeed, and the theme of animated corpses serving people's industrial, entertainment and sexual needs is pretty grim. I was also struck by a lack of physical variation among the women characters, as illustrated, compared to the men. Not quite my cup of tea.
