On a future Earth sterilized by nuclear apocalypse, two men hike across the desert. Nove the meatcow follows his master, Jebediah, to the last human settlement practicing the ancient art of crop cultivation. Growing food disrupts the symbiosis between meatcow-master couples such as them. Nove worries about his future. Jebediah wouldn’t dare abandon him … would he?
Available April 23, 2017, exclusively from White Noise Press as a hand-crafted, limited-edition chapbook.
“Alternately heartbreaking, thought provoking, and, in several instances, cringe-worthy, Matthew Warner creates an bleak, post-apocalyptic world where survival is a matter of perspective.”
— Horror World
“Warner is a master of the revenge story (see his intriguing 2005 collection DEATH SENTENCES), and here he wraps one in a bleak, heartbreaking post apocalyptic sci-fi adventure. As always White Noise Press presents the tale in a gorgeous chapbook design (with cover art by the author’s wife Deena) so collectors best hurry before this beauty sells out. Fantastic all around.”

“Meatcow Maker is one of those stories which will stay with you long after it’s been read. Recommended.”
