From the incredibly fertile mindscape of one of Canada’s great writers comes a fantastic roller-coaster ride of a story that deliciously titillates as it entwines the reader, seducing, chapter after chapter.

Snake City takes the reader into an imaginary kingdom in the waterways of Florida, inhabited by macho gator-killers and feral pigs with murderous tusks for goring two-legged predators. At the centre of this hallucinatory fable are Cottonmouth, a viper with a penchant for salty language, and his long-suffering roommate Freddie, a retired Canadian Snowbird who has stupidly purchased swamp acreage from a disreputable land developer to build his dream cabin. When both Freddie and Cottonmouth fall in love with Hilda, a shape-shifting swamp woman, a nasty ménage à trois develops. Into the grittier picture enters a religious zealot, nicknamed "Yessie" by the locals, and his stalker Handsome Harry, a ruthless alpha-gator who wants to make a fast-food snack of him. Welcome to Snake City, a devouring adventure in pure evil, blood-curdling terror, and exotic dining.
