The Vole Eater: A Parody of Mike Resnick's "The Soul Eater"
by Barry Ergang
In space, no one can hear you burp.
Sci-fi for foodies? You be the judge. The novelette's protagonist supplies exotic foods to restaurants throughout the galaxy. When he discovers a creature thought to be mythical, a different kind of hunger besets him and it's no longer business as usual in this parody/pastiche of Mike Resnick's "The Soul Eater."
