Review: Death on Taurus by J. M. Porup

. @hjbentham. @toholdaquill. #sciencefiction. #book. #review.

Another excellent and striking contribution to the genre by J. M. Porup.

Along with Dreams Must Die, this is an excellent book to start with for any reader new to J. M. Porup's sci fi. This epic story won't disappoint, and the only way you can discover this for yourself is to download.

From the book description on Amazon:
On Taurus, there's only one good way to die. 
On the bullfighting planet of Taurus, in the far distant future, a genetically engineered race of half-man, half-bull stages ritual blood sacrifices to the gods—human viewers light-years away. Vizzer, the high priest who presides over the daily slaughter, loathes the fights and wants to end them. 
When news arrives that the humans have destroyed themselves in an interstellar civil war, he deposes the king and outlaws the fights. But not all the humans are dead. Carlos the Creator lies in stasis on Taurus itself. Vizzer comes face to face with an enraged and ancient god. And in so doing, he must also confront the truth of his own savage nature.
