Cover blurb:
‘You will make war with the beast of the city, and the people will be grateful, and in this way will your fame be fortified.’

Every fifty-two years, the God Xiuhtecuhtli — incarnate for the purpose as a young Mexica male — would give himself in sacrifice in order that the universe should be renewed and the passage of time would continue as it had done before. Those born to other cultures and other eras might be forgiven for their failure to appreciate this great and selfless act.

It was therefore strange that such a profound understanding should arise in one so far removed from the heart of this world, both veteran and victim of the terrible, endless war in heaven, a man the Mexica knew briefly as Coahualxiu bearing a death wish the size of creation...

Note:  Print-on-demand release of the original draft of Against Nature, or as the author puts it: “The Other Side of the World is the novel which Kelly Buchanan of Random Static Publishing said was not without potential, but would need a lot of work, and which was eventually rewritten and published by Obverse Books as Against Nature. This Ce Acatl edition resurrects the original novel on the grounds of it being more or less a completely different telling of the same story - or a similar story - and one which arguably didn’t require quite so much work as its first editor claimed".
