Check out an excerpt from the latest novel by Nicolas d'Estienne d'Orves:

I am not an arm of justice. For novels, I took on the role of executioner, I am master of high works. Readers need that. They feel better, strengthened this conviction. The suffering of others, it's reassuring. There are always worse off. In fact, I am needed, we have always been essential to the smooth running of the company. We are a pivot. Remove us was a strategic mistake. Since then, people crave. They need the carnage. See their passion for movies gory, horrific for new for the world's pain. See their morbid joy to behold cataclysms. See the hours they spend on the Internet looking for snuff movies , hand in pants, tidying themselves to wound?

In our time, it was simpler. As the circus games calmed the fears of the people, as they faded inequities, we act of public safety. Water carriers, we abreuvions the crowd.

They need us as we need laws, sovereign. As it always takes the shackles. Since it is necessary to have a pillory. For example .

And pillory, I recreated. Pillory a paper guillotine words, a huge gallows phrases, stories, colliding, jacked, bleed, be eviscerated.

We think we are unique, but it is only the result of his lineage. We are the product of our parents. Life, fate, feelings, everything is already done. It's written in our genes. Culture, education? Smoke and mirrors! Eight centuries to hold the ax had to register in my memory.
