‘Mr Nice’s Bottom’ By Richard Craven

Following a lengthy incarceration, Welsh drug dealer Mr Nice returns to his old ways in company with his sidekick the dissolute aristocratic pimp Lord Metters, first negotiating a wholesale deal for the Wonderful Drug with disgusting gangster Rickman. Next he visits the Bloated Magazine annual luncheon, where he banters with the Tweedledum and Tweedledee of revolutionary socialism and entertains the assembled company with his tales of prison life. Finally, he fits in a visit to his ex-wife Jennifer, who remains extremely bitter about the lengthy stretch she served in a foreign jail. And all the while something is going very badly amiss with his bowels. Matters come to head during a tryst with Metters’s Vietnamese prostitute Trinh.
