Martin Rowe

Martin stopped eating air and land animals in January 1989, to see how long he could live without them. Given that his diet consisted mostly of bread and pig's liver, it wasn't too difficult to see the benefits of a meatless diet. The following year, he deigned to extend the courtesy of non-consumption to the fishes of the sea, after a confrontation with a live lobster, who, in a supreme act of self-sacrifice, became the last sea creature he ate. That was some lobster! Eggs and dairy followed in 1993, and he hasn't regretted anything, although he awaits a truly delicious vegan cheese that makes his salivary glands wrinkle just like Edam used to.
Martin is the co-founder of Lantern Books, which publishes stuff that people visiting this website might be interested in. He is also the author of Nicaea: A Book of Correspondences, a novel of such refinement that only a few, very select individuals have read it. He edited the collection The Way of Compassion and co-founded the monthly magazine Satya, which he edited from 1994 to 1999.
