Pardon the Interruption—Selling books by amputation!

Prepare yourselves! This is by no means your ordinary book trailer. With unsuspecting charm and grace only the most skilled of surgeons can master, author Max Barry lends a satirical twist to the usual trailer with a sneak peek (literally) of Machine Man. While not a Dorchester title, a trailer of this finesse deserves spotlight attention!

Don’t try this at home. So help me—if I start getting e-mails that you’ve all gone and hacked off your limbs, you can’t say I didn’t warn you. I’ll certainly be impressed, but lacking in sympathy.
