Severance

Wow, check this out:

Sixty-two entries, each in the voice of a beheaded historical, mythical, animal or modern figure, make up the collection. Each is exactly 240 words, Butler's estimate of the number of words that could be spoken by a decapitated head before oxygen runs out.

A very to-the-point book cover.

I love the idea-and the cover.

Startling stuff. Couldn't resist blogging about it. Will be looking out for this one.

Great concept, but I picked this up and paged through it.

It's not something you can sit down and read. More like a bizzare Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

No way I'd pay $15 for this gimmick book.
