I don’t know what gave me the idea to do a list of the best movies with severed digits – in this case, digits is not meant in a mathematical way, but in the fingers and toes way – but since all lists are inherently arbitrary constructed and a little stupid (AFI’s 100 Years…100 Laughs, anybody?), it seemed all right just to embrace these lists for all their stupidity and pick something outre.
So, here it is, the ten best movies that prominently feature a severed finger. Or toe.
(Incidentally, I thought about calling this ‘pieces and parts’ but chose an equally silly title.)
Hey guys, this story originally appeared in my collection Special Editions as a short story. Well, I enjoyed the main character so much I decided to bust him out on his own and follow him up. Very soon a second story in the series will appear, so keep your eyes open for that.
In the meantime, if you want to read the story but are unhappy with the price of the single story – $0.99 – I suggest buying the previous collection for the Kindle, which was also $0.99, because it will get you not only The Piano, but three other stories as well. As a bonus in that Kindle Edition you’ll get the first chapter of my novel, Peck: A Book. Can we say cross-promotion?
Or, if you don’t want to pay for anything, look for The Piano to go perma-free sometime in early March. I’ll keep you posted on that.
