meet Dr. Hyde, the mad scientist in Art Slade's THE HUNCHBACK ASSIGNMENTS. Dr. Hyde's passion is grafting mechanical pieces onto animals and humans. it works sometimes— e.g., the sadistic Miss Hakkandottir who has a metal hand (with retractable razor blade fingers). it fails sometimes— e.g., the poor hounds who cannot seem to survive the operation that replaces their skull, jaws, and teeth with metal.

you'd be a fool to miss the first book in this full-steam(punk)-ahead series. Random House will publish it 9-22. HarperCanada pubs the book. . . tomorrow! yay!
