What a clever promotion for the Channel War!

M.Edward McNally just posted something quite unique on his blog, The Sable City. To promote the upcoming launch of his latest book, the Channel War, he selected 38 lines of dialogue, one from each chapter, and listed them.

These are just a few of my favourites :

“Even should nothing happen, I suppose the damage to my reputation is done.”

“Be a dear and shoot the archers first, will you?”

You can find the complete list here :


What more can I say, the man is a genius, and I can hardly wait for April Fool’s Day to get my hands on The Channel War. Go Ed!
