Adam “Bucho” Rodenberger Reading/Signing

The Machinery of the Heart: Love Stories is an immersive and interactive second short story collection from Adam "Bucho" Rodenberger that compiles 18 stories revolving around the topic of love in some form or another; love of people, love of ideas, love of objects, love of the self, loss of love, or no love at all. While the stories in this collection are more traditional in nature than his previous collection (Scaring the Stars into Submission), they still contain Rodenberger's signature explorations in the fabulist and surrealist worlds to help keep the avid reader both engaged and pleasantly surprised until the final page.
