Johnny Headcase's Birthday

 


Johnny Headcase's Birthday by Ken MacGregor


Johnny took deep, calming breaths and shifted into a shooter’s stance, not for a moment taking his eyes off the wolf.

It was a huge animal, standing almost five feet at the shoulder. Its eyes caught the moonlight and seemed to glow from within. Its fur bristled with menace.

It was maybe forty feet away, growling, low and hungry.

It sprang.

Johnny drew his pistol from his shoulder holster, lightning fast.

The wolf ran alarmingly quick, closing the distance.

Johnny shot it, putting all fifteen bullets in its head, shoulders and chest.

It dropped, unmoving, at Johnny’s feet. Johnny reloaded and pointed the barrel down at the supine lupine. He waited.

Fifteen seconds passed. The wolf’s body slowly morphed into that of a naked human man. He opened one eye, grinned, and opened the other. “How was that?” he asked.

“Good,” Johnny said. “Thanks.”

The naked man sat up. “Sure thing. Happy birthday! What do you want to do next?”

Johnny Headcase—big, tough as nails and surprisingly quick, especially with a gun and a roll of quarters. When he finds out vampires have invaded his town, he doesn’t hesitate to fight back. Pretty soon, though, he realizes just how many there are, and calls in reinforcements.

Katya—a healer and an inventor with a big heart. While quick and effective despite the wound or condition, her methods require her to harness and unleash the power of sex.

Lydia—a striking young (not quite human) woman who wears her favorite colors of pink and black shamelessly. She's fast and strong with a heart full of fiery determination and she's out for redemption, one bounty at a time.

Gavin—a wise ass werewolf who ditched his last name with the rest of his history. He lives to fight, loves to joke around and is fiercely loyal to his friends.

The four band together and join forces to take down King City's Master Vampire and his horde of vampires, demons, trolls and other monsters unleashed on the city in an effort to rebuild King City in his own twisted image. 

All four parts combined into one complete novel.

Part 1 — Bad Coffee and Worse Luck

Part 3 — Upping The Stakes
Part 4 — Storming The Castle

"A lighthearted, bonkers romp filled with over-the-top violence and casual sex, Headcase is what you'd get if the Underworld movies had a baby with Deadpool." — Patrick Freivald, Bram Stoker Award nominated author of JADE SKY and MURMUR.

“Like the A-Team on steroids, Johnny Headcase and his misfit team of bounty hunters are on the case to bring down a gang of vampires in seedy King City. Funny and fast, and with a great retro vibe, MacGregor and Lipp’s HEADCASE is a riotous and irreverent supernatural crime noir for grown-ups. A ripper of a tale.” — Lee Murray, award-winning author of Into the Mist.
