The Murphy Incident

coverI’m happy to announce the second “Victor Tookes Adventure” story is out.  VTA #2 is a short story slightly longer than The Farmer’s Daughter, about 40 pages long.

The story follows Victor and Max during the years skipped in Declaration of War.  It isn’t required reading before you read What Zombies Fear 6 this October, but it does shed some light on Victor and Max’s maturing relationship, Victor’s particular brand of crazy, and introduces you a little more to the older Max, who is fourteen in this story.   I loved writing it, and I hope you enjoy reading it.

Here is the first chapter, if you’d like a sample. For the sake of full disclosure, this is about 15% of the story. The rest is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble for 99 cents.

The Ambassador

The men drove Nyko and his crew to the warehouse they’d designated as their train station and left immediately leaving the six men in the parking lot.  Jonas started to the warehouse, and Nyko called, “Hang on a sec, J.”

Jonas came walking back. “What’s up, boss?”

“We’ve been gone for a while. They’ve had all that time to work the building and our train over. No talking about anything until we’ve had a chance to go over that train with a fine-tooth comb and make sure it’s not bugged. Check the warehouse first then work the train.  We have twenty-four hours to get her ready, make sure no one’s listening.”

Charlotte’s Revenge

Charlotte flipped the fire selector from auto to semi, and swept side-to side, firing every few seconds.  When the bolt clicked forward, she calmly ejected the magazine, pulled a full one from the back of her shiny black panties and slapped it into the rifle.  She charged the handle and repeated the process, firing fairly indiscriminately into the house across the street from the barn.  Empty magazines and shell casings covered the ground in front of her.

“Tay!” she shouted.  “Push for the truck. Stay low!”

Sometime around the sixteen hour mark, in the desolate white room, Nyko realized he had to pee.  In an attempt to take his mind off of the urgency, he started planning.

“What do we have for assets,” he said, breaking the long silence in the room.

“My skills,” said Jonas.

“We’re a strong force,” Said Derrick.

Nyko laughed.  “My brains, your strength and his skill versus sixty men.  If only I had a holocaust cloak.”

The men stared at him blankly as Nyko laughed out loud.  “Come on,” he said, wiping tears from his eyes.  “The Princess Bride?”  More blank stares.  “Fuck all of you, that shit was funny.”
