Garrett - Occult Bounty Hunter #9

by

As Garrett scrambled to the roof with a heavily singed backside, Rollins had already jumped off the cottage and was doing his best Usain Bolt impression to his parked up pick-up truck. He flipped Garrett the bird before driving off into the night. Amazing what a little adrenaline and the threat of being eaten alive can do to a man.

Two weeks later, Garrett was back home. He had a lead on Rollins from a source down in New Orleans. Garrett wondered if Philip Marlowe ever had to put up with any of this kind of fucked up shit.

    Many thanks to those of you who were patient and kind enough to read all nine parts of the series. Garrett and I am grateful for your support. :-)

    Garrett needs a holiday now, I'm guessing. Brilliant series, fast-paced, funny and exciting, nice work Horrorshow.

    Very good, Horrorshow. Your writing never ceases to stimulate my interest in genres I typically don't read.

    I have an image of Garrett standing in front of burning eldritch abominations with Vera Lynn singing in the background...

    Just me?

    @Drew - I'm delighted that the series felt fast paced and amusing along the way! I certainly wanted the episodes to have a punchy, pulpy and slightly irreverent feel to them. Thank you for being one of the keenest followers of Garrett's adventures! :-)

    @OPR - that's a *massive* compliment; thank you so much. I'm so grateful for your continued support. :-)

    @Neil - I'm so pleased to have inspired such a fantastic image in your mind's eye! Thank you for sharing it! :-)

    @Chloe - please don't underestimate your skills and talent. I do have a few ideas for Garrett but I don't think they lend themselves too well to drabble form. I saw this series as a bit of light hearted relief and nowhere near as dark as the themes I most enjoying exploring with my writing. I'm in your debt for the encouragement you always show for my humble scribblings. :-)
