Zombies, and ghosts, and voodoo queens, oh my
I don't want the case of a missing FBI agent, but he disappeared after asking a New Orleans voodoo queen to bring his dead and cremated wife back to life. So now I'm thinking if Madame Rousseau can hand out new bodies to the dead, maybe she can do the same for my ghost friend, Esther.
Hey, everyone has ulterior motives, myself included. But when bullets fly, and the bodies pile up, who will survive the wild trouble in the Big Easy?
What price would you pay for eternal youth?
Would you be willing to feed on the energy of people around you even if it drains them of their free will?
Would you be willing to kill?
This short story originally appeared in the collection Quick Shots by Gary Jonas, so if you own that, you already have this.
Note that this includes a bonus excerpt from Modern Sorcery, the first novel in the Jonathan Shade series.
The first three books in the Jonathan Shade series
Modern Sorcery (Book 1)
Death by dark magic
As soon as I get over my ex, her father hacks her mother apart with a sword.
She hires me to prove dark magic was involved. Hey, it's what I do as a paranormal investigator, so I get why she thinks I can help.
But my secretary, Esther, a ghost from the 1920s flapper era, and Kelly Chan, my magically engineered protector, are dead-set against me getting involved. With all the deadly magic flying around, they may have a point.
Because the sad truth is, I don't have any magic of my own.
Acheron Highway (Book 2)
"He stole my heart, Mr. Shade. I want you to find him and steal it back."
Between the crazy dead lady with a necromancer for a stalker, and a lovesick goddess, who wants me to turn over her lover, I'm buried in relationship issues.
Dead people won't leave me alone. Zombies, skeletons, anything that can shamble out of a grave, but are they working for the goddess or the necromancer?
One thing's for sure. There are no safe exits from Acheron Highway.
Dragon Gate (Book 3)
Ritual murders, guilty clients and inhuman attackers, oh my.
Stephen Noble, a rich old guy on the board of Dragon Gate Industries is executed by a clan from another dimension. Since I still owe a favor to the company, they hire me to provide executive protection services to the dead guy's grown kids. Graham and Rayna.
Rayna is hot, so that's all right, but Graham is a jerk. And it turns out they stole a dragon from the Marshall Clan and brought it to Boulder, Colorado.
Yeah, you heard me right. I said dragon.
Now Kelly and I are faced with protecting spoiled rich people from a team of assassins and the blood-hungry beasts they brought with them. Those things will kill anything in their path.
And did I mention the dragon?

The Men of Anubis are coming, and boy are they pissed.
Make a note of this: gods don't appreciate it when you cast one of their brothers into the Void. Who knew?
Now the Men of Anubis are coming, and it's time for the final showdown. To have even a small hope of success, I need to build a team with some heavy-hitters.
My team includes Esther the ghost, the Norse demi-god Thor, Chronos (I don't trust him), and not just one, but two versions of Kelly Chan.
But how can I defeat beings who can warp time? Especially when some of my so-called allies want to see me die?
Warning: This book eats souls.
A Satanic cult abducts two girls, slaughtering the rest of the family in a brutal ritual. To save the girls, Peter Chessman, an occult specialist, recruits the only man ever to face off with the cult and survive: Mark Hunter.
But Mark is a pale shadow of the man he was, and the cult is run by the wealthy elite. They own politicians, judges, and key members of the Department of Justice. They are untouchable, and time is ticking down to the children’s sacrifice.
Small towns hide deadly secrets…
When Helen Cather dies, her daughter, Melissa, must fulfill her mother’s final request to spread her ashes in Mystic Hollow’s fishpond. When Melissa arrives in the small Colorado mountain town, she feels like she’s stepped into the past. There are no cellphones, no internet, no cable television. She soon discovers that the residents have been reliving the year 1973 for forty-six years.
The dark secret of Mystic Hollow is tied up in Helen’s relationship with two men, Ernest and Dennis. One is Melissa’s biological father … and one is a killer.
Lights, Magic, Murder!
Going undercover as a movie stuntman in Florida sounds like fun. Of course, the last guy died, and while on the surface it looks like an accident, there are hints that there could be a murderous witch in the crew. Why else would I find a spent hex bag on set?
Now I'm tracking a murderer, and that means the movie might not be the only thing to get shot on location.
A quest for Hitler's skull...
A Washington politician hires me to track down Hitler's skull for a magical ritual. It seems that Hitler didn't die in the bunker, but instead took the ratlines to Argentina.
Kelly and I team up with a medium, who can speak to Hitler's spirit, and we're off and running on an international hunt for Hitler's grave.
Alas, we're not the only ones after the magical skull, and the other player is a crazy Nazi who craves immortality and the power to bring about the rise of the Fourth Reich.
What could possibly go wrong?
An evil awakens...
Kelly wants to leave me behind, so I need a case to prove to her that we should be working together. A simple ghost from an old New York City asylum seems like just the thing.
Until things go wrong and people start dying because I woke up an evil entity filled with the torment and anguish of the people who died on Ellis Island.
Sucks to be me.
Now, the only way to stop it is to get some help from the Manhattan branch of DGI. But that means dealing with my older sister. She blames me for the death of our parents, so she's more likely to have me run out of town than lift a spell book to help.
