    Who wouldn't want to read something with a title like that I mean come on BAD LUCK TROUBLE DEATH AND VAMPIRE SEX Sounds FABULOUS'“Oh yeah” I said I’d forgotten I was a wizard too a green wizard not a somewhat sorcerous private eye with a proclivity for bizarre sex and firearms' This a very short story but amusing ne
