Deadbeats (Uncollected Anthology: Warlocks)

Novelette by Annie Reed

$0.99 available in bundle


Cops have a name for dangerous wizards.


Warlocks use magic to kill. To kidnap. To inflict the kind of bodily harm that would drive a mere mortal insane.

Ever since she joined the police department, Willie wanted to work undercover. Pit herself against criminals who abuse women and children for their own personal gain. But Willie never dreamed her first undercover assignment would have her facing off against the city’s most powerful warlock. A master of dark magic that no mere mortal like Willie could ever hope to defeat.

And she doesn’t even have her gun.


Award-winning editor and writer Kristine Kathryn Rusch calls Annie Reed “one of the best writers I’ve come across in years.”

In addition to appearing in numerous issues of Fiction River, Annie’s short fiction also appears regularly in The Uncollected Anthology, stories written quarterly on the same theme, and in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine. Annie's thrilled to be part of the upcoming relaunch of Pulphouse Magazine. Her longer works include the urban fantasy short novel Unbroken Familiar, private eye novels Pretty Little Horses and Paper Bullets, the crime novels A Death in Cumberland and the upcoming Missing in Cumberland, and the suspense novel Shadow Life, written under the pen name Kris Sparks.
