Head Grenade

Troy Henderon

Manny never asked to be different, to have a power that could bring the dead back to life. But when he resurrected his dead goldfish as a child, he knew he was cursed with an inexplicable power. Decades later, he’s working in a Brisbane hospital, surrounded by a cast of oddball characters who make his ordinary life feel anything but. His doomsday-prepping aunt, his unravelling housemate, and his new animal-activist girlfriend who’s immune to pain quickly complicate his life. Things take a sinister turn when a nefarious individual starts hunting him down, determined to uncover his secrets.

"Troy Henderson’s debut novel, Head Grenade, is a genre-bending thriller peppered with comedy, street philosophy, science fiction, and romance right here on our own turf. Love in all its forms alights in darkness and memory—and not even the doomsday preppers are ready for this!”
