HEAD GRENADE

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.

Now, 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. But things take a sinister turn when a nefarious individual starts hunting him down, determined to uncover his secrets.
