CHEMO: How I Learned to Kill

Buy Your Copy

Funded via a successful Kickstarter, CHEMO: How I Learned to Kill is my Badass Action-Horror novel that’s been published, podcasted, and adapted.

With Tooth and Nail, with Gun and Blade I’ve come.’ So begins the 8th battle Hymn, a biofeedback device Agent Joseph recites daily. As the newest recruit Joseph and his fellow agents fight cancers of the body of mankind:’ everything from insane telekinetics to memetic pathogens to a lovecraftian abomination budding in the deepest, blackest trench of the Pacific ocean.

Through every mission he will rely on his conditioning, his growing ruthlessness and the support and guidance of the man who saved his life – Master Agent Burke. But when Burke is forcibly inducted into the all-as-one hive mind, Joseph -and the organization he reluctantly serves- will have to face the most dangerous enemy yet.

Praise for J.M. Perkins’s work:

With his restless imagination and incisive intellect, J. M. Perkins brings something almost wholly unique to the table of genre fiction. All of his work, even his fantasy tales and gaming excursions, edge into science fiction of a distinctive stripe — because his preferred science is the dismal science’ of economics. His acute perceptions of the transactions and exchanges of everyday existence imbues virtually everything he writes with a revealing new perspective on the complex Über-Game that we call Human Life.” — Steve Dandois — Canyon Design Group

One of our favorite writers…” -Robert Heminger — The Avalon Game Company

J.M. Perkins is superlative.” — Brett Jackson — Creator, BEDTIME FOREVER
