A short story, 2.5 in the Kitty Norville urban fantasy series about a radio talk show host…and werewolf.

The version I read is a short story included in Kitty Goes to Washington that takes place after chapter one and before chapter two.

My Take

This is the story of what happens during her interview with the band, Plague of Locusts, that she mentions in chapter one.

It’s almost 12 pages with a funny, surprise ending. I don’t know why Vaughn didn’t just slip this into the main story. Set it off with a slight formatting change…something.

The Story

It’s a live interview with Plague of Locusts and Kitty gets to meet them: Rudy Jones is the lead singer, Bucky is on drums, Len plays guitar, and Tim is on bass. Tim Kane looks more doo-whop-a-diddy than Plague of Locusts-looking material, and they all claim he’s possessed by a demon named Morgantix.

Unsure what they’re like, Kitty is quite pleased to find that they’re a fun, polite bunch with each giving all the credit for the band’s success to this musically-inclined demon, especially Tim. Because Tim has a very practical secret about Morgantix.
