Supernatural meets Grumpy Old Men.

Richard had always believed he'd enjoy a few golden years before Death's bony hand reached for him. But what does he get? He gets to live across the hall from friggin' Stan Kapcheck with his shiny bald head and perfect teeth that were all his own, Stan Kapcheck who struts around like a peacock in his leather coat.

Honestly! What kind of respectable senior citizen wears leather?

But Stanley isn't your average senior citizen. He's a Hunter--a slayer of all things unnatural. He reveals to Richard that the one monster which has eluded him is the same beast that killed Richard's wife and it's due to kill again before the next new moon. The two men load up on ibuprofen and prune juice and embark on a cross-country demon-hunting adventure, but when The Devil Herself kidnaps Stanley, Richard realizes the line between Hunter and hunted is very thin, indeed, and the ornery octogenarian only has a few days left to trap The Devil, save Stanley, and slay the monster who murdered his bride.

                              I am so glad you have this up!! 😃👌😎👊
                              Think this is my cue to finally get around to starting a Paranormal reading list under my profile! 😁
                              Got a few other people in mind now, too.
I'd thought Finn was a good bit older up until I saw that picture! Like mid 40s to lower 50s, maybe. Whoops. XD

Love this. Writers are always scrambling for that perfect line and try to remember it (only to forget it an hour later 😓)

I can totally agree with this. Sometimes that’s just not enough.

I laughed out loud at that one :')
                              For some reason I like Stanley
