Voodoo Vortex: A Badass Hippie Tales (Book 3 of Badass Hippie Tales)

22 pages21 minutes


Combine sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll and throw in a little S & M. Mix with a healthy shot of death--and bingo! Things can get out of hand before you can say "qualudes." Bridget is a harried caregiver who, up until now, has lived peacefully in her hippie mountain town.

Brace yourselves, we’re going on a politically incorrect Magic Carpet Ride through the Voodoo Vortex, complete with forbidden sex in an ashram, lethal doses of chemical pick-me-ups, accompanied by an unforgettable 60s and 70s soundtrack.

Though they called it “waking the dead.” Mort and his sons were scampering back and forth from the funeral parlour to the parking lot with more liquor and had already set up an improvised bar on one of Mort’s notorious “previously loved” coffins. He kept a whole set of them for just these sorts of occasions.

I did not want to be around when the coffin love started. That’s when things always got out of hand....."
