Teenage Fergie and his invisible sidekick, the ghost of a punk rocker named Sid, head to London to find Fergie’s absent father while the Department of Extra-Usual Affairs, led by the irascible Dorothy Culpepper, and Fergie’s mom face demons from hell both personal and literal.
Fergie and Sid have arrived in London… and a whole pile of trouble. All Fergie has to go on in the search for his father is an old photograph and some snippets of information that suggest “Billy” was involved in the music business in the Eighties and Nineties. Tracking down old contacts, Fergie and Sid find themselves getting mired in a shadowy undercurrent of the occult and whispers of entities not from our world. Meanwhile, back in Preston, Fergie’s mum Julie forms an unlikely alliance with Natalie as they try to find the missing Fergie.
As if being an awkward, bullied 15-year-old weren’t enough, suddenly “Fergie” Ferguson can see ghosts. Well, one ghost specifically… a certain punk rocker named Sid.
Sid’s spirit had been trapped in London’s Heathrow Airport for forty years, until the day he met Fergie. Sid’s ghost is now stuck to Fergie–as if Fergie doesn’t have enough on his plate, being raised by a single mum whose idea of parenting is strictly fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants. Now Fergie has to contend with an unruly ghost sidekick and some weird, uncontrollable new “abilities.” How does the father Fergie never knew fit into all this? And why is the Department of Extra-Usual Affairs showing an interest? Never Mind the Bollocks–all of this plus fish fingers, chunky chips and endless pints of anarchy in the new ongoing series PUNKS NOT DEAD!
