Starbirth Assignment SHIFTER

An illegal mind-restructuring drug threatens chaos. A black ops team searches for the source.

Lock Harford is only one of two ‘Shifters’ – capable of moving through a different dimension using the power of thought and invaluable to military and intelligence organisations – at least until Starbirth appears on the streets of America and Britain.

As distribution spreads across the world the results of a Starbirth pandemic are feared as criminal and insane Shifters wreak havoc. Lock and a small unit of covert operatives are given the task of finding the source of Starbirth and shutting it down, but their efforts are hindered by corrupt, ruthless people with their own agendas.

Starbirth Assignment Shifter is the first book in J M Johnson’s Starbirth Series: fantasy adventures set within a contemporary military basis.


Starbirth Assignment Shifter is book 1 of the four-book series.

The Shifter Dimension

Lock Harford, a teleporter (Shifter) who can physically move through another dimension using only the power of thought, works alongside British Special Forces in trouble spots around the world. His employers at the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) need his help to eliminate some lethal weapons. Terrorists are using the weapons to inflict heavy losses upon British Special Forces in the conflict zones of Afghanistan and the borderlands by Iran.

Taking two Special Air Service troopers with him, including his colleague Jimmy Mackenzie, Lock is embroiled in a battle far greater than the one he anticipated. The situation becomes even more precarious when personal enemies, who wish to eliminate Lock and Jimmy before they can find the weapons, pursue them halfway across the world.

The Shifter Dimension is book 2 of the four-book series.

Shadow Team GB

Lock Harford, a teleporter who can move his body through a dark matter dimension using only the power of his mind, knows that the only way to release Britain from the grip of marauding teleporter criminals is to fight like with like. His employers want him to head up a team of enhanced-ability operatives whose special powers will be created by controlled procedures rather than substance abuse of the illegal drug Starbirth, but the dubious quality of candidates delays the process. In the meantime he is working flat out to protect his family and his country against dark threats emerging from the madness of Starbirth addiction, hindered by devastating treachery closer to home.

Shadow Team GB is book 3 of the four-book Starbirth series.
