Overview

When a talented new player joins the perennially-losing sub-minor-league hockey team, the Fighting Aardvarks, it marks the beginning of a winning tradition. But things aren't as they seem, and players begin to change. First line center Hammie learns the truth: the Aardvarks are becoming vampires, and it's up to him to stop them before the infestation spreads beyond just the team.

"Healy's snickering, boyish humor is a highlight of this novel-from the characters' postmodern comments on vampiric pop culture to the hockey teammates' constant good-natured trash talking to the wry snarkiness of the "narrator" (a lovely twist as to the identity of the narrator I won't spoil for you, but wait for the delightful punchline) pull us through this story with tight action and a keen series of cliffhanger chapter endings."--Jenn Zuko, Nerds in Babeland

Meet the Author

Ian Thomas Healy dabbles in many different genres. His superhero novel Deep Six: A Just Cause Novel was a Top 100 Semi-finalist in the 2008 Amazon.com Breakthrough Novel Award. He's an eight-time participant and winner of National Novel Writing Month where he's tackled such diverse subjects as sentient alien farts, competitive forklift racing, a religion-powered rabbit-themed superhero, cyberpunk mercenaries, cowboy elves, and an unlikely combination of vampires with minor league hockey. He is also the creator of the Writing Better Action Through Cinematic Techniques workshop, which helps writers to improve their action scenes.

His goal is to become as integral to the genre of superhero fiction as William Gibson was to cyberpunk and Anne Rice was to urban fantasy. The first book in his Just Cause Universe series, JUST CAUSE, is available now from New Babel Books.

When not writing, which is rare, he enjoys watching hockey, reading comic books (and serious books, too), and living in the great state of Colorado, which he shares with his wife, children, house-pets, and approximately five million other people. Follow him on Twitter as @ianthealy. His ebooks can be found on Local Hero Press, Smashwords, Kindle, Nook, iBook Store, and other online retailers.
