Ian Thomas Healy is a prolific writer who dabbles in many different speculative 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 Richelle, his children Patrick, Caitlin, and Zachary, house-pets Smokey, Samwise, Morrigan, Isis, and approximately five million other people. Follow him on Twitter as @ianthealy. His ebooks can be found on Smashwords, Kindle, Nook, iBook Store, and other online retailers.

A motley crew of characters, Christmas eve in space and an exciting discovery.
Futuristic and heartwarming at the same time. Loved it!

Larry Nivenesque - which is a good thing.
The writing is clear and economical, the story-line uncluttered, which is necessary in so short a story, but with enough hints as back story to be engaging.
I'd like to learn more about Rob Stabler (punning surname notwithstanding), the interplanetary milieu he's part of and, of course, his new-found friend.
Oh - I realise I haven't said that I enjoyed reading the story - I did!
BTW: Small typo on page 2 (HTML version, default settings)"2208 Phobos" is given as "2008 Phobos".
