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.

This is a great little short story that's only going to take a few minutes to read, but it will tell you everything you need to know about the author, Ian Thomas Healey. Can he craft a gripping plot with interesting twists and turns? Check. Can he create memorable characters that live and breathe and are completely real? Check. Does this story leave you wishing it were longer, that you could stay in this world for more adventure? Check!
Short stories, like a tasty little appetizer, let you know how good the author's novels are going to be. This western/sf short story was excellently plotted, well written, and just the right length because it left me hungry for more. Now it's time to go find more from Ian Thomas Healey.
