About Ian Thomas Healy

Ian Thomas Healy is a prolific writer who dabbles in many different speculative genres. He’s a ten-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.

Ian also created the longest-running superhero webcomic done in LEGO, The Adventures of the S-Team, which ran from 2006-2012.

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.

Review by: Dingbat Publishing on Oct. 7, 2014 :
Heartwarming and realistic sci fi short story, if that's not an oxymoron, and it's firing on all thrusters. Four and a half stars.

A motley crew of characters, Christmas eve in space and an exciting discovery.

Futuristic and heartwarming at the same time. Loved it!

Review by: Nimravus on Dec. 3, 2011 :
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".
