Medic

by Ian Harac

Book Image Not Available
Overview
The apocalypse came, the apocalypse went, and now there is nothing left but mad robots, madder life forms, and desperate survivors. Self-awareness long since left the bounds of flesh, and the non-human sapients that survived the cataclysm are as lost and desperate as anyone else. One such is Doctor MacIntyre, a self-aware ambulance. This former Lieutenant of the United Bay Autonomies is now a freelance medic offering help to whoever needs it: and he has no shortage of customers. In the violent, desperate world MacIntyre travels through, he can rely on nothing but his wits, his sometimes unwilling allies... and a few missile racks he had installed, just in case. He finds himself battling violent fanatics, would be conquerors of the ruins, and finally, a force that would snuff out any hope of rebuilding a better world.

About the author
Ian (“Lizard”) Harac is a longtime science fiction fan and Alpha Nerd. After 20 or so years of waiting for someone to spontaneously offer him writing gigs, he actually started submitting things, and discovered, to his surprise, that people liked them and bought them. He began his writing career in 2000 and became a well-known freelancer in the gaming business, working on many products for Dungeons & Dragons, GURPS, and the Dying Earth. This is first published fiction, and he hopes not his last. He currently lives in Indiana, where he shares a small house with one beloved wife and five usually-beloved cats.
