Call out the name of some nobody from Finland. It's all up to you!
"The NHL draft of one of the most dangerous events in all of sports. Anything can happen," said Blythe Bly, the pseudonym used by the eight people that actually wrote the novel. "Readers, like real NHL general managers, can bravely choose to either build a squad that's respectable or make mistake after mistake and sink their team into an dark abyss of sadness and irrelevance. It's hours of fun!"
Excerpts from HORROR AT THE HOCKEY DRAFT are after the jump. Look for volume 2: THE SECRETS OF THE SLY SNOWMAN coming in October!
