About the Book

A missing comic book genius. An all-powerful hallucinogenic designer drug. Max Bowman is haunted by both of them - and he just might lose his mind as a result. When Max takes on the mission to find the long-lost creator of cult superhero Blue Fire, he ends up getting dosed with a chemical that upends his sanity just when he needs it the most. Now he's got to contend with zombies, a clueless cult leader, a sword-wielding hipster and a secret CIA spook program - all while trying to keep his mind from crashing and burning for good.


Joel Canfield set up a faux website,, which played a part in the book’s storyline. You can follow Joel Canfield on Twitter: @JoelCanfield.. And watch the trailer here:

About the Author

Blue Fire - authorJoel Canfield spent 25 years in television marketing telling you what to watch, and sincerely apologizes for claiming that the situation comedy She’s the Sheriff had the laughs locked up. A novelist, screenwriter and ghostwriter, Canfield has lived in Chicago, Illinois; Detroit, Michigan; Los Angeles, California; Auckland, New Zealand, and his own personal Pennsylvania trifecta, Pittsburgh, Wilkes-Barre and his hometown of Bethlehem. He now resides on Roosevelt Island in New York City with his favorite blondes, writer-editor wife Lisa and dog Betsy, but he will undoubtedly move again, because that’s just what he does.

Canfield’s books include the novels Dark Sky and Blue Fire (the first two books in the Max Bowman series); What's Driving You???: How I Overcame Abuse and Learned to Lead in the NBA (co-authored with Keyon Dooling and Lisa Canfield); Pill Mill: My Years of Money, Madness, Sex and Drugs (co-authored with Christian Valdes and Lisa Canfield); 226: How I Became the First Blind Person to Kayak the Grand Canyon (co-authored with Lonnie Bedwell); and StorySelling and Mission-Driven Business (both co-authored with Nick Nanton and J.W. Dicks). Blue Fire was a 2016 Silver Honoree in the Benjamin Franklin Digital Awards as well as a semi-finalist in the Book Life Prize in Fiction competition.
