The sport of ice hockey is going through a transitional period, losing popularity in the United States even as it gains momentum in other countries. The Hockey Dad Chronicles is the touching and funny story of one season in the youth hockey career of Ed Wenck's son, Oliver, when he played for the Indianapolis Junior Ice. Hockey parents spend an inordinate amount of time and money on their child's sport of choice -- considerably more than soccer, football, or basketball parents dish out. They get their children to the ice rink for 7 a.m. ice time, they travel with them to other states for games every other weekend -- and if they're anything like Ed Wenck, they spend a lot of time sitting in bleachers wondering at the absurdity of it all. As youth hockey grows ever more popular, increasing numbers of parents are seeing their lives taken over by their children's hockey careers. The Hockey Dad Chronicles will be a familiar, amusing, and moving reminder to them -- and to all parents who devote themselves to their children's extracurricular activities, whether they're sports, drama, or dance -- of what it's all about.

This is a journey with Indian women’s hockey for the last 10 years. It chronicles each and every tournament the women have taken part in since 2010; dwells on how they fared, evaluates significance in winning and losing, with an eye for detail. Each player's career, profile, entry into the international area and their growth are traced and presented with compassion. Besides the team's performance in international forums, how select players evolved from wannabe to winning mascots is a natural corollary to the extensive work. The second part of the chronicle is devoted to statistics, a veritable treasure trove.

Sherm Reinhardt's adventures in Borschland continue in the sequel to Skater in a Strange Land. After a season of hockey fame, political intrigue, and romantic complications, Sherm Reinhardt's life is finally settling down. He's happily married, enjoys his kids, and captains Borschland's most storied ice hockey team. When a homeless man claiming to be the Borschic "Saint of Light" Willem van Noos appears, asking Sherm to protect Borschland's most sacred Flowering Branch, Sherm is more than skeptical. But as swiftly as the Branch blooms after 300 years of dormancy, Sherm's troubles sprout, too: his sister is arrested for treason, he's booted off the team, and a Shadow Saint shows up, this time promising Sherm and his family eternal youth if they drink a tea brewed from the Branch's flowers. Willem assures Sherm that if he follows the Shadow Saints, a cataclysmic war will ensue. But who can pass up the chance for immortality?

In Puckstruck, Stephen Smith chronicles his wideeyed and sometimes wincing wander through hockey's literature, language, and history. On this journey to discover what the game has to say about who we are as Canadians, he seeks to answer some essential riddles. Can hockey make you a better person? What exactly is the Swedes' problem? Where did the hook check go? Should those men really be permitted to keep punching each other in the head? If hockey is the best of us, is it also the worst? Is there hope?
