    One thought on “Ice Age”

    1. I ve already reviewed one of the stories in this collection, Lilies, and given it 5 stars, so I ve not really left myself any leeway upwards to review Ice Age, which contains Lilies plus seven other stories for the same price at the time of writing So please consider this a 5star review or something.Anyway, this a great collection of weird, supernatural stories it s hard to avoid calling such stories horror but some of the tales here are designed to do a lot than scare you witless The best stor [...]

    2. Ice Age is a great short story collection in the horror genre Each of the eight compact tales is a gem Mysterious and believable, they come from everyday common place occurrences as well as dystopian futures The results are somewhere between totally unexpected and delightfully, horrifyingly surprising For myself, I am so glad that I ran across this author a happy acquisition as a free Kindle book There are JEWELS in those offerings Of course, this taste of Iain Rowan s work sent me on a shopping [...]

    4. I ve never read Rowan before, so I was really curious when I kicked into this short story collection There are eight stories here They are reprints, so dedicated readers will be already be familiar with them For those new to Rowan, this is a great introduction.The collection opens with a story called Lilies It was Autumn, and the city was at war Oh no War And is that a hint of zombies I was growing a little skeptical about this first one, but by the end, I was hooked Yes it s about war and zombi [...]

    5. Iain Rowan brings together an excellent mix of eclectic stories in Ice Age He is a master of the short tale, an art form that is under appreciated by some of the big publishers Iain s work here is enough to make you fall in love all over again with short stories.All eight stories bring something different to the collection Iain manages to drag you kicking and screaming into the worlds he crafts His moody and atmospheric descriptive writing immerses you deeply into the dark tales he weaves.In som [...]

    6. After having read Nowhere To Go I was delighted for having the chance to read this short story collection by Iain Rowan as well While the former falls into the category of crime thriller, this one goes into quite a different direction which can be best described as speculative fiction with a touch of horror.Once again the author won me over with his wonderfully detailed narrative and how well devised his characters are especially considering that those aren t full fledged novels and he s certain [...]

    7. The first story Lilies was absolutely phenomenal The rest were good, but nothing else quite hit that high My least favorites rating 3 stars were Through The Window the, well, window one , Driving In Circles the car crash one , and The Circular Path the forest one The Call the sea one was probably second best, earning 4 stars Although Sighted not zombies from the other POV of the enemy was pretty good too, as were Here Comes The New Way and Ice Age Ice Age had all of the elements I like psycholog [...]

    8. A chilling, weird, and often sad collection I m actually a little hesitant to apply the word horror , rather than simply going with weird , but upon reflection will say it definitely qualifies.Short stories, with plain writing the settings range from the clearly fantastical if never saccharine to the strictly Western contemporary, with the weird elements ranging as well from explicit to possibly imagined Touching and strange, with characters beautifully realized Also, I will note I bought it on [...]

    9. GOTHIC READERS BOOK CLUB CHOICE AWARD WINNERIain Rowan is well known to most people for his crime writing, but he s brilliant at the gothic as well His short story collection titled Ice Age is one of the most superb collections of dark fiction since Henry James The stories here all reflect a creeping sense of doom Hence the title The cold chill of the grave is reaching out in every line, every paragraph, and every story Things are wrong, but what Why Rowan takes us down very dark, sinister road [...]

    10. A well written book Gave me goosebumps as I read this In such a simple subtle manner, the dead creep up on you and shake your very existence Iain has a great way with words, weaving engaging stories Each starts off simply and then changes suddenly to shock you there is a lot of scope for the reader s imagination to just jump in and work around what s happening Though all were excellent the first three stories were by far interesting I received this book a part of a LibraryThing giveaway.

    11. There s some truly wonderful stories in this collection Lilies has to be my favorite, but Ice Age was good too There were two shorts that I didn t care for, but taken as a whole, this book was really good Yep, I d recommend this book and author.

    12. Lovely collection of short stories and each one is very different Lovely read for anyone who needs to wait on anything A lovely way to spend an afternoon in the sun.

    13. It was actually a very good collection of short stories It kind of reminds me of Stephen King s style of writing Mr Rowan has lots of potential Kudos
