This is Iain Rowan's website. I grew up in Kent, but now live in the north-east of England, near the sea but not near enough. I have a job, but this website isn't about that.
I write fiction, and this website is about that.
I was shortlisted for the UK Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger novel award a while back. I'm now working on something else. I've had a lot of short stories published, and some of those have won awards and been reprinted in anthologies.
ONE OF US is my crime novel that was shortlisted for the Dagger. It's published by infinityplus in trade paperback (US | UK) and as an ebook (Amazon US | UK), and you can read more about it here.
NOWHERE TO GO is a collection of eleven of my previously published crime stories. It's also published by infinityplus and is available in trade paperback (US | UK) and as an ebook at Amazon (US | UK). It's also published by infinityplus. You can read more about the collection, and what some very kind people have said about my writing and these stories here. One of the stories in Nowhere To Go won the Derringer Award for best short story.
ICE AGE is a collection of eight stories of the strange and the chilling that have been published in various places over the last few years, and it's also available at Amazon (US | UK). Stories in ICE AGE have been reprinted in Year's Best anthologies or were first published in anthologies that ended up being nominated for the Stoker or Shirley Jackson Awards. You can read more about it here.
