ice age

ICE AGE is a collection of eight short stories of the strange and the chilling by award-winning author Iain Rowan. Stories of the dead and the living, and cities at war where it is hard to tell one from the other. Lonely roads and forest paths and wrong turnings. Very wrong turnings. The fiery martyrdom of The New Way, distant voices that call from the sea, and the ice creeping in, ever in.

Stories in this collection have been reprinted in year's best collections and featured in anthologies nominated for Stoker and Shirley Jackson awards.

ICE AGE is available on Amazon (US | UK) for Kindle for Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry, and also on Smashwords for Sony, Stanza, and other e-readers.

It features the stories Lilies, The Call, Through The Window, Driving In Circles, Sighted, The Circular Path, Here Comes The New Way and Ice Age.

If you'd like to read one of the stories to see if you like my writing, you can get Lilies for free from either Amazon (US | UK) or Smashwords.
"Iain Rowan is both a meticulous and a passionate writer, and these stories showcase his ample talent wonderfully well. You owe it to yourself to discover Rowan's fiction if you haven't already had the pleasure." (Jeff Vandermeer, author of Finch, Shriek:An Afterword, City of Saints and Madmen; two-time winner of the World Fantasy Award)

"I loved the nuances and true heartfelt emotion that Iain filled his stories with, and Iain quickly became a must read author for me--everything I read of Iain's had this tragic, and sometimes, horrific beauty filling it, and was guaranteed to be something special."
(Dave Zeltserman, author of Outsourced, and Washington Post best books of year Small Crimes and Pariah)

"A short story writer of the highest calibre."
(Allan Guthrie, author of Top Ten Kindle Bestseller Bye Bye Baby, winner of Theakston's Crime Novel of the Year)
