TEMPORARY MONSTERS by Ian Rogers
TEMPORARY MONSTERS is, to my knowledge, the first major foray into Ian Rogers' Black Land mythos, staring paranormal detective Felix Renn.
I'll give it to you plain and simple, because that's just the way I like to do things around here. TEMPORARY MONSTERS kicks ass.
Not only that but I'm jealous of Rogers. Why, you ask?
Because in the infancy of what is sure to be a tremendous writing career, he scribes with the mature finesse of a veteran of the genre. I could only dream to pen such a well crafted story as I fumble through Nanowrimo.
If you are a fan of urban fantasy fare as delivered by Jim Butcher or Simon R. Green, you'll be sure to love what Rogers' has in store. This short novella introduces readers to a world where things that go bump in the night and our own are separated by only the most delicate of veils.
If TEMPORARY MONSTERS is any indication, Ian Rogers is giving notice. A new player has entered the urban fantasy game and he's got some serious writing chops.
TEMPORARY MONSTERS is published by Burning Effigy Press and can be purchased via their website. If you act now you can grab all three of The Black Land chapbooks for only twenty bucks.
Check out Ian's website here as well as The Black Lands website here.
And I heartily recommend you check out the interview he did with Jim Mcleod over at the wonderful Ginger Nuts of Horror blog. It's truly one of the best interviews I've read all year.
