Filip picked up his first fantasy novel when he was seven and hasn’t stopped reading since. A critical reader who judges novels on their technical use of language and plot alike, he has a soft spot for literary fiction and tragic, heroic tales.
In his free time, Filip writes fiction, makes gaming reviews on YouTube, and maintains a personal blog. All that when he’s not too busy going through piles of books in as short a time as possible.
Nothing quite like enslaving the dead to show the worst society has to offer.
I’ve taken the exploration of flintlock fantasy to heart over this last year. From exploring Brian McLellan’s original Powder Mage trilogy, to Bulletproof Witches, all the way to Wax and Wayne’s part-Victorian, part Wild West adventures, some of the novels I most enjoyed spending my time with, evoke more than just a sniff of gunpowder as I run my eyes over page after page.
In “The Elder Ice,” the first of the Harry Stubbs novellas, David Hambling delivers an excellent mystery framed in the ever-sinister Cthulhu Mythos. A good deal to enjoy in this 88-page read, and I reckon I’ll get on with it!
