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!
I don't normally write reviews of novellas. There's so much to write about with longer form works that it seems like a waste to do a review over something under a hundred pages. However, sometimes I find myself reading books which I think deserve reviews despite this and lead into larger more interesting categories. One of these books is The Elder Ice by David Hambling, which clocks in at just under a hundred pages. It is the beginning of the Harry Stubbs adventures and that is a series which I think of as some of the best Lovecraft inspired novels currently available.
