Publisher's Summary

In this novella set in 1924 London, ex-boxer Harry Stubbs is on the trail of a mysterious legacy. A polar explorer has died, leaving huge debts and hints of a priceless find. His informants seem to be talking in riddles, and Harry soon finds he isn't the only one on the trail - and what he's looking for is as lethal as it is valuable. The key to the enigma lies in an ancient Arabian book and it leads to something stranger and more horrifying than Harry could ever imagine.
Harry may not be an educated man, but he has an open mind, the bulldog persistence and fists like pile drivers - useful assets when you're boxing the darkest of shadows.
The story of mystery and horror draws on H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos and is inspired by Ernest Shackleton's incredible real-life adventures.

A Lovecraftian Adventure, minus the cheese

Would you listen to The Elder Ice: A Harry Stubbs Adventure again? Why?

Yes, i absolutely loved this book. It was a great mix of adventure, historical reference and horror.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

the story had a great pace, interesting from start to finish. so many times Lovecraft themed adventure stories are either too b-moviesque or too dull. not this series, it is just right.


What about Brian J. Gill’s performance did you like?

every character had a very distinct voice. I believe he did Arthur best, i pictured Bob Hoskins playing the role, and the voice did not disappoint.


If you could rename The Elder Ice: A Harry Stubbs Adventure, what would you call it?

i wouldn't, that is insulting to the author.


Any additional comments?

this i a great series and a very welcome addition to the mythos.

Great fun!

Fast-paced, laugh out loud humerous, respectful but not imitative of the source material, The Elder Ice: A Harry Stubbs adventure is a treat both in print and on Audible. I will be searching for more books by Hambling and more narrations by Brian J. Gill.
