Interviews/Guest Posts


“Rogers writes with all his senses, and his characters are deftly developed with an economy of language that is rare these days. . . . Amazing.”
Shroud Magazine

“. . . the author’s facility with character and atmosphere makes for some provocative journeys into the dark and the frankly weird . . . . His best stories resemble the work of Joss Whedon: contemporary fantasy in which quirky characters confront the uncanny with deadpan aplomb and an appealing degree of competence.”
Quill & Quire

“Rogers brings us into moral grey areas, encouraging us to question stories, delve deep into them and interact with them, and also reminds us that every story contains the potential for both danger as well as ecstasy.”
—Speculating Canada

“Ian Rogers’ stories are old-fashioned in the very best sense: classic chillers in the spirit of Shirley Jackson and Richard Matheson. Every House Is Haunted is full of well-crafted, satisfying twists, a fine companion for any reader of literate horror.”
—Andrew Pyper, author of The Damned and The Demonologist

“Wry and stylishly bizarre, Rogers hits the mark dead on . . . I hope he’s on the job for years to come.”
—Laird Barron, author of Occultation

“Rogers has . . . a great dark sense of humor.”
—CSI Librarian
