New Beginnings

The Broken Dream Cover

Lugar Común Editorial, via its speculative fiction imprint Ojo de Vidrio, has published new versions of Harbinger and The Broken Dream.

Being an indie writer was fun and it certainly brought me flexibility in terms of bringing my novels to readers, I do not have the expertise necessary to market  the books and myself. These new versions bring greater depth to the Northern Fire saga and present the reader with new material not available in the first edition of Harbinger. 

They are currently available on Amazon or via this website.


Reviews of
Harbinger & The Broken Dream

“Mr. McKinley's writing style is solid and detailed, yet pleasurable to read. He has concocted a mythopoeic story of the first rank and one that will have you highly anticipating Book Two of Northern Fire: The Winter Wars.

“I read a previous novel by Ian and was hooked. I wanted to read more of his work and it led me to Harbinger which I truly enjoyed as much as his earlier book. I am looking forward to his next one and will be first in line to pick it up.

I have joined forces with a talented artist, Meunier, to recount a fun tale about fantasy football via weekly episodes. Please note that the world of Up and Under is not/not at all linked to the world of The Gallows Gem of Prallyn or Northern Fire. Indeed, it's a lot less serious and a lot more fun.

You can find a brief overview of the tale on the dedicated Up and Under page on this website, or, you can click here to check it out: www.upandundertale.com
