The free Phoenix Pick ebook for August is The Ice Owl by Carolyn Ives Gilman. This novella was nominated for both the Hugo and the Nebula when it was originally published.
|The Ice Owl|
Set in the same universe as Arkfall (although a totally independent story), The Ice Owl tells a tale capturing that moment when we start to lose our childhood...when we start to realize that our parents and the "grown-ups" are just as flawed as we are...everyone struggling to deal with their own demons.
It is also a story about past crimes and the haunting echo of ghosts long dead, of a life-long quest for redemption and, for some, the final revenge for crimes lost in the stellar dust...
