9781590210635: A Strong and Sudden Thaw

The Ice fell upon the world nearly a hundred years ago, and if civilization didn't rightly collapse, it surely staggered and fell ill a while. In the small town of Moline, Virginia, folks struggle to survive, relying on hybrid seed sent by the faraway Department of Reintroduction and Agriculture and their own faith in God and hard work. But when a mated pair of dragons starts hunting the countryside, stealing sheep, and attacking children, the townsfolk quickly learn that they don t have the weapons or the skills to fight off such predators.

David Anderson is a farmer's son who has explored the world through books. When he meets the new healer in town, Callan Landers, he doesn't quite know what to make of the strange warmth stealing over him. It's not until he surprises Callan with another man and both men are promptly arrested for sodomy that David finally realizes the truth about his own feelings.

When David and Callan stumble over a secret in a nearby abandoned town, their personal problems fade before government politics and corruption that threaten lives. It seems the dragons aren t the worst dangers facing Moline.

About the Author:

R.W. Day has been writing since she figured out which end of her crayon was 'up.' She's had about a dozen stories published or accepted for publication in magazines, includingDeep Magic, Lenox Avenue, Cabinet des Fees, Book of Dark Wisdom, and in such anthologies as Damned Nation, Blood & Devotion, and Best Gay Love Stories 2006. This is her first published novel.

Review:

This is an excellent novel, however you measure it. It's good science-fiction, it's a good slash/boy's love romance, and a beautiful coming of age story. --Ann Somerville, Uniquely Pleasurable, October 2006

A Strong and Sudden Thaw is a well-told, post-apocalyptic romance with a distinctive narrative voice. Combining a realistic story of small-town struggles, prejudices, and affections against a larger tale of endless winter and hungry dragons, R. W. Day offers readers a heartwarming work of speculative fiction that combines the persecuted love of Brokeback Mountain with the charming romance of Big Eden. --Dru Pagliassotti, The Harrow
