Bruiser Harry Stubbs is hired by a respectable law firm to collect debts and as an odd jobs man. Happy for the opportunity, all Harry wants is to someday become a clerk in the law firm and earn a lifestyle that a washed-up boxer could not normally expect.
Harry is given the task of hunting down anything of value left by polar explorer Ernest Shackleton in an attempt to settle some of the massive debts left by the adventurer after a series of apparently failed expeditions. But, that is just a bluff. What Harry is really sent after is much older, much more valuable and much, much more dangerous.
"The Elder Ice" is a tightly written novella written in the style of HP Lovecraft and is an encouraging preview of the upcoming collection "The Dulwich Horror and Others".
