The Frozen Woman

My short story “The Frozen Woman” is now on StarShipSofa as a podcast, along with an interview with me conducted by Tony C. Smith.

The story was first published in Interzone 190 back in 2003. It’s a time travel tale about a journalist, Amy Sullivan, who is summoned to a country house to meet the most famous human being on Earth, Timothy Masters – the Frozen Man. There Masters reveals how he became ‘frozen’, what this entails, and the reason he summoned Amy. It’s a love story as well as a time travel tale – a combination I thinks works well.

I wrote this story back in 2002, though to be honest I have almost no recollection of doing so. All I can recall is that the idea came one day and I wrote it the next – one of those rare, but happy, occurrences for a writer.

“The Frozen Woman” was reprinted in my collection The Angels of Life and Death, Infinity Plus Books, 2012. It also appeared in Greek translation, in the magazine ‘9′ #126.
