"...His best stories resemble the work of Joss Whedon: contemporary fantasy in which quirky characters confront the uncanny with deadpan aplomb and an appealing degree of competence... I would be very curious to read a full-length novel from Rogers that provides a fantastic premise and proceeds to fully explore its consequences."
- Quill & Quire
"...the 22 stories in Rogers's debut collection demonstrate the author's talent for finding the terrifying in the seemingly ordinary... This work of classic horror in the style of Shirley Jackson, Richard Matheson, and early Stephen King should attract fans of a more refined kind of horror."
- Library Journal
"...nothing less than a brilliant short story collection... Every single story in this 300-page volume is a stand-out--so much so that it is impossible to choose a favorite. Or even several favorites. They all strongly remain with the reader days after turning the final page."
- Shroud Magazine
"...Rogers offers some real gems. Every House is Haunted
is a harbinger of great things to come."
- San Francisco Book Review
"Ian Rogers' stories are old-fashioned in the very best sense: classic chillers in the spirit of Shirley Jackson and Richard Matheson. Every House Is Haunted
is full of well-crafted, satisfying twists, a fine companion for any reader of literate horror."
- Andrew Pyper, author of Lost Girls
, The Killing Circle
, and The Guardians
