Ian Kidd about this book: "Ian's Gang II" is the second anthology in the Ian's Gang series, containing stories 6-12 in the Ian's Gang library, "Witch's Brew", "Sideways", "Gang Warfare", "Control Network", "Grip of the Spider" and the two-part "Something Evil". The series is aimed at older teenagers and young adults as well as fans of sci-fi, fantasy, horror and adventure stories in general, and anyone who enjoys or is looking for an ongoing series with continuing characters and developing storylines will enjoy Ian's Gang.
The second anthology is an ideal jumping on point as it begins to expand the scope of the series, with some important and memorable new characters, some shocking events and a turn toward a darker tone in some of the stories, especially the apocalyptic "Grip of the Spider". The series never loses its sense of humour, but the second anthology begins to refine the series format and characters, adds a sprinkle of possible romance and points the way forward to the more serious tone of future adventures.
