About Alan Loewen

Alan Loewen lives with his wife and three sons in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania sharing their home with a Sheltie named Socrates, a rabbit, a demented parrot lovingly dubbed, The Death Chicken," and far too many cats.

You can always find him at CapClave and Anthrocon or else hiding in his office.

"Alan Loewen believes in magic, and I'm not talking about the dark, Gothic stuff that gets spelled with a "k" at the end. I mean he believes in real magic, the kind that makes us look at the world and feel that sense of wonder we had when we were young. You can call it magic, fantasy, or myth, but it's based on the very cornerstone of his work: hope. Alan Loewen is handing out hope, and we're all the better for it if we grab some." - Donald Francis, author of Advent

"Alan Loewen transports his readers into new worlds oddly familiar, yet full of surprises. Loewen is a magician with words. His stories always entertain and, when you least expect, take you by surprise." ~ Lynne Nave, Executive Editor; Stony Run Publishing Company

"Alan Loewen's characters are unique and so are the twists each one takes in these stories. A good read!" ~ Emily Chase, author of Help! My Family's Messed Up!

Wow, just wow! Loewen’s writing transports one to other worlds, worlds intricately woven of word and phrase, and leaves you wanting to explore further. ~ Teresa Ford, editor of Ethereal Tales

"Captures the imagination, then sends it flying ... will sometimes stop you in your tracks, yet other times will cause you to step out to follow the tracks of others through time and realm alike." ~ Cynthia A. Conley, Independent Research & Freelance Writing Services

Certainly an interesting idea and enjoyable to read. Perhaps too short.

I loved it. I do hope that there will be more in this story.
If only such a place were real that we could go there.

I immediately fell in love with this story from the first page. I was reminded of "Many Waters," one of my most favorite L'engle books from my childhood. The characters intrigued me and the writing flowed seamlessly. The plot's suspense and climax were satisfying, while the themes of healing and grace spoke to me. My only criticism? It ended all too fast. I hope My Loewen visits Coventry House again. I'd sure like to pay another visit.

Review by: Eric Hinkle on Aug. 30, 2011 :
'Coventry House' is a book that can be enjoyed on multiple levels. It works for people who enjoy Tim Powers or C.S. Lewis and Tolkien's more mature works. It works for people who enjoy seeing a different take on various mythologies, ranging from Egyptian to Finnish to Medieval European. And it works for people who like anthropomorphics, or who enjoy reading well-told stories of hope and redemption.

If you like any of that, you will love this story.

Review by: boustrophedon on Aug. 09, 2011 :
This story succeeds on two levels: in itself as a ripping good tale, and in the world it creates for the reader's imagination to explore. Even if Mr. Loewen never writes them, all manner of other adventures are possible here.

Coventry House is a toothsome treat for your voracious sensawunda, if you have one.
