“A flat-out hellride across white wastelands of terror, Zeroland delivers heart-in-your-throat tension and cosmic weirdness of rare quality. Ryan Winters is one to watch.” —Scott R. Jones, author of Shout Kill Revel Repeat and Stonefish

Ten years from now the United States as we know it will cease to exist.

Since the secession of the Southern Fourteen, the Reformed United States has faced its share of crises, from ravaging wildfires to extreme desertification to toxic water supplies. Now, a man has been murdered at a research facility in the Arctic Circle and a deadly alien creature is on the loose.

Inspired by his time working in the Arctic and spurred on by our current political climate, Ryan Winters’ Zeroland follows a group of characters, each with pasts they’d prefer stay buried, doing all they can to survive in a world where life has become defined by environmental devastation. Under the eye of shadowy governmental oversight, the intertwined fates of these people—and perhaps the world—are on the line.

“With Zeroland, Ryan Winters hits that sweet spot between big ideas, excellent character work, and foreboding dread—all when taken together make it real damn hard to put this book down.” —Rob Hart, author of The Warehouse


“A frozen nightmare creates for a chilling experience in Zeroland, a ride with a gripping adventure that’s pulsing with dread and fear that’s hard to put down once you begin. The dystopian future within is as presciently palpable as the arctic environs, and both will have you locked in your seat, clamoring (or whispering in terror) for more.” —Peter Tieryas, author of the Mecha Samurai Empire series
