2015-02 final ZERO WORLD coverPlease help us celebrate with New York Times bestselling author Jason M. Hough whose epic science fiction spy adventure ZERO WORLD releases today!

Publishers Weekly gave it this starred review, “This massive brick of a science fiction thriller smashes The Bourne Identity together with The End of Eternity to create a thrilling action rampage that confirms Hough (the Dire Earth Cycle) as an important new voice in genre fiction.”

And New York Times bestselling author Kevin Hearne gave a review with his own spin, “DO YOU LIKE ACTION I MEAN YEAH WHO DOESN’T THEN BOY HOWDY YOU GOTTA READ THIS…There are science bits! Aliens! An interesting accounting system involving beer! But mostly reading a Jason Hough book is like SKPOW BAM KABLOOIE then whoa wait holy shit dude no augggh BOOM SPLORTCH EEK I can’t find my legs what happened to my legs SPAK THUNK CRUNCH hey wait are they gonna kiss now all riiiiight oh but pardon me is that a Death Zeppelin or KRAKA-CHOOM WHUMP SHLIK oh gods it’s that thing I told you about! RUN! RUN! And then it gets really exciting.”

Published in rapid succession, Jason M. Hough’s first three novels, The Darwin Elevator, The Exodus Towers, and The Plague Forge, earned mountains of praise and comparisons to such authors as James S. A. Corey and John Scalzi. Now Hough returns with a riveting near-future spy thriller that combines the adrenaline of a high-octane James Bond adventure with mind-blowing sci-fi speculations worthy of Christopher Nolan’s Inception.

Technologically enhanced superspy Peter Caswell has been dispatched on a top-secret assignment unlike any he’s ever faced. A spaceship that vanished years ago has been found, along with the bodies of its murdered crew—save one. Peter’s mission is to find the missing crew member, who fled through what appears to be a tear in the fabric of space. Beyond this mysterious doorway lies an even more confounding reality: a world that seems to be Earth’s twin.

Peter discovers that this mirrored world is indeed different from his home, and far more dangerous. Cut off from all support, and with only days to complete his operation, Peter must track his quarry alone on an alien world. But he’s unprepared for what awaits on the planet’s surface, where his skills will be put to the ultimate test—and everything he knows about the universe will be challenged in ways he never could have imagined.
