Product Details


“Violent, frightening, textured, and dystopian are words that aptly describe the short-lived world that Barnes has created. Barnes’ writing is beautiful” - Quest For Sleep

“Barnes’s prose is full of surprising figures and flourishes” - Kenyon

“I loved the premise and enjoyed both the story and Barnes’s rich prose.” - Craig DiLouie 

“Thought provoking and utterly engrossing, NOD is a science fiction tale of horror unlike any I have read before.” - Count Gore

“The creepiest book of the year” - Slate

“I could see what the new world of Nod looked like, could easily picture the slow collapse of Vancouver and its people thanks to Barnes’ close attention to detail. At times I could even smell the death and decay it so vividly described.” - Project Fandom

“Debut author Barnes has written a completely original twist on the subject of insomnia. His apocalyptic thriller will appeal to fans of Christopher Galt’s Biblical and other dystopian and sf thrillers as well as readers with an interest in mythology” – Library Journal

“I have never read anything quite like this book. It’s the perfect blend of heady existentialism and dystopian nightmare. The grand scope of the many ideas and themes, including anti-establishment, anti-consumerism, and the very nature of good and evil, is balanced out by fast-paced events that play on a micro-level…Nod is horror born of the unflinching and uncompromising detail that dissects what it means to be human.” - Dread Central

“Nod brings a refreshing perspective to the horror/zombie genre.” - Pop Kernal

“Graphically violent, but gleaming with gems of sardonic prose and clever phrases, this is a book I would read again just for the writing.” - St. Louis Post-Dispatch
