Cover for Zer0es by Chuck Wendig. A red human face spelled out in code of ones and zeroes on a black background.A group of co-opted hackers discovers a secret government experiment gone terribly wrong.

Prolific sci-fi novelist and games enthusiast Wendig (Under the Empyrean Sky, 2013, etc.) whips up a Matrix-y bit of old-school cyberpunk updated to meet the frightening technology of the modern age. This is an ambitious, bleeding-edge piece of speculative fiction that combines hacker lore, wet-wired horror, and contemporary paranoia in a propulsive adventure that’s bound to keep readers on their toes.

An action-packed yet cerebral thriller that lives in that murky nexus between today and the future.
