Nobody remembers how the Causality War started. Really, there’s no-one to remember, and nothing for them to remember if there were; that’s sort of the point. We were time warriors, and we broke time.
I was the one who ended it. Ended the fighting, tidied up the damage as much as I could.
Then I came here, to the end of it all, and gave myself a mission: to never let it happen again.
“This time-looped dramedy is as funny as it is thought-provoking.” Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Playing deft games with time, this wryly funny short novel from the author of Children of Time focuses on a war that nobody remembers fighting and a time warrior determined to prevent history from repeating itself.” Waterstones review

She’s not sure what she survived, exactly, only that They invaded without warning, killed nearly all of humanity, and relentlessly attack everyone who’s left.
All she can do to stay sane, in the blockaded city that’s no longer home, is keep a journal about her struggle. Fifty years later, Eva’s words are found by Emerson, a young anthropologist sent to the ruins to study what happened.
The discovery could shed light on the Invasion, turning the unyielding mystery of the short war into a story of hope and defiance.
“Premee Mohamed writes with a joyous velocity that careens through genre-lines, whipping the reader helplessly after her. One of the most exciting voices I’ve heard in a long time.” – John Hornor Jacobs
“One of the most exciting new voices in speculative fiction.” – Silvia Moreno-Garcia
We’re very excited to be wishing our handsome new reissue of Spec Ops Z by Gavin G. Smith a very happy book birthday! The reissue is a fantastic opportunity for readers to discover, or re-discover, this high-octane world and get to know its Spetznaz squad!
When Vadim Scorlenski and his elite Spetznaz squad are sent to New York at the height of the Cold War, they’re told it’s a ‘training exercise.’ They discover, too late, that the ‘practice’ chemical weapon they’re carrying is all too real. They go to their deaths…
…and awaken to a city overwhelmed by the walking dead, even now spreading across the globe. Somehow holding onto their identities amid the mindless monsters, Scorlenski and his squad of zombie commandos set out to return to Russia.
Someone’s going to pay.
A handsome new re-issue of a high-octane military-SF, as Russian Spetsnaz commandos are turned into zombies in ’80s New York.

“An exceptional talent” – Peter F Hamilton
“Pure, unapologetic, full-throttle, action packed awesomeness… Obviously, the author had too much fun.” — The Bookbeard on Spec Ops Z
