Published: Tor Books - October 4th, 2016

The chills cut through you like daggers of ice in Bracken MacLeod’s Stranded, a brilliant tale of Arctic horror with echoes of John Carpenter’s The Thing and the historical tragedy of the H.M.S. Terror. What starts off as a survival thriller veers into nightmare territory as Noah Cabot, deckhand of the Arctic Promise, watches his crewmates succumb to a bizarre illness after a storm sends the ship into a preternatural fog. Ice locks in the ship as paranoia grips the crew, who soon begin to see things that shall not be revealed. Noah and the strongest of the crew head across the ice after they catch sight of a structure in the distance.
