The Wintermen is a near-future, climate-changed western, with snowmachines riding into town and a showdown in the snow.

Johnny Slaught and his Algonquin buddy Chumboy Commando didn't set out to lead one of the most notorious bands of rebels in recent history. But after the world descended into climate change chaos, the government did some serious triage, forcing wide-scale evacuations and abandoning rural areas to the non-stop snow.

Soon enough, Slaught was forced by circumstance to stand up to the muscle of TALOS Security Corporation, setting in motion a rebellion of average folks fighting to rebuild their lives in the abandoned snow-scape of the northland.

Can a mixture of scrap snowmachines, gasoline, and the military wisdom of Subcommander Marcos be enough to let them rebuild their lives?

Review - 'A taut thriller set in a post-apocalyptic Northern Ontario darkened by permanent winter. Enjoy the chills!' - Hal Niedzviecki, author of Trees On Mars: Our Obsession with the Future; and co-founder Broken Pencil.

Review #2 - 'Brit Griffin's The Wintermen is crazy fun...terrific hard boiled flow to the prose and solid northern elements added to a classic genre. Griffin's got it pitch perfect.' - Tony Burgess, author and screenwriter.
