When the end of the world comes,

Do you want to be the first to go?

Or the last to survive?

They took the job to escape the world
They didn't expect the world to end.

Kasker Rampart: a derelict refinery platform moored in the Arctic Ocean. A skeleton crew of fifteen fight boredom and despair as they wait for a relief ship to take them home.

But the world beyond their frozen wasteland has gone to hell. Cities lie ravaged by a global pandemic. One by one TV channels die, replaced by silent wavebands.

The Rampart crew are marooned. They must survive the long Arctic winter, then make their way home alone. They battle starvation and hypothermia, unaware that the deadly contagion that has devastated the world is heading their way...

Praise for Outpost

  • It had me on the edge of my seat from page one. - Stephen Leather

  • An original and pacy debut - Daily Mail

  • What many people, including me, are raving about right now is Adam Baker's OUTPOST. . . a stunning debut novel . . . you will want to be one of the first people to experience it. - Books Monthly

  • While ramping up the tension and confusion, Adam Baker also ramps up the action and despite the limited canvas of the Arctic landscape, manages to devise an impressive variety of situations for the characters - The British Fantasy Society

  • It's the relentless pace, merging SF and horror elements, that makes Outpost such a compelling end-of-the-world story - Sunday Canberra Times

  • Outpost manages to satisfy with its mix of well drawn characters and action to deliver an interesting take on an overused genre - British Fantasy Society Journal

  • OUTPOST is a great, fast read. Baker presents a truly nightmarish scenario (on many levels) which twists and turns like you wouldn't believe. Considering the isolation and inaccessibility of the refinery location, he manages to spin the tale off in several unexpected directions whilst still maintaining an air of claustrophobic hopelessness. I really enjoyed the book...

  • ...OUTPOST is an excellent book which I thoroughly recommend. - David Moody, author of Autumn

  • It had me on the edge of my seat from page one. - Stephen Leather
