The nightmare of an endless winter is the least of the problems for Johnny Slaught and his rag tag group of climate chaos refugees. They've been surviving in a frontier town abandoned by a government that has lost control -- but their world is about to be rocked by the greatest menace of all -- human greed. Into the Deep Dark is the second in Brit Griffin's eco-catastrophic adventure series the Wintermen. The north is full of ancient legends of violence, fear and madness that descended on isolated communities in the darkness of winter. For Johnny Slaught and the Wintermen, the legend is knocking at their door, and he has slicked back hair, a sheep-skin coat and a pump action.
Brit Griffin is co-author of We Lived A Life and Then Some: the life and death of a mining town (Between the Lines, 1996), a non-fiction histroical book which made the 2011 CBC Cross Country Check Up Reading List. Brit was publisher of Highgrader Magazine for 10 years, an independent publication focused on rural and resource based communities. She won two American Catholic Press Awards for her writing on family life, and has worked as a freelancer in print, video and radio. She lives in Cobalt, Ont. with her husband Charlie Angus.

"The mystery is how a novel with such a serious theme at its heart manages to be so much fun to read. It's like riding a snowmachine full throttle down a steep hill!"
- Mary Lawson, author of Crow Lake, The Other Side of the Bridge, and Road Ends
"The Wintermen II: Into the Deep Dark" continues the fast-paced saga of the first book and adds a new layer of nail-biting climate angst. "Cli-fi noir" you might call it!
- Dan Bloom, editor, The Cli-Fi Report
