NO RETURN, Zachary Jernigan's debut, was listed as one of the The AV Club's best books of 2013. The sequel, SHOWER OF STONES, received a Nebula Award nomination in 2015. JEROUN: THE COLLECTED OMNIBUS combined both novels in a definitive edition paperback in 2016.

Jernigan's short fiction has appeared in many markets nationally and internationally. Individual stories have been shortlisted for the Spectrum Award and nominated for the Pushcart Prize.

Currently, Jernigan is at work on a trio of novellas set on Jeroun — each of which continues the author's exploration of violence, religion, sex, and muscular people in weird skintight costumes.

Roadside Picnic by Arkady Strugatsky
"A hard-boiled story with a great conceptual twist on the big Visit. No human will ever figure out what the aliens wanted (if anything), why they came to Earth, why they departed, or what all the stuff they left behind was for. Surely, though, mone..." Read more of this review »

“If souls existed, they resided in flesh.”
Zachary Jernigan, No Return

“Men and women who had worn suits for decades traded punches powerful enough to crush elephant skulls, dodged and deflected attacks too fast for the eye to follow, and died suddenly, often before the crowd registered the killing blow.
Victors and dead men were separated by a blink of the eye.”
Zachary Jernigan, No Return

“Being alone is easier than having a family. When you have a family, you are responsible to each other. It’s easier to navigate the world without that burden.”
Zachary Jernigan, Shower of Stones
