We are the House of Zolo, Independent Canadian Publishers. House of Zolo publishes speculative literature with a special interest in short story and poetry.
Our inaugural release is coming in the Fall of 2019 with the launch of Phreak – a new novel by the award winning performance artist and writer, J.E. Solo .
The Fall will also see the launch of the HOZ Journal of Speculative Literature, Volume 1, featuring an International array of short story writers and poets. Announcements coming soon.
In an alternate, near-future world where corrupt government and corporate interest rule the smallest details of Island life, an unusually sensitive child is born. Navigating a landscape of ecological devastation and botched genetic modification experiments, the child’s survival depends upon their heightened senses and the skills they learn at the knee of their life-hacking father. Will it be enough? As they cross the threshold into adulthood, the collapse of Island society draws closer and they must act in order to protect what they love.
A richly detailed and compelling first novel, Solo deftly layers satire and social commentary to create a powerful story of resilience and survival.
