It is the age of space exploration, and five scientists travel 80 million light years from home to study the planet of Siberia, the location of Earth's 56th colony. Covered with dense snow and steep mountains, Siberia's poles reach temperatures of -300° F with icy winds of close to 200 mph. After their shuttle crashes, the surviving scientists must walk across hundreds of miles of frozen wasteland to find the terrain basecamp. Between the biting cold, devastating snow storms, and horrific alien creatures, their chances of survival are close to absolute zero. In Siberia 56, Christophe Bec imagines a hostile and fascinating world that harkens to the very best of the science fiction and horror genres.
