Overview

When a giant cave appears in the Mojave Desert, the public watches in fascination as police expect to resolve a notorious child disappearance and instead make a discovery that forever changes the world. The cave becomes a doorway for prehistoric reptiles known as the the Ziz to infiltrate society and bring their own brand of reform and revival to Washington, D.C. and Hollywood, California. Narcissism is nobility, patriotism is religion, and celebrity culture is spiritualized as the Ziz rise in power and the American public bow low before them.

Only a band of subversive conspirators would dare challenge the utopian dream of the Ziz. So when these rebels are discovered attempting to spawn mutiny within the machine, they must be dealt with harshly, lest the people begin to ask themselves: “What are we doing?”

Told through the eyes of an adulterous wife, an insufferable misogynist, a mentally handicapped man, a sociopath, a schizophrenic, a manic depressive, and more, Nevada's ambitious scale is embellished by its fascinatingly flawed narrators. As bleak as Nevada's satire paints the American herd mentality, the story's redemptive edge is undeniable. Reader's will be provoked, shocked, amused, and emotionally wrecked as they traverse the landscape of a bizarre world bearing startling similarities to their own.
