Product Details


Wanderers is wonderful—a suspenseful, twisty, satisfying, surprising, thought-provoking epic of a novel. Chuck Wendig has taken his considerable talents to the next level. Dig in.”—Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Run Away

“Chuck Wendig’s latest, Wanderers, is a magnum opus of both storytelling and prose, epic in scope, yet told with an intimacy that hooked me from the first page. It reminded me of a technological version of Stephen King’s The Stand—but dare I say, this is even better: a postapocalyptic horror story that bares the best and worst of humanity in all its rawest forms. Don’t miss this tour de force. It left me awed.”—James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Crucible 

Wanderers is a stunning epic that deftly weaves together a deadly pandemic, ideological violence, and environmental collapse in a way that feels both fantastically mysterious and very frighteningly plausible. Wendig’s tale brims with the irresistible dread of The Stand and prose as sharp and heartbreaking as Station Eleven, but what sets this book apart and will keep you riveted until the end is its deeply compelling cast of characters—courageous, terrified, flawed, but most of all full of hope. Simply put, Wanderers is a masterpiece.”—Peng Shepherd, author of The Book of M

“Wow! Mix Stephen King with a Michael Crichton techno-thriller and you have this heart-pounding page-turner about a mysterious plague that causes people to “sleepwalk” out of their lives on a path to somewhere unknown. The loved ones of the affected follow the group as shepherds, and the CDC has sent researchers to find out what caused the outbreak. I could not put this book down!”—Susan Taylor, of The Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza 

Wanderers is a bold, beautiful book; full of soul, with a fine blend of heart, gut-wrenching twists, and gore, just the way I like it. If you ever wanted to know what America’s soul might look like, here’s its biography.”—Rin Chupeco, author of The Bone Witch

“[Chuck Wendig] is set to make a significant literary statement in 2019 with this Station 11-esque panorama of a post-apocalyptic America.”Entertainment Weekly

“Riveting . . . Chuck Wendig’s Wanderers is a unique look at a potential Armageddon. . . . Wendig’s greatest strength might be his character work, so I’m excited to fall in love (or love-to-hate) with the characters inhabiting this America. . . . Count me in for the novel and any adaptations that might come forth from it.”The Mary Sue

“Brilliant, incisive, inventive, true, and as painful as the punch that pops out a blackened tooth, Wanderers is as much a warning as it is a paean to hope and redemption. With this book, Chuck Wendig proves he’s the next Stephen King. Trust me: You’re not ready for this book.”—Delilah S. Dawson, New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Phasma

“Chuck Wendig’s Wanderers doesn’t just pick up the gauntlet thrown by The Stand, it runs away with it, building a new mythology in its place. This brutally epic story of survival takes humanity to the edge and beyond. An astounding adventure.”—Fran Wilde, Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy finalist and award-winning author of the Bone Universe trilogy
