Product Details


“Chuck Wendig’s Wayward proves that there’s always more story to tell. If King had written a sequel to The Stand, it might look something like this monumental epic of a story. I don’t think I’ll get this book out of my head for a long time—maybe never.”—James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Kingdom of Bones

“As great as Wanderers was, Wayward is better: The best post-apocalyptic fiction combines grim extrapolation, great characters, and hope. Wendig nails it!”—Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Road of Bones

“Chuck Wendig has done it again. Salient, masterful, this is an author at the top of his game.”—Adam Christopher, New York Times bestselling author of Empire State
“IMAX-scale bleeding-edge techno-horror from a writer with a freshly sharpened scalpel.”—Kirkus Reviews

“A true tour de force.”—Erin Morgenstern

“A masterpiece with prose as sharp and heartbreaking as Station Eleven.”—Peng Shepherd

“An inventive, fierce, uncompromising, stay-up-way-past-bedtime masterwork.”—Paul Tremblay

“An American epic for these times.”—Charles Soule

“Epic, electrifying, poignant—Wanderers is a tsunami of a novel.”—Meg Gardiner

“A riveting examination of America—fiction that feels more real than reality itself.”—Scott Sigler

“Beautiful and harrowing—and timely as hell in its depiction of a very real world on the edge of the abyss.”—Richard Kadrey

“If you ever wanted to know what America’s soul might look like, here’s its biography.”—Rin Chupeco

“A brilliant Hollywood-blockbuster of a novel.”—Peter Clines
