Wanderers has landed in paperback, finally (all 800 pages of it) — the tale of mysterious sleepwalkers moving their way through a pandemic-throttled America.

So find whatever narrative taxonomy works for you!Then I slyly but pointedly direct my gaze at Your Local Library. !I’m on my third read of Wanderers while listening to the audiobook, I am a big fan of dystopia and have been since school (I’ve just turned sixty). I’ll also be doing an Instagram Live thing this Friday with Paul Krueger (2pm EST, at the Del Rey IG account), and may also have some other bits and bobs in the works.As to whether or not you can get a signed book from me…Welp, you can check with Doylestown Books, and it’s possible if you buy a copy from them, I can sign it?

Novelist Chuck Wendig talks about his novel "Wanderers," which contains some striking similarities to the current coronavirus pandemic. I dont know why this is compared to The Stand. I can take an obvious ideologically possessed author at times, as long as it's not frequent and the writing is engaging. He has written comics for Dark Circle Comics, Dynamite … But, I do okay in that department, and so I am fortunate enough that people come to my events to hear me talk.

2. Like working and looking after children. A deeply religious radio host. The writing, of course, is flawless. Close. The separate plotlines come together neatly (but not in a contrived way) to provide a satisfying conclusion whilst still leaving a little mystery for the reader to ponder after they’ve finished reading. It’s bloated by the aggressive politicking of the author, so we are preached at incessantly and to the detriment of the story. Two hundred pages in I quit and decided to find an author who knew the difference between a story and a lecture. But the sleepwalking sickness is just the beginning, as terror and violence grip the nation.Wendig says the book has two main story lines: one about the people who protect the flock; and one about what the sleepwalkers' purpose is.

If, of course, you like it (and me) enough to do so.So, once upon a time, the paperback was going to come out in July and I was going to go on a book tour. It's just one of those ways where the book is really different for me than some of my other books. $18.00 . Well-written enough to keep pages turning though; a cautious recommendation. I will happily wait longer for them to be sent to me if I can get one signed. But that's about the only thing I liked, along with the premise.

Plausible characters, great plot which, although not entirely original, makes a solid exploration into the concepts of A.I., pandemics and the end of modern civilisation.
