Author information

Chuck Wendig is equal parts novelist, screenwriter, and game designer - A.K.A. an all-around "freelance penmonkey." You can probably find him on the side of a highway holding a sign, "Will Write For Booze." He currently lives in the wilds of Pennsyltucky with wife, dog, and infant heir to the Wendig throne. You can find him dispensing dubious writing advice at his blog, terribleminds.com. Chuck was nominated for the 2013 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer.

Review quote

"Wendig's second novel is a splendidly profane slice of urban fantasy - hard, dark and fast. Slick one-liners and laugh-out-loud descriptions pepper the prose, making "Blackbirds" a black comedy that even the Grim Reaper could smile at."- The Financial Times "Vivid and violent... a sassy, hard-boiled thriller with a paranormal slant"- The Guardian "Wendig's dark and twisty adventure is filled with misfit characters who defy easy stereotypes... despite fate being hell-bent on keeping her down, Miriam's stubborn struggle to change it makes "Blackbirds" take flight" - Elyse Dinh-McCrillis, Shelf Awareness "Visceral and often brutal, this tale vibrates with emotional rawness that helps to paint a bleak, unrelenting picture of life on the edge." - Publishers Weekly "In addition to a cast of well developed yet mentally unstable characters that enhance a fantastically horrifying plot, "Blackbirds" possesses a natural progression that doesn't rely on convenience or contrived circumstances to move the story forward.

A must-read book by an author that is worth watching." - Fantasy Faction "Chuck Wendig has managed to take the best of urban fantasy and crime noir, twist 'em together like barbed wire, and drag you right over the ba
