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

"I loved the intensity of flaws each character possessed. There wasn't a single soul (or nonsoul) in this story who didn't have some gigantic flaws and they seemed ripe for the pickin' and boy does Chuck know how to do it." -Bite My Book "The Blue Blazes" is a fun, fast-paced novel that blends the best of noir, a Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual, and melodrama into something special. -Fantasy Faction "So if you need something dark, gritty, and fun, I recommend The Blue Blazes." -Three Crow Press "Wendig has taken the cast of Goodfellas and dragged them, kicking and screaming into a fantasy reality of New York, opened up the playground and let them run loose" -Wilder's Book Review "punchy dialog, snappy prose, and a gritty narrative voice" -Odd Engine "imaginative, funny, profound, tough, and poetic all at once" -Elf Machines from Hyperspace "In the end, "The Blue Blazes" is a blast, an awesome, smartly written novel that far exceeds the sum of its parts" -Rob Bedford, SFFWorld ..".a heart-stopping ride from beginning to end. I think it is my stand out book of the year..." -Jane, Book Chick City "Rounded off with an emotional finale, The Blue Blazes is a serious contender for book of the year." -Alister, Starburst Magazine "It's a brilliantly imagined world, as ick-inducing as it is, and it's easy to see Mookie's place in it." -Vampire Book Club
