A horror event months in the making, where Bookseller Ryan has finally arranged an event between her friends, horror writers Clay McLeod Chapman (What Kind of Mother, Ghost Eaters), and Chuck Wendig (Black River Orchard, Wanderers, The Book of Accidents)! It took some serious wheedling to get their tour dates aligned up, and we're so grateful to their enthusiastic publicists moving heaven and earth to make this happen, as these two horror heavyweights, with two new horror novels that made Ryan's skin crawl (in the BEST way) bring us an event blending haunted apples, bottom feasting crabs, and the horrors of parenting and love.

“What Kind of Mother mixes Southern Gothic, a missing child story, and body horror into an entertaining brew sure to inform your nightmares.”—Paul Tremblay, author of The Cabin at the End of the World and A Head Full of Ghosts
A small town is transformed when seven strange trees begin bearing magical apples in this masterpiece of horror from the bestselling author of Wanderers and The Book of Accidents.
“A Gothic-punk graveyard tale about what haunts history and what haunts the human soul. An addicting read that draws you into its descent from the first page.”—Chuck Wendig, New York Times best-selling author of The Book of Accidents
A decadent rock star. A deeply religious radio host. A disgraced scientist. And a teenage girl who may be the world’s last hope. From the mind of Chuck Wendig comes “a magnum opus . . . a story about survival that’s not just about you and me, but all of us, together” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).
“If King had written a sequel to The Stand, it might look something like this monumental epic of a story.”—James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Kingdom of Bones
NATIONAL BESTSELLER • A family returns to their hometown—and to the dark past that haunts them still—in this masterpiece of literary horror by the New York Times bestselling author of Wanderers
