From the Inside Flap
Having only ever known the uncivilized wake of nuclear and biological apocalypse, three friends-and their wheelchair-bound hostage-set out on a perilous fool's mission: to cross from one side of the devastated United States to the other, in the desperate, half-believed hope of finding a rumored haven. Spurred by a dark vision and the murder of their parents, rageaholic Derek Cane and his oversized, simple-minded brother Teddy flee the only home they've ever known, a struggling shantytown on the edge of the vast wasteland. Heading ever eastward, they are accompanied by their friend John, an orphan brought up by a fanatical religious order, and Leggy, a crippled old drunk who brags that, in his youth, he once traversed the wasteland as a scavenger.

A Novel by Scott Christian Carr and Andrew Conry MurrayPublicist: John Wayne Communale, email@example.com
Wasteland Blues delves into a post-apocalyptic wasteland, where any semblance of
government has been lost and the world is open, in chaos, but ultimately "free." Three
friends and a reluctant guide undertake a dangerous journey to discover whether a haven
exists on the other side of the country so ravaged by nuclear and biological catastrophe.
Drawing on past apocalyptic works but with fully fleshed and unique characters the authors
explore themes of violence, loyalty and survival. Fans of A Boy and His Dog and The Road
will be interested in this novel.
