A brilliantly inventive novel about three astronauts training for the first-ever mission to Mars, an experience that will push the boundary between real and unreal, test their relationships, and leave each of them—and their families—changed forever.
 
“A transcendent, cross-cultural, and cross planetary journey into the mysteries of space and self. . . . Howrey’s expansive vision left me awestruck.” —Ruth Ozeki

“Howrey's exquisite novel demonstrates that the final frontier may not be space after all.” —J. Ryan Stradal

In an age of space exploration, we search to find ourselves.
 
In four years, aerospace giant Prime Space will put the first humans on Mars. Helen Kane, Yoshihiro Tanaka, and Sergei Kuznetsov must prove they’re the crew for the historic voyage by spending seventeen months in the most realistic simulation ever created. Constantly observed by Prime Space’s team of "Obbers," Helen, Yoshi, and Sergei must appear ever in control. But as their surreal pantomime progresses, each soon realizes that the complications of inner space are no less fraught than those of outer space. The borders between what is real and unreal begin to blur, and each astronaut is forced to confront demons past and present, even as they struggle to navigate their increasingly claustrophobic quarters—and each other. 

Astonishingly imaginative, tenderly comedic, and unerringly wise, The Wanderers explores the differences between those who go and those who stay, telling a story about the desire behind all exploration: the longing for discovery and the great search to understand the human heart.

"The sea, the sea, the sea. It rolled and rolled and called to me. Come in, it said, come in."

Thirteen-year-old Sophie hears the sea calling, promising adventure and a chance for discovery as she sets sail for England with her three uncles and two cousins. Sophie's cousin Cody isn't sure he has the strength to prove himself to the crew and to his father. Through Sophie's and Cody's travel logs, we hear stories of the past and the daily challenges of surviving at sea as The Wanderer sails toward its destination—and its passengers search for their places in the world.

Since its publication in 1963, Sterling Hayden's autobiography, Wanderer, has been surrounded by controversy. The author was at the peak of his earning power as a movie star when he suddenly quit. He walked out on Hollywood, walked out of a shattered marriage, defied the courts, broke as an outlaw, set sail with his four children in the schooner Wanderer--bound for the South Seas. His attempt to escape launched his autobiography. It is the candid, sometimes painfully revealing confession of a man who scrutinized his every self-defeat and self-betrayal in the unblinking light of conscience.

As they look to the stars, what are they missing back home? 'Phenomenal. A transcendent journey into the mysteries of space and self. Howrey's expansive vision left me awestruck' RUTH OZEKI, author of A Tale for the Time Being The best of Helen Kane exists in space. If she doesn't go back up, she'll be consigned to a lesser version of herself on a planet that has also seen better days. Helen is an experienced astronaut with a NASA position and a struggling grown-up daughter who needs her but when, at fifty-three, she is offered a place on the training programme for the first mission to Mars, the most realistic simulation ever, she cannot refuse a last chance to walk among the stars. Her fellow astronauts are Sergei, a gruff Russian whose teenage sons are less mysterious to him than they'd like to think; and Yoshi, who wants to prove himself worthy of the wife he has drifted apart from. The three will be enclosed for months in a tiny craft, while outside their loved ones negotiate everyday life on Earth. How far will the wanderers travel in the pursuit of endeavour, and what will it be like to come home? Station Eleven meets The Martian in this brilliantly inventive and sharply observed novel of ambition, endeavour and family. 'An astounding, insightful, exhilarating ride' HELEN SEDGWICK, author of The Comet Seekers 'A stealthily brilliant novel. A distinct, shimmering vision of who we are ...at once simple, gorgeous and profoundly moving' PETER NICHOLS, author of The Rocks

After obscure author of strange stories, SimonPeterkin, vanishes in bizarre circumstances, a typescript, of a textentitled, The Wanderer, is found in his flat.

The Wanderer is a weird document. On a dying Earth, in the far-flung future, a man,an immortal, types the tale of his aeon-long life as prey, as a huntedman; he tells of his quitting the Himalayas, his sanctuary for thousands of years, to return to his birthplace, London, to write the memoirs;and writes, also, of the night he learned he was cursed with lifewithout cease, an evening in a pub in that city, early in thetwenty-first century, a gathering to tell of eldritch experiencesundergone.

Is The Wanderer a fiction, perhaps Peterkin's last novel, or something far stranger? Perhaps more account than story?

A fiendishly wrought labyrinth of tales within tales, opening out fromthe most intimate horrors into aeons of desolation, wonderfully writtenand devilishly compelling.
-Hal Duncan, author of Vellum and Ink

Achieves an uncanny and unsettling quality, trailing itself spookily across the tender membrane of the reader's imagination.
-Adam Roberts, author of Bête and Jack Glass

Easily one of the best modern horror novels I have read in many, many years.Imagine M.P. Shiel and William Hope Hodgson channeled through MarkSamuels, with frequent scenes of quite nightmarish ghastly horror andcruelty that read like Reggie Oliver doing a novelisation of Cannibal Holocaust. Witty, clever, and utterly, deliciously horrific. I can't begin todescribe how impressed I was with this, and how much I enjoyed it. Justmarvellous.
-John Llewellyn Probert, author of The Nine Deaths of Dr. Valentine and The House that Death Built

The Wanderer is a grimoire, filled with stories about stories, stories withinstories, legends, folktales, histories and foretellings. It's a bookyou'll stay up all night reading - both to find out what happens next,and to forfend the nightmares it will surely inspire.
-Neil D.A. Stewart, author of The Glasgow Coma Scale

A little like wandering through a library assembled by some insane devotee of fantastic atrocities and excesses.
-Robert Maslen, editor of Mervyn Peake: Collected Poems
