''Wanderers'' is a novel by Chuck Wendig (author of [[Literature/StarWarsTheAftermathTrilogy Star Wars: Aftermath]], [[/Literature/Zer0es Zer0es]], and [[Literature/MiriamBlack the Miriam Black series]]), released in June 2019. The story it tells follows a group of people who, suddenly and inexplicably, begin "sleepwalking" down the roads of the midwestern United States - abnormally so, as they do not wake up and walk for weeks on end, adding more members to the "flock" as they march on. They are joined by family, friends, and a few special extras, who collectively become known as "shepherds", watching over their flock even as a disturbed and wary America fears them.
