Gone-Away World (Paperback)
October 2008 Indie Next List
“Nick Harkaway's first novel, The Gone Away World, is hilarious, wonderful, and surreal. It is a kind of post-apocalypse mercenary troop muckabout with ninjas, monsters, epic kung-fu battles, and a really compelling theme about the utter banality of every step towards becoming truly evil.”
— Lars Townsend, Politics & Prose Books &, Washington, DC
This hilarious, action-packed book takes a look at the apocalypse that combines a touching tale of friendship, a thrilling war story, and an all-out kung-fu-infused mission to save the world.
