[Update] Dan's first book in the John Cleaver Omnibus has been adapted to film and picked up for national distribution! Join us in congratulating Dan!
The Clayton Killer, The John Cleaver Omnibus: Vol 1 contains the first three John Cleaver novels; I Am Not a Serial Killer, Mr. Monster, and I Don’t Want to Kill You. These novels, written by NYT Bestselling Author, and Hugo Award Winner, Dan Wells, introduced readers for the first time to John Wayne Cleaver…
John Cleaver is your typical teenager, living in a small, American town. Of course, he also has all the tendencies and markers of becoming a serial killer. He is obsessed by serial killers, yet doesn’t want to become one, and so he lives by a set of very strict rules to prevent himself from doing anything…bad.
All of this changes when he realizes a killer is in his town, and that this killer isn’t of the “natural” variety. These events are played out in Wells’ debut novel, I Am Not a Serial Killer. Events continue to become darker and darker as readers continue through the series in Mr. Monster, then I Don’t Want to Kill You, as John is confronted with ancient monsters beyond imagining.
I Am Not a Serial Killer is gripping tale of horror and youth that was recently adapted into a movie starring Max Records and Christopher Lloyd.
All editions will have the following in common:
“This dazzling, un-put-downable debut novel proves beyond a doubt that Dan Wells has the gift. His teenage protagonist is as chilling as he is endearing. More John Wayne Cleaver, please.” ―F. Paul Wilson, New York Times bestselling author
“The beauty of the prose, mixed with the depth of characterization, gives the haunting, first person narrative a human touch. Regardless of your age or your genre preferences, you will find this story both profound and enthralling.” ―Brandon Sanderson, New York Times bestselling author
