Wayward Pines

Wayward Pines is world-building. A fantasy set in a small town. A big idea on an intimate scale filled with real people in an unreal situation. The "residents" of Wayward Pines are the last remaining human beings. They don't know this. It's 2000 years in the future, and they don't know that either. All they know is they woke up in this beautiful, strange town following a car wreck, that they can't leave, and they'll be killed if they try, likely by their neighbors.

The man responsible for preserving Wayward Pines is David Pilcher, and he lives with his crew of 160 inside a mountain near the town. They monitor the residents, make sure they follow the rules, protect them from the world outside, and most importantly, ensure they never learn the truth.

Beyond the high cliff walls and the fence that surrounds the town is a world overrun with what humanity has evolved into: hundreds of millions of the monstrous abbies. Wayward Pines is the last town on earth, filled with people who have no idea how precious and fragile their lives have become.

  5. Choose Your Words with Care: Offensive content is prohibited, including but not limited to racial slurs, excessively graphic or violent material, or excessive use of foul language.
  6. Craft Romance with Intention: Sexual content, including erotica, is permitted, but we don't accept pornography or offensive depictions of graphic sexual acts.
  7. Design a Unique Cover and Pick an Original Title: Your Kindle Worlds story is not permitted to include a title or cover that is the same as or is misleadingly similar to any title or cover in this World's canon.
  8. Stay Within the World's Scope: This World does not include characters, scenes, events, themes, and/or plots that are unique to derivative works (such as movies or television shows) based on Blake Crouch's novels, novellas, and short stories.
  9. Mind the Time: Authors are permitted (and encouraged) to write prequels and stories with timelines that run prior to and parallel to the most recent release in The Wayward Pines canon. No Kindle Worlds stories may extend beyond the timeline of the latest release in The Wayward Pines canon for sale on Amazon written by Blake Crouch.
