The wasteland is a big, bad place. Arm yourself with knowledge, traveler!


Do you know the best routes to avoid trashdogs? What about how to escape from an aggressive corn kitten mauling? Will that wandering merchant have antiseptic for your infected bullet wound?


Don’t risk wandering the broken highways ignorant of what might be waiting around the bend. You’re just as likely to run into highwaymen as you are a friendly scavenger. This compendium has all the info you need to protect yourself during your journey. 


Strict no-tins-back policy in the event that this book doesn’t keep you safe. Maps may be inaccurate. Use at your own risk. Alia Hess is not liable for injury or death resulting from shifty wolfmen, groth’nal attacks, trashdog bites, highwaymen encounters, voodoo moth poisoning, zombification from possessionweed, or Corvin Melonvine threatening you with a knife.


This handbook was made specifically for fans of the Travelers Series as a supplemental art and lore companion book. It includes: maps, illustrations, paintings, character bios, religions, a bestiary, notorious locations and people, recipes, and a paper doll. 


Good luck out there, and don’t forget your eyeblack!

The Travelers Series is a collection of "cozy" post-apocalyptic books by author, Al Hess. Many can be read as standalone stories.
