Benjamin Percy is the author of three novels, The Dead Lands, a post-apocalyptic reimagining of the Lewis and Clark saga (Grand Central/Hachette, 2015), about which Stephen King declared, “You will not come across a finer work of sustained imagination this year. Good God, what a tale. Don’t miss it.“; Red Moon (Grand Central/Hachette, 2013), an IndieNext pick and Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection; and The Wilding (Graywolf Press, 2010), winner of the Society of Midland Authors Award for Fiction.

He also has a craft book, Thrill Me, due out by Graywolf Press in 2016.

His honors include a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, a Whiting Award, the Plimpton Prize, two Pushcart Prizes, and inclusion in Best American Short Stories and Best American Comics. He writes for DC Comics, and his story “Refresh, Refresh” was adapted into a screenplay by filmmaker James Ponsoldt and a graphic novel (First Second Books, 2009) by Eisner-nominated artist Danica Novgorodoff.
