It was released in hardcover in the UK by Dennis Dobson in 1967, with a paperback edition following from Penguin Books in 1969. Translations have appeared in Dutch, French, German, Hungarian and Italian. The Wanderer was the first novel to win the Hugo Award without previously being published in hardcover or appearing in some form in a genre magazine. The novel deals with a wandering planet that enters the solar system. Its narrative follows multiple disconnected groups of characters to portray the widespread impact of the Wanderer on the entire population of the Earth as well as the varied reactions of different groups as they struggle to cope and survive.
