Richard Bachman – The Long Walk    (NEL, Sept. 1989)

Cover: Gerald Grace

Blurb:
In the America of the not-too-distant future, authority wears a uniform and stands above the law.

The nation’s top sports event is a 450-mile marathon walk, a gruelling road race for the fittest young men in the land, a terror trek where a single wrong slip is probably the last.

Victory means fortune and fame. There’s only one winner and there are no losers.

Tomorrow’s world is a place where failure is against the rules.
