Publisher's Summary

Can artificial intelligence write a novel? In 2174, authors are obsolete. With the exception of a few human "author" titles printed in the small basement and back room libraries, all stories are created by the Artificial Intelligence of the Archive. Most believe the "authors" are only brands to lure people into spending their credits on print. One woman believes that one of them, author Hugh Howey, is real and still alive. Her librarian feeds her belief that Hugh Howey is still sailing around the world, uploading his work to the archive. Convinced she has found clues in his stories as to where he now resides, she and her girlfriend sail to an island where she believes Hugh Howey lives.

    Story
    "A Little Lois Lowry with a Dose of Hugh Howey"

    In a world where stories are written by Artificial Intelligence, paperback books are a high dollar commodity and the modern-day author is a thing of the past, Hugh Howey Lives introduces a very bleak future, void of inspiring literature and stories that allow the imagination to run wild. But there is hope as two women set sail to a mysterious island, thanks to what they believe are clues left behind by Hugh Howey himself. Once they happen upon the island, what they expect to find and what awaits them could very well change their futures.

    Hugh Howey Lives is a very refreshing read and I found putting this book down to be difficult. It's not a very long read but it is certainly worth your time, especially if you love Hugh Howey like most people do. Patricia Santomasso does a wonderful job with the audio; a definite homerun in my book! My hat is off to Daniel Arthur Smith and I look forward to more of his work!

    "Beautiful Storytelling"

    From the touching relationship of two young girls to the fate of literature in a world not too far removed from ours, this novella explores much in its brief duration. The narrator brings to life a vivid world on the precipice, and her characterizations are so evocative you can picture the individuals in your mind's eye. What a treat!
