Publisher's Summary

Hugh Howey was a boat captain living aboard a 74-foot yacht in the shadow of the Twin Towers on the morning of September 11, 2001.

Imprisoned and put on display in a glass-domed zoo on the planet Tralfamadore, adult film actress Montana Wildhack is left alone with her thoughts and her occasional lover Billy Pilgrim.

Inspired by Kurt Vonnegut’s masterpiece Slaughterhouse Five, Howey uses this short story to weave his own personal Dresden experience with Wildhack’s private hell. In Peace in Amber, he examines the struggle to determine what to control, when to surrender, and how to discern those things we cannot change.

    Story
    "Wow!!"

    This is not just a story. Its a piece of literature, pure, wonderfully written, literature!
    Its a raw, true and fictional, side by side work that examines the human condition. The combination used, really hits deep into the human perspective. This is the type of work that really makes you want to savor each thought stirred by the words. It leaves you with a desire to deeply ponder yourself and humanity.
    Its deep!
    This should also be in every future literature class in every college! Fabulous work!!!!!

    Oh the narration....Splendid! Perfect! Just like the book.

    "I thought I was listening to Kurt"
    Any additional comments?

    I queued up Peace in Amber this morning for a change of pace. Too much science and skepticism can leave you cold. The story began and I could have sworn that some lost Vonnegut work had been found. I only wish the fan-fiction work had been longer. I then googled Howey and found that he is from Charlotte and is a prolific science fiction writer. Frank Kappa confirmed. “So many books, so little time.” If you are a Kurt Vonnegut fan this is must read. If you are an American who remembers 9/11 this will touch you. Bravo, Hugh. Nicely done.

    "Confused...."

    Not sure if I'm missing another book that might have helped me understand . This short story was not what I thought I would be getting.
