Publisher's summary

Adam Griffey is living two lives. By day, he teaches literature. At night, he steals it. Adam is a plagiarist, an expert reader with an eye for great works. He prowls simulated worlds perusing virtual texts, looking for the next big thing. And when he finds it, he memorizes it page by page, line by line, word for word. And then he brings it back to his world, the real world, and he sells it. But what happens when these virtual worlds begin to seem more real than his own? What happens when the people within them mean more to him than flesh and blood? What happens when a living thing falls in love with someone who does not actually exist?

Good way to blow an hour

Intriguing story line but seem familiar and fairly predictable. Nonetheless it was very entertaining and kept me want to hear what happened next.

Neat.

This story felt like it could have been a Richard Matheson piece. I enjoyed it.
