eBook Review: the Plagiarist

Hugh Howey, the author of the Wool series that I love and reviewed a few months ago, is a master of creating interesting realities.

Howey's The Plagiarist is the tale of a college professor who moonlights prospecting virtual worlds for great works of art and literature. The moral quandaries, his love life and general lack of mental health all blend to tell an engrossing tale.

As usual Howey's work is hard to put down. If you enjoyed Wool, be sure to read the Plagiarist.

Hugh Howey's the Plagiarist


  1. Looks interesting.  I have always been intrigued by the Simulation Hypothesis, positing that we may be living in a virtual world.

    My question about this is whether or not our gamer overlords take pleasure in our artwork, literature, movies etc.. and maybe this is the whole point of the simulation! We provide entertainment in the form of our art and not only our antics and  frequent bloody wars and slaughter.

  2. So I’m looking at the cover of this eBook and I thought one of the letters looked familiar. Then I realized it’s because I shot it. It’s the first letter A in the title and you can see my original here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/reallystrangegirl/1152523443/

    While flattered I am rather annoyed, especially since he’s selling the book.  No one contacted me to ask for permission to use it and I have listed it as all rights reserved.

    1.  Dude, the book is called ‘the plagiarist’. What did you think was going to happen?
