A Word with Molly and Wool Fans

Ah, my faithful and impatient readers. A word, if I may. I have some disappointing news for you. The next Molly book won’t be out until the end of summer at the very earliest. I know this breaks the heart of my dearest sister and quite a few others, especially since the book has been so close to completion for a few months now, but I’ve had to sort the order of my projects, and poor Molly suffered, as she always does, the worst. Now for the true hailstorm of…

The Perfect Book to Steal

My “other” little short story is free today and tomorrow. THE PLAGIARIST is about a young college English professor who spends his spare time jacked in to artificial worlds where he steals their literature. It was written for a science fiction class I was taking at the time, and the main character is my loving homage to my professor and friend, Adam Griffey (one of the smartest and coolest dudes on the planet). A story about a guy who steals books for a living. Sounds like a perfect excuse to…

The Double-Bounce of Boing Boing

I had a huge break last Friday when Boing Boing reviewed the Wool series. The Omnibus Edition raced up to the top of science fiction (yeah, it hit #1, marching past George R.R.

And then it happened again! A good friend of mine posted on my FB wall that he…

The book nobody wants to read.

That’s right, I’m working on my memoirs. Why? I have no idea. It starts with a “Prelude,” which was the name of the yacht I was working on at the time. This is the first time I’ve set down the details of this particular day. I’m copying and pasting what I just wrote because I’m feeling too sick to motivate myself to come up with any other sort of blog entry for the day.

Molly Fyde and the Darkness Deep

Mr. Howey, I just finished Molly book four and decided I needed to run through a chunk of your website, just to see what’s going on. I didn’t read in depth, just really browsed, but the Darkness Deep thing snagged me hard… more Molly, but so little information on it–none as far as I can tell. Would you mind letting us little folk in on what your plans are concerning Molly books? I’m sure I’m not the only one interested. Thanks, Adam Dear Adam, Did my sister put you up…
