About Hugh Howey

I wrote WOOL, a top 5 science fiction book on Amazon. Also, I wrote the Molly Fyde saga, in which a girl from the 25th century is repeatedly told she can’t do certain things, only to do them anyway.

In my books, I celebrate overcoming odds and not letting the cruelty of the universe change who you are. Considering that they often take place in the future, they are classified as science fiction, but if you love great stories and memorable characters, you’ll love them. I promise.

One Final Bonus – Hugh Howey Quote 

“He’d only ever seen a gun once, a smaller one on the hip of that old deputy, a gun he’d always figured was more for show.
