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?

    " I love these super-short stories of Howey's. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Addison | 2/13/2014

    " A nice, quick read. Gets you thinking, in a good way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 2/12/2014

    " A jolly good read even if the twist ending isn't a surprise. I like Howey's writing. I think anyone who likes recursion and crises of identity and reality will enjoy it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vonnielee | 1/31/2014

    " Incredible short story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 1/28/2014

    " Not my favorite Howey book but thought provoking nonetheless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J4n3 | 1/17/2014

    " A nice, quick read of about 50 something pages. I liked this story. Makes you ponder if we are real or not. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terry | 1/17/2014

    " Really beautiful story. Short- but great. The length could be seen as an analogy for the story itself....now that I think about it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maryke Snyman | 1/7/2014

    " I enjoyed The Plagiarist. I think that there certainly is much more the author could have explored, but as a fast read, the plot and storytelling was elegant and well constructed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kitty | 12/25/2013

    " This is such a clever easy read. What I like about Hugh Howey, is that his books are unforgetable. I can pick them up at anytime and remember where I have left off, even if it is weeks later. I can't always do that with other books. This story does not disappoint. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 12/20/2013

    " Great Novella, interesting storyline. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joel | 12/8/2013

    " Interesting concept for a book. Contains one of the most literary descriptions of an IM chat I have ever read :-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Haley | 11/5/2013

    " Howey does it again. I hope he never stops writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brendan Praeger | 10/11/2013

    " A short story that will probably stick with me for a long time. I think the concept was interesting, and it definitely didn't need to be any longer than it was. $.99 well spent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chip | 9/25/2013

    " Well written, but sadly predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 9/24/2013

    " The Plagiarist is a lightning-fast, absorbing little read. It's a sci-fi short story good enough to stand against the classics in the genre. I loved it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Louise | 9/9/2013

    " I love short stories which may you think. There was some Inception-level stuff in here, but nothing too brain-bending. I couldn't tell if we were supposed to feel bad for the main character. He didn't really have any great personality traits, so maybe not. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn | 7/24/2013

    " A predictable ending mars an otherwise good piece of sci fi. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 7/5/2013

    " Hugh Howey has been becoming one of my favorite authors and The Plagiarist certainly lived up to that ideal. A quick tale that has left me with delicious shivers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 6/12/2013

    " Very quick read. Nice twist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 L.T. Fawkes | 4/4/2013

    " A college professor gets a little too involved in virtual worlds on his home computer and in the computer lab on campus. Dark. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sammi H | 3/8/2013

    " Short and sweet to the point. It's something that makes you think for a bit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monique | 2/24/2013

    " I've become that teacher. "
