Hugh Howey

Hugh Howey is the author of many tales, long and short, set in diverse environments and genres. But it is his dystopian scifi tale “Wool” that has captured the imaginations of not only of thousands of fans, but also most publishing and media industries in the free world (including Hollywood). It’s all too easy to narrow your focus of an individual when one work commands such attention… and in the case of Hugh, that would be an egregious error. His life experience as well as his persistence and dedication to his craft has given Hugh a unique perspective that distinguishes his writing and the path he’s chosen to pursue it. Lauren Harris (of the Pendragon Variety Podcast) and myself took full advantage of our 20(ish) minutes with Hugh as we explore his insights and strategies on worldbuilding, his own strengths and assets, expanding a novelette into a full series, and so much more! (and you’ll want to come back for Hugh’s Workshop Episode!)

  1. The Peter F Hamilton Naked God series is the stuff, Dave. You’re going to love it.

      The more I hear about it, the more I’m realizing I need to make time for it… thanks, Paul! (How did I NOT hear of this text sooner? Was there some gap in my early geek/genre education?)
