Publisher's Summary

Can artificial intelligence write a novel? In 2174, authors are obsolete. With the exception of a few human "author" titles printed in the small basement and back room libraries, all stories are created by the Artificial Intelligence of the Archive. Most believe the "authors" are only brands to lure people into spending their credits on print. One woman believes that one of them, author Hugh Howey, is real and still alive. Her librarian feeds her belief that Hugh Howey is still sailing around the world, uploading his work to the archive. Convinced she has found clues in his stories as to where he now resides, she and her girlfriend sail to an island where she believes Hugh Howey lives.

"... in sinc with the next deep roll."

Any additional comments?

A charming, imaginative story but with sinister undertones. Two women in love sail for an island on which one of them believes Hugh Howey still lives, despite being set well into the future.

The writing is excellent, sensitive with good description and the narration by Patricia Santemasse is clear and pleasant to hear. Although different character voices are differentiated, this is more a reading than a performance and this enhances the power of the story.
A definite recommendation
