Hugh Howey returns to the podcast today to talk about his new book Machine Learning. In this episode we talk about what Hugh’s been up to since his first appearance from South Africa before setting sail a couple of years ago, the importance of short stories and how the craft of writing them differs from longer fiction, what he’s learned from his voyage, what’s new with the film/tv adaptations in the works, and much more.
We recorded this show Monday morning right after each of us had read the tragic news about the massacre shooting in Las Vegas this past Sunday night. The tone of this show is understandably somber.
About Hugh Howey:
Born in 1975, I fell in love with reading and with sailing at a young age. I had two dreams in life: to write a novel and to sail around the world. In 2009, I finally completed my first novel. My seventh published work, WOOL, became an international bestseller and has been translated into nearly 40 languages. My career as a writer has taken me all around the world; I’ve met amazing readers everywhere I go, and I’ve seen some extraordinary places. Now I’m embarking on a journey to complete my second dream, that of sailing around the world. This website is a history of both of those dreams.
