Overview

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?

Editorial Reviews

Drew Boyter
This is a well written, thought provoking gem of a novella. If you have 99 cents and about 45 minutes to spare, this is a great way to spend them. The story has good characters, great pacing and a satisfying ending. Themes include how we interact with technology and what the world will look like as technology continues to influence society. The novella is interesting and entertaining and i highly recommend it.
