NEWS: MACHINE LEARNING: NEW AND COLLECTED STORIES and SAND by Hugh Howey Acquired for John Joseph Adams Books (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)

In my role as editor of John Joseph Adams Books for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, I just acquired two new books by Hugh Howey. Here’s the deal memo that just ran on Publishers Marketplace:

NYT bestseller Hugh Howey’s MACHINE LEARNING: NEW AND COLLECTED STORIES, a short story collection including three stories set in the world of WOOL and two never-before-published tales, plus fifteen additional stories collected together for the first time, for publication in Fall 2017, and print rights to indie-published novel SAND, for publication in Spring 2017, to John Joseph Adams at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, by Kristin Nelson at Nelson Literary Agency (NA).

SAND is a reissue of one of Hugh’s indie-published novels; MACHINE LEARNING is an original, never-before-published book (Hugh’s first such book).
