“I am Howard, and you are Howard…”
High school freshman Howard possesses the ability to control spirits called “Artificial Humans,” which live in the human mind and are capable of limitless destruction. Several years ago, a magical spell banished his friend from the mortal realm, and Howard believes that his former classmate is responsible. Now, Howard wields the violent power of the Artificial Humans to rescue his banished friend.Taking inspiration from Japanese manga and anime, Howard chronicles a teenager’s everyday school life as it gradually turns into a supernatural battlefield. For fans of David J. Spurlock, Yoshiaki Sukeno, and more, this is the first full-length, experimental YA Fantasy/Horror novel in a series from a promising new writer.
“‘Howard’ captures the brutality of youth with bloody, imaginative originality. An impressive entry from a writer to watch.” —Ben Sobieck, bestselling author of Cleansing Eden and The Writer’s Guide to Weapons
