Hello, I'm Daedalus Howell...
Need a laugh? A bit of a squirm? Some satirical cyberpunk sleuthing? Of course you do. It helps you stay human – and if you're not human, I can help you become one. How? I write sardonic, semi-autobiographical novels that draw on my experiences as a small town reporter – but with more drinking, danger and death. They're semantically-engineered to make you feel better than I do. And I feel just fucking great.
My latest novel, Quantum Deadline, is a "...noirish, sci-fi-lite detective story with a heap of self-parody that's by turns poignant, witty and comic" – thus spake the North Bay Bohemian. I think you need to read it. But you're lazy. Like me. So watch this trailer first...

Reviews & Press
Thanks to pal David Templeton and the Pacific Sun for including me in a Talking Picture column about the film Spotlight and journalism in general
Did an interview with Bruce Robinson of local NPR affiliate KRCB in which I admit that my creative process amounts to drinking a bottle of wine and weeping.
Daedalus Howell's novel Quantum Deadline: The Lumaville Labyrinth is hard to categorize. Let's call it a noirish, sci-fi-lite detective story with a heap of self-parody that's by turns poignant, witty and comic.
