Do you want to be on the cutting edge of the literary world? Do you want to be the one to tell all of your friends about the hottest book, especially if science fiction is your thing? If so then you have to check out The Wool Omnibus by Hugh Howey.
Wool is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.
The first story in the Wool saga was self published and released as a standalone short story in July of 2011. Due to reviewer demand it has become the hottest self-published title in a long time. In the wake of the success of the first short story, Howey wrote and released the rest of the story over the next six months. It is now available in a complete collection called The Wool Omnibus.
“This story is terriffic. I was completely immersed, watching Howey slowly paint a picture of a society gone wrong through the eyes and discovery of some truly compelling characters.” ~ BoingBoing.net
“The old assumptions about indie books no longer hold true, and readers need to be prepared to adjust their expectations accordingly. The Wool Omnibus is a great book and deserves recognition as a full fledged contribution to the science fiction genre.” ~ Wired.com
