The Wool Omnibus by Hugh Howey

The Wool Omnibus

The Wool Omnibus collects the five Wool stories into one great book. The book is a dystopia, science fiction, thriller. It succeeds as all three. The story is compelling. The characters are interesting, even the minor characters. The strength of the book are its characters, there are science fiction elements to the story but they simply provide a backdrop to the people populating this tightly knit world.
The book was hard to put down, and very easy to pick up again. Odd title, it either refers to the wood pads that are used to clean the sensors, or the wool pulled over everyone’s eyes.
I highly recommend this book to fans of Thrillers or the golden age of Science Fiction. This book was self-published by Howey. It bodes well for the future of e-publishing and we may be witnessing a new golden age of Science Fiction.

Author’s Note

This Omnibus Edition collects the five Wool books into a single volume. The first Wool story was released as a standalone short in July of 2011. Due to reviewer demand, the rest of the story was released over the next six months. My thanks go out to those reviewers who clamored for more. Without you, none of this would exist. Your demand created this as much as I did. This 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.
