This is a thread to discuss everything related to The Wool Omnibus by Hugh Howey. A little backstory - in 2011 Howey put up Wool on Amazon Kindle Direct Publish. It was a 50 page novella. I'm not sure exactly how this happened, but it got popular. Like really popular. Go look at this thing's Amazon page (It has over 4,300 five star reviews). So word of mouth spreads and this becomes a self-published monster (I think he later signed a publishing deal for it, but it's still only $5.99 on Amazon, and it's a 5 book omnibus, so basically a buck per book), and he follows it up with 4 more, each increasing in length (Wool 5 is 250 pages), and they are now available in one omnibus edition. EDIT: From Wikipedia: --- A couple of quotes by authors recently discussed in the Books forum: Movie rights are already bought by Fox and supposedly Ridley Scott is interested in making it. ---- This is just the introductory post. Discussion to follow. Please use spoilers and mark them clearly by book number or whatever. Also lets keep open info to a relative minimum. I started this pretty much cold and am having more fun for it.
