#Dust Day! @hughhowey releases Volume 3 in the #Wool Saga! 8/17/2013
Exciting news for all you Woolverse fans out there — Today is the day Hugh Howey (http://www.hughhowey.com) releases his third and final volume (*panic*) of the Wool saga.
Here’s the brief description, for those who are not yet familiar with the Wool stories:
In a ruined and toxic landscape, a community exists in a giant silo underground, hundreds of stories deep. There, men and women live in a society full of regulations they believe are meant to protect them. Sheriff Holston, who has unwaveringly upheld the silo’s rules for years, unexpectedly breaks the greatest taboo of all: He asks to go outside.
His fateful decision unleashes a drastic series of events. An unlikely candidate is appointed to replace him: Juliette, a mechanic with no training in law, whose special knack is fixing machines. Now Juliette is about to be entrusted with fixing her silo, and she will soon learn just how badly her world is broken. The silo is about to confront what its history has only hinted about and its inhabitants have never dared to whisper. Uprising.
If you are absolutely new to Wool, you’ll need to start at the beginning and move your way through. Trust me, it’s worth it. I’ve turned at least 5-6 friends into Woolites, and I’d like to turn you, too.
Start with Wool, keep moving through with Shift, finish up with Dust. Wonder how you’ve survived the past [however many years] without Hugh Howey as a part of your reading list.
