Staff Reviews

For thousands of people, the silo is the only home they have ever known. Reaching hundreds of levels beneath the ground, the silo keeps people safe from the harsh world on the surface. To speak of going outside is a crime punishable by death. This speculative novel is an incredible exploration into human connections and interactions when an entire society must live together in harmony, or face the destruction of their entire world. This is a great book for those who enjoy science fiction, apocalypse novels, and in-depth world building.

— From Staff Picks


For suspense-filled, post-apocalyptic thrillers, Wool is more than a self-published ebook phenomenon―it's the new standard in classic science fiction.

In a ruined and toxic future, 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.

A New York Times and USA TODAY bestseller, as well as Kindle Book Review's 2012 Indie Book of the Year, Wool is truly a blockbuster.
