Why my ebooks will only be available on the Kindle. January 12 . Just bought the Wool omnibus edition from site. I try to support my local.
That means my downloadd library is never going to disappear. And with the Kindle software, I can read each downloadd book on my PC, laptop, smartphone, or Kindle, all without losing my place between devices. This is the only sane decision for me.
Again, if you are impacted by this and disgruntled, please email me. Thanks for pointing it out! I used to have a Kindle Keyboard and gave it to my Mom. You get coupons and what-not as well, so it often pays to have them.
But I totally get the aesthetic part. My older Kindle puts up pictures of famous authors for a screensaver, and the book geek in me loves that.
Just bought the Wool omnibus edition from site. Hugh Howey's dystopian science fiction series Wool still remains firmly affixed on the top of the best seller lists at site, rating number one in three different categories although some of the individual stories which make up the Omnibus volume reviewed here have since dropped off the list.
If you are interested in knowing a little more about Howey, I will be posting an interview in which we discuss his journey as an independent author. In Part Two of the interview we will also have a spoiler-filled discussion of the Wool series.
However, Wool is a series which deserves a spoiler-free introduction to readers wary of sorting through the piles of dross created by the ongoing ebook revolution. Howey is among a growing list of authors who are making successful careers of publishing without the assistance of agents and traditional publishing houses. The traditional argument has been that if a book couldn't find a publisher it probably wasn't worth reading.
However, just as iTunes changed how consumers found music and the way in which bands made their bread, ebook readers, and in particular the Kindle, are changing the ways in which authors find their readers and make a living. All of this means 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. What would human beings be like if for several hundred years they had been forced to live in a giant container, a refuge from the destruction of the planet?
Would we recognize them? Would they have changed?
Would we understand their concerns and desires? Would we understand their concerns and desires? Our ubiquitous human nature and some of its seemingly unchanging characteristics are major themes in Howey's Wool. Tens of thousands of people are packed into a silo buried in the Earth, protected from the toxic atmosphere which surrounds it.
Yet despite hundreds of years, the occupants still long to explore, to expand their horizons. Howey explores the traditions, mores and laws necessary to protect this remnant of humanity from the creative urges and deep desires which always seek to push beyond the safe confines of the silo into the unknown. Wool argues that the underlying claustrophobia of such living conditions are hardwired into the human being and even hundreds of years cannot breed it out.
His writing style captures this claustrophobia as occupants of what is essentially an over-sized buried skyscraper climb the single stairway which threads its way through the heart of the silo.
Trips up and down the stairway become overnight adventures taking up to a week. There is room underground, but inevitably someone will decide they need to go outside and have a look around. This is a one-way trip from which none have ever returned. In fact the atmosphere outside the silo is so toxic that all those who make the trip out the airlock die within sight of the great view screens which line the top level of the bunker. Howey's strength is in his characters.
They are distinct and yet familiar in their desires.
