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.

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.

The outside world is uninhabitable. To even speak of it is forbidden. Humanity has been reduced to a single silo buried underneath a wasteland of death and despair. 3 sections, 48 floors each, hundreds of feet below the surface. That’s it. The only thing buried deeper, in this apocalyptic landscape,...
E-I-E-I-Oh...you weren't kidding. At some point in history, Old McDonald's farm must have not gone so well, because all he ended up with in the end was a silo. Props to whoever advised him to keep the silo, though, because it sure came in handy [spoiler] when the air got poisoned and the world bec...
