What is it?
Originally a self-published series of novels Hugh Howey’s Wool saw hardcover release from Simon Schuster last month. In this post-apocalyptic novel readers are introduced to a society of humans living in what seems to be a silo transformed into an underground habitation. One hundred levels deep the people of this silo are focused on living their lives and surviving below ground. In those instances when dissatisfaction, or even optimism about the outside world, occurs the people are given what they want: the chance to go outside; a chance that invariably leads to death.
Two spooky picks for this week! Read on for details…
This is a solid week of genre releases featuring a new Safehold title from David Weber, a new Malazan tie-in from Steven Erikson, a horror/mystery/thriller from debut author Douglas Nicholas, and a debut japanese-themed steampunk from debut author Jay Kristoff.
This is a small release week and I could only scrounge up two titles to really get excited about, both are sequel/series titles.
