Hugh Howey Posts Excerpt from Second Shift: Order
Those of you anxiously waiting for another Wool story can now read a rough draft excerpt from Second Shift: Order (aka Wool 7) on Hugh’s website. He says it’s maybe 3-4 weeks away from being available for purchase on Amazon. This book focuses on the events in Silo 18 during the Great Uprising.
For new readers, the first five Wool stories can be purchased together in Wool: Omnibus and Wool 6 is titled First Shift: Legacy.
Here’s a bit of a teaser from his excerpt:
Deathdays were birthdays. That’s what they said, anyway, those who were left behind. They said this to ease their pain. An old man dies and a lottery is won. Children weep while hopeful parents cry tears of joy. Deathdays were birthdays, and no one knew this better than Mission Jones.
It was the day before his seventeenth. Tomorrow, he would grow a year older. It would also mark seventeen years since his mother died. The cycle of life was everywhere—it wrapped around all things like the great spiral staircase—but nowhere else was it more evident, nowhere else could it be seen so clearly that a life given was one taken away. And so Mission approached his birthday with no joy, with a heavy load on his young back, thinking on death and celebrating nothing.

Hugh Howey Makes Wool 1 “Free Forever”
In celebration of Wool 1′s one taking off one year ago this month, author Hugh Howey has announced that the first short story, the one that started it all, is now free on the Amazon Kindle and iTunes and will remain free forever.
It’s been funny being a fan, since I’m just one out of many, yet reading comments from others here and elsewhere on the Internet, I can tell that I feel the same kind of affection toward the book and its author as many others. We all want him to do well so badly and it’s been truly amazing watching him achieve new heights over the last six months since I first discovered Wool on Amazon.
Now that Wool 1 is free online, we can all push it on friends and family even harder! So get cracking and apply pressure to everyone you know and get them to read Wool.
