    One thought on “Wool Gathering”

    1. As much as I love Hugh Howey’s entire Silo Saga, I have not read much of the fan fiction written in that world. I have read and enjoyed a couple of them. But there are a lot of WOOL fan fiction books, many of them in series form. Since neither my funds nor my time is unlimited, I’ve passed on most of those books in favor of reading other things. I like variety in reading.Considering that, I was interested when I heard that this book would be an anthology of Silo stories by multiple authors. [...]

    2. OKI loved the Hugh Howey Wool series. I think Hugh has done a great service to his 'wooliverse' by encouraging fan fiction. There are some great writers out there that would not have the opportunity otherwise. This anthology includes some of those great writers. I love to see how different minds explore the Silo worlds. You just never know where they are going to take you. It is so much fun. And there is still so much out there to explore. Keep writing guys!

    3. This is a great set of stories by writers who set their tales in the Howard Howey's Wool or Silo universe. I repeat - really good stories, many by young and upcoming writers. I find it kind of amazing that so many authors have found this universe congenial and that Howey has encouraged them. Now if someone would only convince David Brin to make available the universe of the Uplift saga

    4. I love all the books in the WOOL universe. This anthology has some tear jerkers and some bordering on creepy. All fantastic.

    5. It is no secret that I love Wool and the incredible fan fiction that Hugh Howey's book has inspired, it really has added to my enjoyment of the WOOLiverse. Wool really was one of these books that once I read it I really wanted to open it up again and soak it all up but one thing I needed was to know what happened in the other silos.Brought to my attention by WJ Davies, WOOL Gathering is a collection of stories written by authors who have all penned stand alone novels/series in the WOOLiverse, so [...]

    6. I am unable to say which story is my favorite, I liked them all so much.I loved Thomas Robins's "Eight", for showing a twist on alcoholism, WJ Davies's "Lost Water" for being a little creepy. Ann Christy's “The Last Republican" was an awesome ‘in the beginning’ story. And Will Swardstrom's "The Sheriff's Son" a poignant story of adolescence in the silo. I shed a tear or two.All were great. But I really enjoyed the sampling of authors, and appreciated the authors’ notes. I look forward to [...]

    7. I bought this book for 2 reasons. First, I had enjoyed a few of the authors before. Second, I wanted to support the charity. Some stories impressed me more than others because of their edge, passion, characters, or horror. In that order, I congratulate Ann Christy, Logan Thomas Snyder, Carol Davis, and David Adams. Well done.

    8. Several interesting stories I'm not normally an anthology reader unless a story has to do with a larger series I've read. I like all the stories - they were good. But I am just always disappointed when they end so quickly. I always want to know more, which is why I am a huge fan of series and of all this Silo fanfiction! Thanks!

    9. If you're interested in sampling a variety of authors writing in the wool world, this is a great opportunity. I also appreciated that proceeds were benefiting National Novel Writing Month.Basically, I enjoyed the great variety of styles and subjects in these stories. I had already read Ann Christy (multiple times!!). Her story shows us some of the beginning. Thomas Robin's contribution was quick an engaginga drink to remember. WJ Davies says he wanted his submerged series to be dark, lonely and [...]

    10. A number of good and very good stories. All are short. I read all but the one in Present Tense. Nice anthology if you are a WOOL fan!

    11. This book is terrific! If you love the books in the Wool series by Hugh Howey, then you have to read this!

    12. This was a nice addition to the Wool world. I like to read fan fiction and build on the world that Hugh Howey created. That said, I think some of these authors probably need a good editoror at least an honest friend. I'm not saying I know EVERYTHINGbut I'm pretty well read. And there were several words (in various different stories) that I had to look up. And even when i read the definition I thought, "Wow, that was forced." It was as if the author has a Word of the Day subscription (no judgemen [...]

    13. A not-bad collection of stories set in the Wool universe. I always find this sort of collection difficult to rate since the quality can vary from story to story. A few were very good; a few mediocre and a few not that great. So overall, it comes out a wash. I was happy to support the Nanowrimo Young Writer's Find and found it overall a diverting collection, but I can't say any of it will go down in the ages---or match the source material---for me.

    14. My goodness, this was awful. I love Hugh Howey, but I wonder what he was thinking here. These stories vary from pitifully bad to mediocre. Just goes to show that some indie publications probably shouldn't have been published.Having said that, "The Last Republican" was not bad, but the ending was really corny.

    15. This was so wildly uneven I don't even know where to begin. A few stories were truly fantastic and deserve to be in the Wool canon and made me interested in their authors. A few other stories made me realize why these authors are self-publishing through .

    16. Each story stands alonebut makes for an interesting collection. Since the stories are so short, I never came to care for the characters
