The Stranded

The Stranded Review

In July of 2011, a short story named WOOL was quietly released into the vast wilds of the Kindle Store. I never marketed this novelette; I failed to mention it on my website. What happened next was remarkable: People started reading it, and reviewing it, and talking about it.

There was never any intention to create a series. It wasn't until the demand for "more" became so great that I launched into the next four books, each one growing longer and longer, until I was wrapping up the story line with this novel, a full 60,000 word WOOL 5.

I would like to humbly thank everyone who has come along on this journey with me; it has been the most rewarding experience of my young writing career. Your emails, your reviews, your comments on my website, every ounce of your enthusiasm . . . it has combined to grant me enough satisfaction and confidence to last the rest of my writing days.

For those of you who suffered the wait, I hope you'll find it was worth it. This is WOOL 5. Brace yourselves. And enjoy.

    Highly recommended series for everyone who enjoyed the claustrophobia of Metro 2033, just with much less humour. Howey builds his atmosphere well, although in fifth instalment of series you already kn...

    Fantastic ending to this series of WOOL installments. I had a few quibbles with the ending, which explains the four stars, but really, I enjoyed this book so much for the themes it explored (of allian...
