Dear members: The other book was chose last night is "Wool" (the Omnibus edition, 1-5, first book in the Silo series) by Hugh Howey, which we'll be discussing on Saturday, January 11, 2014 at 7 p.m. It's considered a likely future sci fi classic, and was originally published in installments online (hence the 1-5, above). According to Amazon.com:
