Aufbruch in die Zukunft Wie viel Zukunft steckt eigentlich in unserer Gegenwart? Dass eine Raumsonde einmal ein Foto der Erde umrahmt von den Ringen des Saturn schießen wird, das war vor Jahren noch Science Fiction – und heute ist es Realität. Kein anderes Genre hat die Grenzen unserer Vorstellungskraft so erweitert wie dieses. Im…
Karma lives in a Silo deep beneath the earth. She isn't sure of much else… only that the wallscreen shows an outside view that is barren and swirling with toxic clouds. Most of the other residents seem content. Except for the ones who jump to their deaths from the hundred-level spiral staircase. And the ones who are pushed.
After the doctor prescribes a special medicine and tells her to avoid tap water, Karma begins to remember a very different world. Despite the fog in her mind, she is convinced that something came before. Such memories are dangerous to talk about, or even to think about.
She must figure out who can be trusted. The doctor… her husband… or no one at all.
This is a novella based on Hugh Howey's WOOL books, the first of five best-selling ebooks in the Karma series.
Karma of the Silo: The Collection, which includes all of the episodes in the Karma series, will be available in early 2014 ebook, to be followed by a print edition in the spring.
Praise for Patrice Fitzgerald and the Karma series
Fitzgerald has created another masterpiece here with Cleaning Up. It’s as good, if not better than, The Sky Used to be Blue. She has such an immediate style of writing which grips you from the start and takes you on a wild journey through the desperate lives of those living in the Silo.
W.J. Davies, author of The Runner and The Diver
A definite PLUS to the Wooliverse, and a must read if you want to be well-versed in all things WOOL!
Michael Bunker, author of Pennsylvania, The Silo Archipelago, and WICK
I think I’m in love with Karma. I was curious about her life when Hugh Howey mentioned her in SHIFT. I highly recommend, not just this book, but this whole series! Read them all. You won’t regret it… I can’t wait for the next/ last book!
Hanna Elizabeth, author of Visions of Wool
Fitzgerald’s characters come alive and threaten to leap off the page, they are so engaging.
Jerilyn Dufresne, author of Who Killed My Boss? Any Meat in that Soup? and the Sam Darling Mysteries
The Sky Used to be Blue manages the difficult feat of placing itself within the existing narrative, just like a missing piece of the great puzzle, and not just a parallel story or spinoff. It is well-written, gripping and filled with suspense. All the ingredients necessary are here: good writing, action and unexpected twists, characters you care about, and a deeper meaning.
