Dust, the final installment of author and indie publishing star Hugh Howey's AMAZING "Silo" series, is out today! Hugh is an American author best known for this popular series which began with "Wool," independently published through Amazon.com's Kindle Direct Publishing system. That book became a sudden success in the Fall of 2011, and Hugh explains what happened next:
Originally just a novelette, the demand from Amazon reviewers sent me scurrying to write more tales in this subterranean world. The resulting Omnibus has spent considerable time in the Amazon top 100, has been a #1 Bestseller in Science Fiction on Amazon, and was optioned by Ridley Scott and Steve Zaillian for a potential feature film. The story of its success has been mentioned in Entertainment Weekly, Variety, and Deadline Hollywood among many others. Random House is publishing the hardback version in the UK in January of 2013.

Sadly, I haven't been able to finish the new installment yet — but I can't wait to, as soon as I get some free time. Hugh tells us the video above was shot by a reader, Christopher Stocker.
