Hugh Howey’s Wool Series Gets Book Trailer Treatment

Random House UK has released a book trailer for the Wool series by Hugh Howey, a formerly self-published science fiction series set in a dystopian future. We’ve embedded the trailer above–what do you think?

Director Ridley Scott and producer Steve Zaillian acquired the film rights to Wool earlier this year–. You can read an early draft of Wool at this link. The former yacht captain published Wool in July 2011, and has since written four more books in the series.

If you are already a fan of the books, Howey will give away proof copies of the novels. Here’s more about the giveaway: “Five individual books. WOOL spelled across the spine. A wrapper. A new chapter nobody has ever read before (chapter 13 in book 2). All this will be yours; it’ll be free; and I’ll even sign each of the five books before bubble-wrapping them and shipping them to your home.”
