The Sky Used to be Blue: a Silo story (Karma)
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, is now available as an ebook, to be followed by a print edition in the spring.
