Signed Books

Remember how disappointing this scene was?

Yeah, Al Capone’s vault was a bust. This weekend, Amber and I are going to try and make it up to you. We’re peeling the padlock off the old Howey storage unit and pawing through the treasures inside. Foreign editions. Original copies of the self-pubbed edition of WOOL. Pages of manuscripts with red ink all over them. High school poetry. Pictures of me with hair down to my waist. My stuffed animals (kidding. I would never put those in storage!)

Any surplus stuff will be up for grabs. I haven’t done signed editions in a while, and this might be the last hurrah for quite some time. What I’m thinking is figuring out what I have, letting you all call dibs, and then maybe order in copies of WOOL to sign for anyone who wants one of those. Or something. Details to be sorted out. Stay tuned.

Wait is it call dibs now or some other time. Italian Dust is what I will try to call dibs on either now or at some point in the future

That would be super fantastic Hugh, calling dibs now. I’ve promoted the Wool series to everyone I know!

Do I get a bump up the queue as a fellow “Amber”? Ha :)

Good luck sorting through all your stuff! Not fun but satisfying I’m sure.

I always liked the Third Shift Pact cover with Solo and his cat, also Half Way Home with the legs is creepy cool, so dibs ;)


I really need (more than the others :-) ) the atomic Wool 1 ! Or everything else you will find while mining!


Will you ship to Canada? I’ve tried to get a signed copy of WOOL twice now, this may be my last chance!

All I’ve wanted since the dawn of time is: 1. the ugly yellow omnibus, and 2. the wool proof set with the individual volumes. Now is that too much to ask?? ;-) Enjoy clearing out – it will feel liberating, I’m sure.

Hugh, that would be awesome! What a great idea. I’d love to get in on this, too. Send me whatever you want, ’cause I like to live on the wild side. ;) Thanks for doing this!

I’m bad about not filling out my collections when I have the opportunity. I’d love a Wool or Silo omnibus. I’d love the ugly editions, but would go for any hardbacks you might have. I also should have gotten the Molly Fyde 2-4 when I got a signed Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue.

Really, I’ll probably pick up something from whatever you list. I’ll be watching the site all weekend.

Absolutely adored Shift if you’ve got any spare copies lying around. That is, of course, if you can bothered to post a copy all the way to Australia.

Love your work and have gotten more than one of my mates into it as well. All the best with the cleaning and sorting

I’d love anything Wool related, either the individual volumes or the first omnibus. Or, really, anything you wanna toss this way. ‘Cuz I’m easy like that.

I will jump on the dibs train. I don’t know if that’s what you intended for this post to be, but here you go! French stuff would be best.

Dibs on any “ugly” early editions or something with red ink all over it! I’m so excited for this!!!!

Dying to get anything autographed that might be available! Been reading the originals since before they hit the big time!

If we are doing Dibs now, I would love a signed copy of the self-published edition of WOOL. I have gotten many people hooked on the series, would love a neat piece to add to the collection. Thanks for giving back, it’s really cool.

I would love copy of any of your books signed. They are all amazimg stories. My two favorites being Half Way Home and Wool (they started the addiction). Or even a copy of Misty for my son :).

I appreciate the connection you have with your readers and fans. Its a rarity.



Seriously?! No one calling dibs on the red inked manuscripts? Me, me, me! That’s more exciting than the actual finished product, to me. To own the beginnings; the raw, imperfect manuscripts. Priceless.

No chance of your pulling a Geraldo on us. You’d need a much larger ego for one.

I’m with Leslie on this and request dibs-affication of a proof or manuscript copy of Wool. The more red ink the better. Then, each time I get one of mine back from an editor/beta reader, I can look at yours and say, “I am not alone on this.”

I would love to replace the original Wool, Shift and Dust signed first editions that my ex took when we split. We had one of the first few hundred copies of Wool back when you were still in Boone. We got it on a hunch because we found your name on some upcoming local writers list and that turned out to be a great decision!

I would love anything from the vault. I just finished the Silo Series and was a wonderful adventure. Who knew one free book (Wool Part 1)would take me on a journey like that? Thank you Hugh!

I’m with Steph, Leslie, and ML – an inked manuscript would be inspirational and I would love – LOVE – to have one. You are a strong, strong man, Hugh Howey, to be able to part with earlier versions of your work.
