So many emotions right now. For the last ten or so years, I’ve watched a lot of very talented folks try their best to bring the Silo series to life, first on the big screen with Ridley Scott and now on TV with AMC and Apple. You know what I felt the most over those ten years? It wasn’t impatience. It was fear.
Fear that whatever got made would disappoint readers.
I mean, you’re never gonna make everyone happy. But it’s possible to get things wrong, or put out something mediocre or worse, and nobody is super thrilled. And all I ever wanted was to repay the fans with an adaptation that they recognize and love.
Up until two weeks ago, I was still scared. But then early reviews leaked out, and I watched episodes with people who adore the books and people who haven’t read any of it. The consensus has been that this show is great. The reviews from critics are over the moon (95% on RT!). My social feeds are awash with readers and new folks gushing over the show. My heart is so full and happy right now.
I hope you dive in with us, join us in the discussions, and enjoy the ride that’s ahead. Thank you all for the support and kind words. Means the world to me. And if you have any questions, come join my AMA (ask me anything) over on Reddit today at 3pm EST: https://reddit.com/r/iama
