That'd make around a 2 1/2 meg ebook.

That's what I thought about why it was called "Wool".

But he'll probably finish this whole series before he dies.

Not so sure about Mr. Martin here.

I know. I'm afraid he'll pull a Robert Jordan before he finishes it. (Martin)

... Sounds less likely than DiapDealer's suggestion. Did you happen to read the book whilst standing on your head?

The guys that go out and do the actual cleaning, are able to read the letters on their cleaning suite, as they are upside down.

Did you remember that part of the book?

Just purchased the Shift Omnibus, I really enjoyed Wool.

I am also really enjoying Molly Fyde and will be starting on book 4 as my next book.

I like DiapDealer's suggestion about the title.

In regards to a Molly Fyde omnibus, that would be cool but those books were quite a bit longer than the Wool books. Also, I thought I had read a comment from someone on Hugh's website about a book 5 for Molly. Guess we'll see!

Now that cover is interesting - I've not seen it before. You may be on to something, actually.

I thought the mayor was knitting wool -- there are also the book subtitles that make reference to knitting ("Book 2 - Proper Gauge" "Book 3 - Casting Off" etc). But I just looked at Book 2 and in fact she is knitting cotton, so I was wrong about that.
