"Jason Gurley will be a household name one day." – Hugh Howey
Greatfall: The Complete Silo Novel is a dark new story set in the world of Wool, Hugh Howey's post-apocalyptic vision of humanity and its struggle to survive. (This is the collected, complete story, including the individually-published Parts 1-3.)
What happens when a silo goes dark? Maya has been sent to Silo 23 to investigate. Disconnected from the grid, the silo appears to be dead, rotted from the inside. But what Maya finds is a silo that is anything but deceased.
Shut off from the outside world and other silos, Silo 23 has evolved into something unexpected, and something more horrifying than Maya could have anticipated.

Because I missed the world of silos, and had been recently reminded of it while looking for it in the world of Sand, I dug through my to read pile until I found a fan fiction, if that's the right category, recommended by Howey. Greatfall, by Jason Gurley, is set in a silo not visited in Wool or it's sequels, and I was interested to see how the world was maintained by other authors. Until I saw Howey's recommendation I did not realize that other authors were venturing through his universe. I think it's quite interesting that Howey is so willing to open his world to others; it's not something I've seen often. Greatfall takes place in silo twenty three, which has been dark for several hundred years. Silo 1 sends out a scout to determine what has happened to the silo, though why they waited so long is never explained. While they have been cut off, the leaders of silo twenty three have created a religious cult in order to maintain control. A “Great Father” communicates...
Ever since reading Hugh Howey's "Wool" and "Shift," I have been devouring fan fiction set in the Wool universe. "Greatfall" might be the best Silo fanfic I have read so far. The bizzaro world that Gurley creates in Silo 23 is fantastic. The insanity of the silo and of Greatfall casts a new light on the events of Howey's original novel. The characters are complex and I found myself feeling for even the most vile characters by the end of the book. If you enjoyed Howey's books, you've got to check this out.
I've only just discovered Me Gurley, but EVERY story I've read by him I've loved. Stephen King is my favorite author & I've read 98% of his books, but cannot say I've loved everything I've read by him. Jason Gurley finds a way to paint wonderful pictures w/his words, from the beginning of his stories , you feel connected to it. I feel sad when his books come to an end, because like alot of Mr Kings' characters, I feel like I'm losing a friend. I highly recommend "Deep Breath Hold Tight", a collection of short stories by Gurley, it's what made his books be downloaded to my kindle the day I finished that book, & I'm so glad I did! Keep doing what you do, & keep us fans of yours happy readers 😉 It was a wonderful couple days of reading, I didn't want to put it down & made excuses to sneak away from daily chores to read, lol. Thank you, JG, Kelly Groll
