Is it a story based in a long cylindrical lifeboat? Hugh Howey's your man!

Anyway, aside from a few minor quibbles, I've enjoyed the first few episodes that were dropped at once, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the season. Hopefully it's not just a pointless puzzlebox?

I'm ambivalent about show only / books included here, but I'm willing to be swayed if there's any preference.

MGM+? As much as I'd love to see this, I'm not adding yet another streamer to my billing.

Show only? Really enjoyed this first episode!

Was Hugh Howey bitten by a spiral staircase as a kid or something?
