In this collection of short stories, poetry, non-fiction, and images, you will find the range of approaching storms, and the range of emotions involved in such cataclysmic events. ...

Overview

Storms can come out of a clear blue sky, or they can build over a long period. They can take many forms, all terribly destructive: a tornado or hurricane that destroys all your belongings, an abusive spouse who destroys your sense of well-being, or human actions that can devastate an entire society.

In this collection of short stories, poetry, non-fiction, and images, you will find the range of approaching storms, and the range of emotions involved in such cataclysmic events. Within these pages you will find Mother Nature on the warpath in the form of tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, and vengeful plants. You will find storms approaching in the form of an abusive spouse, a fed-up spouse, and the down-trodden. You will find murder and suicide. But, as is always the case after a storm passes, you will also find life beginning anew.

Editorial Reviews

BookPleasures.com - Karen Dahood
The gathering of literary pieces on a single topic introduces 33 fine-tuned imaginations that interpret an impending storm as different things...these are the contributions of writers whose task it is to take us places we haven’t been...Thanks to many small presses like Sleeping Cat, and thousands of talented literary writers, the opportunities for this kind of reading adventure are plentiful; we just don’t often hear about them, therefore don’t think about them. Too bad.

    This was a book that I could not get into. I read a few stories

    This was a book that I could not get into. I read a few stories and I could not get interested. I am also not a big poetry reader and there are some mixed in.
