Description

Since Odysseus' curious crew first unleashed the bag of winds gifted him by Aeolus, the God of Winds, literature has been awash with tales of bad or strange weather. From the flood myths of Babylon, the Mahabharata and the Bible, to twentieth-century psychological storms, this foray into troubled waters, heat waves, severe winters, hurricanes and hailstones, offers the perfect read on a rainy day -- or night.
Featuring a selection of some of the finest writers in the English language -- Algernon Blackwood, Herman Melville, Robert Louis Stevenson, Edgar Allan Poe and more -- this collection of weird tales will delight and disturb.
