Strange Weather is a great book. This book is written by author Joe Hill. You can read the Strange Weather book on our website merchantnavymemorialtrust.org.uk in any convenient format!


Four short novels from the author of THE FIREMAN and HORNS, ranging from creepy horror to powerful explorations of our modern society.One autumnal day in Boulder, Colorado, the clouds open up in a downpour of nails, splinters of bright crystal that tear apart anyone who isn't safely under cover. 'Rain' explores this escalating apocalyptic event, as clouds of nails spread out across the country and the world. Amidst the chaos, a girl studying law enforcement takes it upon herself to resolve a series of almost trivial mysteries . . . apparently harmless puzzles that turn out to have lethal answers.In 'Loaded' a mall security guard heroically stops a mass shooting and becomes a hero to the modern gun movement. Under the hot glare of the spotlights, though, his story begins to unravel, taking his sanity with it... 'Snapshot, 1988' tells the story of an kid in Silicon Valley whofinds himself threatened by The Phoenician, a tattooed thug whopossesses a Polaroid that can steal memories...And in'Aloft' a young man takes to the skies to experience parachuting for thefirst time . . . and winds up a castaway on an impossibly solid cloud, aProspero's island of roiling vapour that seems animated by a mind of its own.


So, although Strange Weather signaled a new commitment by Frey to his career, it missed the charts entirely. (The album concludes with "Part of Me, Part of You," an Eagles -like tune used in the 1991 film Thelma and Louise .)
