Heavy Weather - Tempestuous Tales of Stranger Climes

This addition to the Tales of the Weird series offers stories from the increasingly relevant subject of ecological disaster, and strange climates exploring a slightly peculiar side of the horror genre.

“The sound seemed everywhere; it seemed to emanate from the unleashed forces of the storm itself; its rasping moan was a demoniacal cry, screaming a weird defiance into the teeth of the mighty monsoon.”

Since ancient times literature has been awash with tales of strange weather; accounts of nature’s real destructive power blending into mythology, fantasy and folklore. This new collection gathers the best stories of ecological upset, nightmarish meteorological extremes and inexplicable atmospheric phenomena from the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, when pioneering authors began to weave the otherworldliness of environmental disturbances into supernatural or uncanny experiences.

Watch the Mercury in the Barometer; Dropping far, far too quickly. 

Pull on your oilskin and prepare to do battle with the full fury of the elements.  With stories from Algernon Blackwood, Herman Melville, Mary Shelley, Daphne du Maurier and many more, this foray into severe winters, stifling heats, roiling oceans and piercing gales offers the perfect read on a rainy day – or night.
