Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. Signed by Sterling. Novel of the future with the weather out of control in a world of ecological disaster. An ". inventive ride into the future with a strange group of brilliant outlaws -- part research team, part hacker cult. They call themselves the Storm Troupe and they hack heavy weather. They chase the monster storms that twist erratically across the Southwestern badlands laid to waste by the greenhouse effect. HEAVY WEATHER vividly depicts a world wasted by ecological disaster, fueled by a black market in everything from semi-legal narcotics and privatized currency to human organs, populated by a cast of characters living on the edge of civilization . Equipped with military-surplus 'smart' vehicles, networked laptop computers, and virtual-reality gear, the Storm Troupe is chasing the ultimate storm, an atmospheric trophy of apocalyptic proportions: the F-6 tornado." - publisher's blurb. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1080. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#68555). N° de réf. du libraire 68555
Synopsis : Forty years hence, a ragtag band of computer experts and atmospheric scientists called ""The Storm Troupers"" track a group of massive tornadoes in Texas--a result of the greenhouse effect--in preparation for the worst storm in history.
Critique: Why hack computers when you can hack nature? Sterling's Storm Troupe lives in a post-greenhouse world ravaged by monster storms and finds itself hacking the ultimate storm: the F-6 tornado. No one in the Troupe, not even it's brilliant, driven leader, guesses the real nature of the F-6 or the shadowy forces unleashed in its twisting fury. Not until it is too late...
