Octavo, boards. First edition. "In MOTHER OF STORMS (1994), which is his most impressive early novel, he creates a powerful and complex portrait of a near future world wracked by the eponymous self-fueling storm, and on the verge of numerous cusps, ethical and practical. Through virtual reality, sex has become extraordinarily present in everyone's consciousness, and genetic engineering helps point the way to the stars. Meanwhile the storm continues, in a narrative which makes profitable use of both the bestseller disaster mode and of cyberpunk." - John Clute, SFE (online). 1995 Hugo award finalist for best novel.
