So here's some news: The paperback of Storm World, with a new author afterword and a new Katrina cover, is officially published today. I haven't held a copy in my hands yet, but I know they've shipped from Amazon. You can click here to pick one up online. Meanwhile, we already seen our fifth named storm of the season develop--Edouard, which could strengthen into another Texas landfalling hurricane. I don't like all this action in the Gulf of Mexico--or for that matter, all this early season action period. We've had 8 Category 5 hurricanes in the Atlantic in the past five years. The way things are shaping up this year, I wouldn't be surprised to see that number go to 9 or 10 over the last six.
