Strange Weather: Four Short Novels
What happens when you are confronted with the unknown, when something suddenly and irrevocably redefines the world as you know it? Does it excite you or paralyze you? Does it fill you with wonder or fill you with fear? The characters in the four short novels collected in Strange Weather will discover the answers to these questions in horrifying fashion, forcing you to wonder how you’d react in their shoes.
Whether it’s the spectre of lost memories in “Snapshot,” the menace of a gun in the wrong hands in “Loaded,” the world you know disappearing under your feet in “Aloft,” or life being torn to shreds before your eyes in “Rain,” you’ll be haunted by these wonderful, mind-bending tales.
What Hill has, that many other authors lack, is patience. He luxuriates in the story, giving you not just the horror, but the before, the during, and the after, creating something far more immersive. Strange Weather is his darkest work thus far, and yet, it might just be his most optimistic as well. That’s the magic of a good horror story: whether you’re terrified or exhilarated, you’re changed by the experience.
