Storm Damage consists of ten superb examples of the prose jeweler's art. Though unpaginated, each comes impressively close to ten percent of the overall length. Is that important? In a way. It tells us right off that the author has a sense of structure that Franklin Lloyd Wright would have admired. And this sense grows stronger as we proceed through the ten: a witch's brew of genres from sci-fi to revenge/redemption to a mystical thriller about a small child to a rousing ghost story...Ten wildly disparate tales arranged into a perfect whole that leaves us winded and gasping: That's life.
