Publisher's Summary

A near-future eco-thriller from the bestselling author of Schismatrix Plus and The Difference Engine.

The Storm Troupers are a group of weather hackers who roam the plains of Texas and Oklahoma, hopped up on adrenaline and technology. Utilizing virtual reality, flying robots, and all-terrain vehicles, they collect data on the extreme storms ravaging an America decimated by climate change. But even their visionary leader can’t predict the danger on the horizon when a volatile new member joins their ranks and faces a trial by fire: a massive tornado unlike any the world has seen before.

“A remarkable and individual sharpness of vision... Sterling hacks the future, and an elegant hack it is.” - Locus

“Lucid and tremendously entertaining. Sterling shows once more his skills in storytelling and technospeak. A cyberpunk winner.” - Kirkus Reviews

“So believable are the speculations that...one becomes convinced that the world must and will develop into what Sterling has predicted.” - Science Fiction Age

“A very exciting coming-of-age story in a wild future America . . . What’s it got? Cyberpunk attitude, genuine humor, nanotechnology, minimal sex but some cool medications and very big weather systems.” - SFReviews.net

“Brilliant... Fascinating... Exciting... A full complement of thrills.” - The New York Review of Science Fiction

good writing, little story

the audiobook production and performance were excellent. and the book is actually really well written in terms of the use of language. but the story is murky and when the big reveal happened, it played sort of flat.

Entertaining and thought provoking.

An exciting tale and early climate crisis awareness. Still relevant twenty plus years later. Good narration.
