Saint Elmo's Light

Saint Elmo’s Light is a collection of thirteen short stories by J Thomas Brown released in print January 19th, 2021.

The blue-violet light of St. Elmo’s fire, caused by a molecular tearing apart of electrically charged plasma in the air, is brightest in the area of highest curvature such as at the ends of pointed objects like ship's masts and lightning rods.  The stories are concentrated in this electrically charged area of high curvature where phenomena are more intense.

The smell of rain is in the wind, mixed with the pungent odor of ozone. You are in for a stormy ride through a landscape cast in violet light.

The collection is distributed by Ingram and available in most major chains and independent bookstores.
