Saint Elmo's Light is a collection of thirteen short stories by J Thomas Brown. The blue-violet light of Saint Elmo's fire, caused by a molecular tearing apart of plasma in the air, is brightest at the end of pointed objects such as ship's masts and lightning rods where the surface is at its highest curvature. The stories are concentrated in the 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.
