I live in Louisiana. Right now we are riding out Hurricane Isaac. (while it will cause a large amount of property damage, we have seen much more intense storms.). An interesting facet of hurricanes is that for all intensive purposes, you experience 48 hours of night. In preparation for the storm (booze, generator hook up, foods, clearing your property) I wrestled with which Wilson book I wanted to read. I settled on either Nightworld or Midnight Mass. Both have the desolate, surreal flavor that can accompany a hurricane. I've read Midnight Mass more times than Nightworld, so the latter won out. It's been a trippy ride, and my wife has spent a good bit of time asking for updates in the book, or to describe a monster or event. I don't know why I felt I should share this experience, but I figured some jack fanatics or Wilson aficionados could appreciate it.
