ThereÕs no denying it, media culture has ushered in a new era of visibility for gays in America. Yet somehow the gay Latino doesnÕt fit into this sound-bite identity and usually isnÕt included in national media images. Rane Arroyo offers a corrective. Known primarily as a poet and playwright representing the gay Latino community, Arroyo has also been publishing prose throughout his career and now gathers into this book a storm of writing that has been gaining strength, drop by drop, for more than ten years. How to Name a Hurricane collects short stories and other fictions depicting Latino drag queens and leather men, religious sinners and happy atheists, working class heroes and cyberspace vaquerosÑa parade of characters that invites readers to consider whether one is more authentic a gay Latino than another. Whereas actual hurricanes are given names, the gays given voice in this collection must name themselvesÑand these narratives in turn reveal something of the "I" of Hurricane Rane. Whether portraying a family gathering as Brideshead Revisited with a mambo soundtrack, recounting the relationship of transvestite Louie/Lois and her bisexual Superman, or bemoaning "feeling as unsexy as an old bean burrito in a 7-11 microwave," Arroyo tracks the heartbeat of his characters through a shimmering palette of styles. Here are monologues, a story in verse, and other experimental forms appropriate to experimental livesÑall affirming the basic human rights to dignity, equality, love, and even silliness. When the AIDS epidemic first hit, many Latino families destroyed any remembrances of their gay and bisexual sons that might betray their pasts to la familia or el pueblo. ArroyoÕs writings return the ghosts of those sons to the families, bars, dance clubs, and neighborhoods where they belong. By penetrating to the IÕs of narrative hurricanes, these stories honor the survivors of our ongoing cultural storms.

Terror Hits The Fan In the second shocking installment of Ray Garton's six-part Frankenstorm, a natural disaster sets off a deadly chain reaction of fear, panic, paranoia—and uncontrollable rage—in the ultimate fight for survival. . . Frankenstorm With the storm of the century tearing up the northern California coast, internet blogger and conspiracy expert Ivan Renner has other things on his mind—namely, uncovering the mystery behind an abandoned hospital used as a government lab. Joining him on his investigation is military veteran and survivalist Ollie Monk. While Ivan follows leads about missing homeless people to confirm his theory about secret biological experiments, Ollie follows his gut. With his own trained platoon of armed mercenaries, Ollie is prepared to ambush the laboratory just as the storm hits. But when the fateful moment arrives—and the bullets begin to fly—their surprise attack backfires in ways not even they could prepare for. It unleashes the test subjects. It spreads the virus. It seals their fate. . .forever. This time, there's no fighting back. The conspiracy theories are true.

Hurricanes are nature's most destructive storms and they are becoming more powerful as the globe warms. Hurricane Climatology explains how to analyze and model hurricane data to better understand and predict present and future hurricane activity. It uses the open-source and now widely used R software for statistical computing to create a tutorial-style manual for independent study, review, and reference. The text is written around the code that when copied will reproduce the graphs, tables, and maps. The approach is different from other books that use R. It focuses on a single topic and explains how to make use of R to better understand the topic. The book is organized into two parts, the first of which provides material on software, statistics, and data. The second part presents methods and models used in hurricane climate research.

What could have led to that first clandestine sexual tryst between his wife and the least imagined partner, was a mystery that emasculated Craig Lowe, leaving him as sexless as a gutted snowbird. Only able to contend through the numbing of hard liquor leading to an almost continuous thirst during his waking hours. With opportunities for sexual encounters, while the need was present, the physical response was not. Change came through a series of first time circumstances when he met an attractive woman he had know in their childhood. With their fathers employed in a mobile occupation, they changed areas and schools several times, causing a clinging and closeness of a sibling relationship. Shirley was no longer thought of as a gangling, knobby kneed sibling, but an appetizingly attractive woman. Through a relaxed familiarity of having lived and slept together, and skinny dipped in horse troughs as children, although knowing little about each other, they soon regained the closeness of their earlier years, but with the additional wants and need of the adult world. They soon found that each was the missing link in the others life, but when each others past caught up with them, all did not end well.

This is a clear depiction of how devastating a hurricane can be. A hurricane of any magnitude should never be taken lightly. Unfortunately, for New Orleans and the surrounding areas, Hurricane Katrina wasnt taken seriously enough because of the many hurricanes that had previously gone through the city. New Orleans has survived many of them. But this time the city was completely destroyed. This horrific storm claimed more the 1800 lives. Some say unnecessarily. Many families are still separated. Im still displaced myself. Politicians play the blame game but the outcome speaks for itself. Many lessons have been learned. Not just to the ones who run the city but also to many citizens. Are homes or possessions or positions more important than lives? Will more women and children and the elderly and the indigent suffer again, while their men in the family stand by helplessly again? Hopefully not. When did being poor start being a crime? When will just being human be enough! New Orleans is so small compared to other cities you can ride around the whole city about 3 times and still be home before dark. I miss New Orleans so much! There will never be another city like the one we had already. I dont care how new it gets. That wanted to see what it felt like to just be you. They couldnt wait to get in that French Quarter or the Jazz Festival at the Fair Grounds or Mardi Gras time. Oh boy! There was not a lot of need of a car in New Orleans unless you were a contractor or something like that. There were bus stops on almost every corner of the streets all over the city. They ran almost 5 to 10 minutes apart. Even on Sunday. So you could still go to church! Or sometimes we just walked. Where in the world do you know of a place with a church on one corner and a liquor store on the other and then a funeral home or bar room a few feet away. There were a lot of corner grocery stores in case you didnt feel like going all the way to the big stores just get a loaf of bread and some sandwich meat and a cold drink. It was so very unique, I loved it! I loved living there too. The people were so much more personable than anywhere in the world. Why would you buy a car if you didnt really need one or couldnt afford one. Unless you were white or wealthy. Damn near every black person was on low income wages if you were lucky enough to have a job. Other than that you were on welfare and food stamps. The white and wealthy didnt really want to get rid of all the blacks. What would they do without us? Somebody told me that you have to have a certain percentage of poor people living in the city in order to receive government funds. We knew where the money was. We just couldnt get our hands on any of it. Can you guess why? We made the City of New Orleans what it was. There was no way for the citizens without transportation to leave the city. Mandatory or not! This was a very well known fact by everyone in City Hall and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. So why wasnt transportation provided sooner? Yes, I feel that a lot of this tragedy could have been avoided. It still hurts to know that so many people lost their loved ones. Its a terrible feeling to know that you cant even go home to the Lower Ninth Ward because the Mighty, Muddy, Dirty, Nasty Mississippi River was allowed to infest your town with debris and raw sewer matter. We had sense enough to think, that there were still some people in the United States of America, in the year of 2005, with their noses stuck up so far in the air that they couldnt see themselves coming down far enough, just to help fellow human being to SURVIVE! Jesus Help Us All.
