I invite any other opinions/recollections of this novel to help corroberate this "review". This book came out when I was in High School so my review may be short. However: In light of recent events I feel this work needs to be made public again. As I recall, the story involves the major Superpowers(of the time) and their secret, covert and ongoing hidden battle being waged using some very complex weather manipulation devices. Today one does not have to stretch one's imagination to see the world view portrayed is both prescient and perhaps accurate. I won't weigh this down with my reasons for thinking this way, I only want to stress that this is a fascinating read - worthy of re-release. -Paul Hermann

This great science fiction story published in the late '70's deserves a second look. The strange weather patterns the world has been experiencing keeps Weather War timely. Interesting and convincing characters Forest, Jenny and Arkady round it out nicely. Well done. Bring it back in hardcover this time!

I read this novel in the early eighties and was spellbound by the plot, the theme, the technical accuracy and the writing. Having read all the Arthur Haley novels, I rate Weather War similar in quality. Also, when I was working at Atari Coin Op Engineering, a game was being developed on just this concept. Well, the game didn't come to fruition, and the book is now out of print. But I recommend a re-release and possibly a feature diasater movie on this same theme.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Published in 1978, the premise is even better today! In the tradition of the movie, "The day after tomorrow" and others, it's a real page turner and a quick read (two evenings). However, the ending is a real disappointment. It ends abruptly, as if the authors were in a hurry to finish the book, or if you believe in conspiracy theories, the powers that be wanted it that way. Nevertheless, do read it if you can find a used copy, and put your own ending on it. It would make a good movie, with alternate endings.
