Lucky Storms, a Gathering
Excerpts from My Upcoming Novel
I’ve been excerpting serialized excerpts of my upcoming novel Lucky Storms for paid subscribers. A new excerpt arrives every Tuesday morning.
I’m making the first two chapters available for free to everyone. Click on this link to read them.
Below are links to all the previous chapters of LUCKY STORMS I’ve published in my newsletter for paid subscribers:
Here’s what best-selling author and witch Amanda Yates Garcia says about Lucky Storms. (Amanda’s fabulous newsletter is here.)
“We begin the story of LUCKY STORMS, appropriately, on the edge of an ecological apocalypse. But Rob Brezsny is one of the few writers I know who won’t deliver us into the hands of despair.
“Instead he uses his medicinal and ecstatic love for the world to help us become the kind of people who recognize joy as both a weapon and a cure.
“LUCKY STORMS was written by a shape-shifter. Reading it, you’ll join the protagonists in becoming ivory-billed woodpeckers, Indian rhinoceroses, and rattlesnakes.
“You’ll become a connoisseur of bark beetles, enjoy a brief moment as the breath of Rimbaud. You’ll team up with Medusa, Skeleton Woman, and Harriet Tubman. You’re in for a wild ride.
“But my favorite part about this book? It’s also a love story. The kind we hardly ever get to read about, with lovers who age and only find each other more exhilarating as they go.
“Lovers who see into each other’s inner worlds, and by the powers of their celebratory gaze, collaborate in bringing talismans of compassion back into the outer world where they can work their magic.
“This is the kind of book that makes you believe in love, and that no matter the horrors of history, life is worth living. Lucky Storms proves that not only can dreams come true, they can change the world.”
Here’s what New York Times' bestselling author adrienne maree brown says about my novel:
"With LUCKY STORMS, Rob Brezsny unleashes his wild imagination and his multiple ways of seeing and knowing into a visceral love note. It’s a novel that feels like a song, a set of spells, a tantric dance, and a fierce fight for this earth.
“Brezsny invites us into a way of dreaming that can weave us back into relationship with each other, with all that has lived and all that will live."
