This is an auction for EXTREME WEATHER EVENTS by Tim Jones.

This is the book on the left in the photograph. TRANSPORTED is in a separate auction.

"Jones, Tim (1959 –) writes literary fiction, science fiction and poetry. He is also the editor of several significant literary anthologies. Jones has a BSc from Otago University, Dunedin and a BA from Victoria University, Wellington. His short fiction and poetry have appeared in magazines and anthologies in New Zealand, the UK, the USA, Australia, Canada and Vietnam. Jones was editor of two anthologies, one of short fiction and another of poetry during the 1990s. The anthologies are What on Earth (1992) and Electroplasm (1993). Jones' first short fiction collection, Extreme Weather Events, was published in 2001. The writing in Extreme Weather Events was described by North and South as taking 'a satiric eye to the future, when the new right is old news and the environment is punch drunk. These vignettes of black humour are the work of an original talent'..."
- from the NZ Book Council's website

"Tim Jones uses his considerable experience in politics and as a pacifist to craft these stories, which show great variety and twists and turns in plot and subject matter. A bit of a science buff, he mixes in some sci fi which is never outrageously intrusive or inappropriate but just seems to sit there, naturally. He certainly has style, and copies nobody - he deserves some outstanding success. Tim Jones was born in England and emigrated to Southland in 1962 and his humour is objective, funny and sometimes black."
- Trevor Reeves, in The Southern Ocean Review
