An Icelandic volcano was not on the line

I have to admit, when amandapillar and I were hashing out the end of the world backstory for our award winning Grants Pass anthology [Amazon | Kindle | Morrigan Books], we never, ever thought to discuss Iceland's active volcano blowing its top and causing all the havoc it is causing now. Part of me wishes we had.

Heh. Trust me, you don't.

It feels weird to have accidentally accurately predicted a disaster. If you have access to the Vampire: The Requiem book City of the Damned: New Orleans, take a look at the sidebar detailing what might happen to the city in a hurricane--and then compare it to what actually happened during Katrina.

Yeah, I wrote that sidebar based on research, so I shouldn't be surprised it proved mostly accurate--but still, after the storm, I spent a little while feeling really conflicted about having written that. :-}
