Storm Dunlop

Author, Translator, Editor, Lecturer



As you probably already know if you are viewing this page, I am a British author and translator, working mainly in the physical sciences, such as astronomy, meteorology, and geology. My own books are largely concerned with astronomy and the weather, but my translations (both books and articles) have covered a much wider range: from 'Lake Baikal' to 'Extraterrestrial Intelligence', taking in 'Speech among the Neanderthals' along the way.

Some people have difficulty in believing that ‘Storm’ is my true name – especially because I write about the weather (amongst other things). In fact, ‘Storm’ is a fairly common Scandinavian and German surname, even if not very common as a first name. But there are others. See, for example, this poor soul who had his house swept away:

Recent changes - (2015 November 9):


I have recently been extremely busy with a number of projects. Details of these are shown on a specific page.


No book is ever perfect. Some corrections to a few of my works are shown specifically on the following pages:

Come Rain or Shine

Collins Atlas of the Night Sky (first edition), revised charts for:

        Stock 2 (page 73)

        BN Hydri (page 105)

        NGC 6522 (page 135)




Authors tend to get involved in a range of work, so the following list serves to break mine into maneagable categories:


My work as a writer, including details of
some of my books and articles

Blogs, etc.

Increasingly, I am asked to contribute to various
websites and to publishers’ and other blogs.
Here is a note of some such contributions.


A similar summary of my translation work,
with a partial list of major translations


Some of the editorial and other publishing
projects with which I have been involved


Talks, lectures and evening classes


Other interests

Like everyone else, I have also become involved in other activities, some paid, and some unpaid. Here are a few of my current fields of interest:


Still my first love, although it often has to
cede time to meteorology


Or 'Weather and Climate' if you find the formal
term too forbidding


We can also include palaeontology ('fossils') here
