Lucky us, because Peter Christian Hall is writing a post for the Devil's Accountant. I reviewed Peter's innovative and engrossing live novel American Fever back in September.
Peter's writing on the spread of neo-influenza for the Huffington Post as well as in his novel makes him tailor-made to join in the discussion of all things disastrous, which is of course the theme for the month.
Peter will write about the differences between, or perhaps rather the desire for differences between preventable and unpreventable disasters.
There are two ways to escape suffering it. The first is easy for many: accept the inferno and become such a part of it that you can no longer see it. The second is risky and demands constant vigilance and apprehension: seek and learn to recognize who and what, in the midst of the inferno, are not inferno, then make them endure, give them space."
