Yes, we are perhaps disturbingly fascinated by geographical and/or meteorological disasters. Or, to give ourselves the benefit of the doubt, maybe we just like to be very aware and forewarned of all nefarious possibilities.

In any case, a new book called "Run the Storm" is just out and should push all those disaster-story buttons in the style of "Into Thin Air," "The Perfect Storm" and "How Adam Sandler Was Able to Get 'Little Nicky' Made."

Just kidding about Sandler.

"Run the Storm" details the baffling and eerie story of the U.S.S. El Faro, a huge American cargo ship that disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle in 2015 during Hurricane Joaquin. With a veteran crew of 33, and equipped with top of the line satellite-linked navigational and weather-forecasting equipment, the El Faro sunk so quickly that no one onboard could even radio a Mayday.

Veteran author George Michelsen Foy brings this all to life and answers the big questions in the vividly-written "Run the Storm" and will discuss the book and sign copies Wednesday at Bank Square Books in Mystic.

George Michelsen Foy, 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Bank Square Books, 53 West main St., Mystic; free, copies available for purchase; (860) 536-3795.
