I'm convinced TYPHOON RAY doesn't exist. I've been asked about it before and this question probably came from the same person. Bob Vardeman wrote a Nick Carter called NORWEGIAN TYPHOON but told me TYPHOON RAY wasn't his working title for it. I wonder if an editor considered changing the title of Bob's manuscript and maybe even added the alternate title to a list of upcoming books, but then the title didn't get changed after all. Only explanation I can think of.
