Storm Dunlop is an author and translator, generally working in the fields of astronomy and meteorology.  His first weather book did not carry his first name, because the publisher thought everyone would believe it was a pseudonym (it isn’t).  He has written a couple of dozen books on astronomy and weather at various levels, including childrens’ books, and translated even more full-length books, on a wider range of subjects (including archaeology and physics) together with many minor works, mainly from French and German.  He has also edited and language-edited many other works, including science fiction.  His own books have been translated into 23 different languages.  He is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, the Royal Meteorological Society and a member of the International Astronomical Union.

Wil Tirion never had any education in astronomy. He education was focused on graphic arts and design, although the starry sky and especially star maps have always fascinated him. In the field of astronomy and uranography (mapping the sky), he is what they call autodidact.  In 1983 he decided to quit his job as a graphic artist and designer, and became a full time uranographer.  Since then he has created several star atlases, like the Bright Star Atlas and the Cambridge Star Atlas and has cooperated with other people on larger atlases like Uranometria 2000.0.  He has also created numerous star maps for astronomy books and magazines.  In 1987 he was honoured by receiving the ‘Dr. J. van der Bilt-prize’, a Dutch award for amateur astronomers.  In 1993 this was followed by a second, more international ‘award’, when a minor planet was named after him: (4648) Tirion = 1931 UE.
