for "the most thought-provoking books." It is available at Amazon.com or BN.com. The Kindle price is $4.99.
Climate change science and prophecy explored in poetry are themes in my new book. Many thanks to The Yale Center for Environmental Communication's Climate Connections for distributing an interview about my book throughout the U.S. via a syndicate of more than 340 radio stations and online via podcast and internet radio.
I'm grateful to Dr. Michael Potts, University of South Australia, for his review of my book.
I also appreciate cover art from English artist Guy Denning, and endorsements from John Shoptaw, John Keeble, Daniela Gioseffi, Anne Elvey, Simmons B. Buntin,
Gail Entrekin, Michael Spring, Thomas Rain Crowe, Teresa Mei Chuc, Senior Research Scientist at IPAC Caltech Yun Wang, Prartho Sereno, Eric Magrane, and Daniel Hudon.
Thanks to ASLE, The Oregonian, San Diego Reader, Amsterdam Quarterly, Split Rock Review in Minnesota, and POETRY MAGAZINE's Reading List: July/August 2017 (Part II) for promoting the book (from Craig Santos Perez).
New York University and City College of San Diego sent notices they will be using my book in their Nature Writing classes. Maybe a generous donor will send my book to all professors/teachers receiving the bogus mailing from The Heartland Institute (Why Scientists Disagree about Global Warming) so students can explore head/heart poetry informed by real science and real scientists.
The following libraries added my book or gave notice they will add it: UC San Diego Library, University of Oregon Knight Library, Washington State University (Vancouver Campus Library), University of Arizona Libraries, University at Buffalo Libraries in New York, Los Angeles Public Library, University of Wisconsin - Madison General Library, Portland State University Branford P. Millar Library, Linfield College Library, Du Bois Library at UMass Amherst, Eastern Washington University JFK Library, University of Indianapolis Krannert Memorial Library, Library of Congress, Sno-Isle Regional Library System, and Newport Public Library (Oregon). If you like my book, please ask your local library to order it.
