Official Self Promotion

Blowing my own horn here, as we must once in a while lest the publishers abandon us: Eternity of Eagles is officially out, I have had my first signing at the Tattered Cover in Denver (thanks, Jeff Lee!), and it has its first Amazon review, by Tom McIntyre. Pictures and excerpt below...



Tom: "An Eternity of Eagles" is a wonderful collage of natural, human, and literary history, hunting, travel, memoir, photos, art, illustrations, quotation, excerpt, what am I leaving out? Rather than a hodgepodge, this is a work with an intense focus, never losing sight of a creature that has been among the ruling passions of Stephen Bodio's life and which for others ranges in definition from imperial symbol to rogue predator and scavenger, with every shade of perception in between, duly noted by Bodio in elegantly crafted detail."

The NYT's Jonathan Rosen, who wrote The Life of the Skies, one of the best books ever on birding: "There is so much brute wisdom, sophisticated science, blood magic, and flat out terrific prose in Stephen Bodio’s writing that he makes me think of Merlin, educating Arthur by turning him into other animals for a while. An Eternity of Eagles is worthy of its great subject, which is not only eagles but the earthbound mortals who marvel at them."

Aw man, didn't know you'd be in town. Maybe next time.

Sorry Chris-- racing visit, organized by the publisher & Reid, and though enormous fun exhausting too. But I will be back soon, with more leisure, and will let you know ahead of time.

And of course there is always NM...

Thanks for the heads up, ordered mine. :)

Ordered! Super excited to read this- could use a bit of Bodio after recently moving to NYC. Hope all is well.

Chris-- tell us about NY!
