Praise for Eric Fisher Stone's Poetry
"Eric Fisher Stone's Animal Joy is a hymn to the wild, both in nature and in ourselves. Stone speaks fluent poetry, his diction rich with the fierce beauty of living things. His calls on us to extend our empathy beyond our mundane blinders and to feel our kinship with the whole cosmos, from the tiniest amoebas to the heavenly spheres."-Zack Rogow, author of Irreverent Litanies and The Number Before Infinity
"His appetite for language that is multi-layered, muscular, often exotic, and always brilliantly metaphorical, is impressive." -B.H. Fairchild
"These poems are ecstatic and incantatory-part creation myth, part instruction manual for living, part cautionary tale-and are full of passion and love."-Deborah Marquart
