What's happening



* Aesthetics for the Pyrocene - a meditation for Aeon/Psyche.

* Wild Visions. Wilderness as Image and Idea - out at last, thanks to Ben's patient tenacity and Mark's network of landscape photographers.

* Pyrocene Park. Yosemite as a microcosm of an Earth moving from an ice age to a fire age (Univ. Arizona Press, May 2023). See link on sidebar to left for special coupon.

*  The Pyrocene as framed by the views outside my study windows.

* A brief commentary on how the Big Blowback followed the Big Blowup.




The Pyrocene is out in paperback and headed to translations. That's the Earth's story.  For a cameo that ponders how to deal with a more fire-informed world, Pyrocene Park will be published in May, 2023.



 * Five Suns: a Fire History of Mexico, a project that I have long had in mind. The manuscript is now under review for publication.

  * Vidas en fuego. I'm facilitating a collection of autobiographies from six major figures in Mexican fire research and management. The Universidad Autonoma de Chapingo and Colegio de Postgraduados will co-publish it in 2022.



OTHERWISE, I fuss over our urban Farm at the End of the Road, where I wrangle sheep, chickens, and citrus, and follow Voltaire's admonition to tend my garden.

Scenes from two public lectures. (l) Stewart Brand and I fielding questions after my talk for the Long Now Foundation. (r) My 2015 TED Talk.


The TLS suite, complete.  The color commentary to accompany the narrative in Between Two Fires.  My gratitude to the USFS, USDI, and JFSP for funding, and to the University of Arizona Press for staying with the project - a big commitment all around.
