"Since the year 1500, no fewer than nine hundred species have become extinct. Are their stories being told?"

- from the Introduction

Innumerable sources have reported upon the scope of present-day extinctions, the degradation of habitats and the tallies of newly vanished animals. In these "brief eulogies", science writer and poet Daniel Hudon gives eloquence to grief, bringing a literary sensibility to bear upon the facts of these tragedies, and lending urgency to the problem of human-induced species loss.

Praise for Daniel Hudon's The Bluffer's Guide to the Cosmos

John L. Murphy: "If you found the smartest guy in the pub and he turned out not to be Stephen Hawking, he might sound like the author of this spirited 85-page whirlwind tour of where—and within which—we live. In a couple of hours, with or without drinks, perhaps the guy's ramblings would sound like these here: witty, fact-laden, trivia-studded, and full of pretty good jokes."
