Another reviewer has nice things to say about the paperback version of Selected Verse – Heroes and Wonders, though this time from a much more down-to-earth angle. J.D. Cowan has this to say over at amazon:
Thoughtful and Wondrous
I don’t know much about poetry, being an uncultured rube, but I know what I like. Reading Ben Zwycky’s “Heroes and Wonders” was a reminder into what I do like from poetry. This is inspirational in the best way. Each poem is an ode to beauty, love, God, and all the great things this world offers. It’s a shock to the system to read something so pure and straightforward without cynicism and bleakness attached. It was a joy to read.
Highly recommended for those who want to be inspired, and those who tend to forget that life offers many great things. It’s a cure for the rainy day.
This kind of response to my work really makes my day, especially when it’s the type of literature they wouldn’t normally look at.
Take a chance on Heroes and Wonders, you might just like it more than you expect 🙂
Speaking of paperbacks, the second edition paperback of Nobility Among Us is now only $9.99 at amazon!
