Mark Young rakes the zeitgeist, separating memes from disparate media.  Everything looks like something else.  Nothing is the same.  some more strange meteorites is the work of a master poet at the top of his game. --Tom Beckett 
Chance figures brightly in some more strange meteorites. The poet as appreciator-in-chief discovers or invents a voice to house and sing each philosophically vivid poem. He locates kindred mouths and brains that carry rich history and disconnection, matching each to each. A masterful spirit of inclusiveness pervades this extremely satisfying book, linking unlikely figures, finding the future in the past, and inviting the reader to follow the writer’s brilliant lead.—Sheila E. Murphy
