Featured Author 

Christopher Cokinos

Weaving natural history, memoir, and the stories of maverick scientists, daring adventurers, and stargazing dreamers, this epic work takes us from Antarctica to outer space to tell the tale of how the study of meteorites became a scientific passion.

A famed polar explorer who risked personal ruin—and the lives of his crew—in a quest for massive iron meteorites hidden in an Arctic wasteland.

A nervy, obscure professor who staked his life against the scientific indifference of his day to become the world’s most prominent meteorite collector and researcher.

An Australian scientist confronted with a geological mystery in the Outback—the key to which might yet unlock a secret of evolution on planet Earth.

These characters and many other collectors, researchers, dreamers, schemers, and ordinary people populate Christopher Cokinos' The Fallen Sky. Through their foibles and successes, their adventures and tragedies, Cokinos unfolds the panoramic history of how science came to understand meteorites—the rocks that fall from space to the Earth—and how these stones reveal truths not only of the solar system, but of the human heart as well.


While it might be personally expedient for author Christopher Cokinos to be devoting all his energies to promoting his newest book, The Fallen Sky: An Intimate History of Shooting Stars he is devoting time to calling attention to the lit magazine Isotope. Cokinos the founding editor of Isotope, a professor of English at Utah State University, an author, and a poet, is the recipient of  Whiting Writers' Award for 2003 for his book Hope Is the Thing With Feathers: A Personal Chronicle of Vanished Birds

Isotope's future is in peril. Funding has been cut from the Utah State University, the managing editor's salary has been with drawn, and critical operating funds are absent   In a recent letter to Isotope readers, Cokinos asked for public support.

 *If you plan to donate to Isotope, please provide us with the following information along with your donation: name, address, phone (optional), e-mail (optional, but very helpful), amount of donation (made out to Isotope) and the purpose of donation (Managing Editor Salary Replacement Fund, Printing Costs, Discretionary or Other [specify]). Mail to: Isotope, Department of English, Utah State University, 3200 Old Main Hill, Logan, UT 84322-3200

"Here are some ways you can help:

  1. Donations. Any amount helps. Cash donations will contribute to the publication of the next issue and will buy us time to put in place longer-term solutions. They also show the university the extent of reader support. Mail to Isotope, Dept of English, 3200 Old Main Hill, Logan, UT  84322-3200.
  2. Words. University administration knows and values Isotope's achievements- but it would be good for USU's decision-makers to hear from our loyal and smart readers. From you. And right away! Please consider dropping a polite note of support to USU Provost Ray Coward and USU President Stan Albrecht, Old Main, USU, Logan, Utah 84322.

Thank you for considering taking some action on behalf of Isotope. Whatever you do, whatever you decide, we hope you will stay engaged in the decisions made in your communities-local to state to national to global-for we're living in a time when citizen engagement can make an even bigger difference than in the recent past. We'll keep you informed about Isotope's future."
