"Every page teems with interest."

Robert Norton, Haiku Spirit, Ireland, 1997.

" ... the haibun is defiant in its individuality, an excellent evocation of the special spirit of this particular portion of England. The key to this is the author's unique tragic-comic-historic-ironic perception."

Martin Lucas, Blithe Spirit, UK, 1997.

"I think the introduction alone is worth the price of the volume."

Wim Lofvers, Woodpecker, Holland, 1998.

"The poet's unabashedly Romantic project is to evade the present and evoke the past, while [his] tone and atmosphere are distinctly contemporary. He brings [the] dead back; he revives them, with his vivid descriptions and lively detail."

Jeffrey Woodward,
Lynx online review, USA, February 2008.
