“As for Master Trebor, he is a ring-bearer, a torch carrier, the legitimate bastard son of an endless line of bastard sons howling in the wilderness–dating back through Lorca, Cavafy, Whitman, to Catullus, Strato and beyond. For as long as man is commanded to roam these sacred woods, somewhere, from some lone hilltop, licentious yet austere, this voice will ever be heard to howl. And Trebor is just this wolf. Hear his voice and tremble.”

—Gavin Geoffrey Dillard,
author of The Naked Poet
