A beautifully told story with colorful characters out of epic tradition, a tight and complex plot, and solid pacing. -- Booklist, starred review of On the Razor's Edge

Great writing, vivid scenarios, and thoughtful commentary ... the stories will linger after the last page is turned. -- Publisher's Weekly, on Captive Dreams

  2. There's a song about that, with the sexes reversed. It's called "The Dutchman."

    "Long ago, I used to be a young man,
    And dear Margaret remembers that for me."

    YouTube also has a nice video interview of the songwriter, Michael Peter Smith.
