''US writer and teacher whose Finnbranch sequence, Yearwood (1980), Undersea (1982) and Winterking (1985), presents again and again, in cyclical form, versions of the birth, heroic adulthood and death of a hero named Finn. Though much of the imagery accompanying and intensifying the reiterations of Finn's life-course derives from Celtic fantasy, and inevitably relates to the Finn MacCool cycle, the sequence is in no clear sense obedient to any single underlying Northern story, Celtic or Arthurian, though elements from these and other cycles appear throughout. The language throughout is strikingly intense, allusive, dislocatingly dreamlike, vivid'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
