"George Held's inexhaustible subject is the moon in all its phases, and he treats it with a quiet ear-pleasing lyricism and an impressive range. His moons shine on the world, and, bathed in their various lights, his imagination shines on the subjects it conjures and illuminates."--Michael Graves, author of ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSER (Cervena Barva Press)
and ADAM AND CAIN (Black Buzzard Press)

"A delightful, entertaining, and attractively presented collection celebrating our sidereal companion, the moon."--THE ICONOCLAST
