..".readers will be engrossed by Eads's skillful weaving of the past and present through the troubled psychology of sympathetic, fully human characters." - Publishers Weekly "A darkly hallucinatory and unsettling fever-dream of a novel, Lord Byron's Prophecy offers doppelgangers, apocalyptic visions, ominous portents, and eerie hauntings as it recounts a centuries-spanning tale of guilt-and appetite-driven men whose suppressed secrets and illicit desires poison their own lives and those around them." - Brett Josef Grubisic for Lambda Literary "The notorious Romantic poet spiritually presides over a modern-day fable of forbidden desire, apocalyptic foreboding, and campus melodrama." - Kirkus Reviews "Lord Byron's Prophesy is a tale of layered times that all share the same lurking, dizzying madness. From Byron himself, to current-day Professor Fane, and to Fane's son Gordon--all of these men are dipping into the same waters of vision and dread, unable to resist their own destructive impulses, despite a serious sense of doom. This is a book of poetry, prophesy, and the dangerous pitfalls of paternity; it leaves a reader hoping for sanity, but suspicious that it's not in their stars." - L.A. Fields, Lambda Literary Award finalist for My Dear Watson"
