Macintyre's Improbable Bestiary
"MacIntyre's Improbably Bestiary is GRAND FUN " ?Ray Bradbury "F. Gwynplaine MacIntyre is the best darned light-verse writer since Ogden Nash." ?Isaac Asimov "The Improbably Bestiary is wickedly witty and fiendishly clever. I love it " ?John Brunner "From Bigfoot to Nessie to the Little Green Men, F. Gwynplaine MacIntyre celebrates the monsters of the imagination, exploring the wonder and dread that help make us human." ?David Brin "MacIntyre's Improbable Bestiary reminds me of W.S. Gilbert. Up until now, no other versifier has so deeply sounded the wells of the human funnybone." ?Gene Wolfe "MacIntyre's Improbable Bestiary is always ingenious, always entertaining, and often insired. The author has a spended gift for unlikely but satisfying rhymes, apparently without effort. I know of nothing quite like this book in English literature, although there are touches here and there in this book which remind me of Hilaire Belloc, W.S. Gilbert, The Ingoldsby Legends, and Flanders
