Swanns neo-romantic fantasies of the past are unique.
He uses the stuff of myth but with twists and inventions of his own.
Baird Searles, The Village Voice
His ornate enigmas of the past are located where species divisions
are fluid, where history dissolves and melts into myth.
He deifies the natural world. And few have done it better.
Andrew Darlington, The Mentor
A remarkable writer...
He writes blissfully and beautifully separated from trend and fashion;
he writes his own golden thing his own way
Theodore Sturgeon, The New York Times
