The Ale Boy’s Feast – The White Strand of The Auralia Thread

“The Ale Boy’s Feast is a great, sprawling poem. Its rich language moves and breathes and awakens every sense. Jeffrey Overstreet has made something beautiful here.

The first draft of The Ale Boy's Feast is very roughly drafted, and by the time the fireworks go off on the 4th, I'll have given a readable version to the editors.
