"P. H. Newcombe has created a lovely and lively lyrical piece of
storytelling, equal parts reverie, homily and simple old-fashioned
fun. The Bard of Biscuit City is an allegorical lament; thoughtful
and highly personal, a charming and engaging work of poetry for
adults of all ages."
B. Miron, Master of Arts English Literature"One cannot help but be struck by Mr. Newcombe's imaginative, creative writing in The Bard of Biscuit City. With rich descriptions of colorful scenes, complex characters and mysterious plot twists masterfully woven into a rhythmic tapestry, it evokes delight and wonder while raising the question, "Who, indeed, is the mysterious Bard of Biscuit City?"
Ralph Walker, Writer"A return to story-telling! No need for a computer screen as this cast of characters leaps from the page vividly and hilariously. Your mind races to keep up with the subtle, yet, in your face twists and turns. I loved it. I want to have dinner with the voices in Mr. Newcombe's head."
Jim Shield, Actor, 5-Time World Champion Outrider, 4-Time Calgary Stampede Champion Outrider"The Bard of Biscuit City reminded me of the precious gift and journey of Life: to live, love, laugh and cry through all of its ups, downs and in-betweens. Mr. Newcombe expresses it beautifully."
