(PRWEB) July 1, 2005
To the unitiated, the phrase "The Panther Cycles" is meaningless, but to the thousands around the world who hung on every turn of phrase and passionate thought, these nearly 650 works, the diary of a scandalous love affair between married poet William F. DeVault and his muse, mark one of the first breakthroughs in the "digital renaissance".
Ten years from their first writing they have been collected into a single book from publisher Lulu.com, THE COMPLEAT PANTHER CYCLES. Annotated by the poet, who was christened the "Romantic Poet of the Internet" by Yahoo largely for their impact, this is the definitive volume of these epic and intimate works. From the sublime to the bombastic, the gently wistful to the unremittingly erotic, these are poems that honestly and earnestly spoke of pain, lust, betrayal and affection to a worldwide base of eager fans and lovers.
The cover and internal illustrations feature New York-based model and musician Jillian Ann (http://www.JillianAnn.com). Effusive in his praise for this new contributor to the legends, DeVault states "From the moment I first saw her pictures, I realized that she could perfectly represent both the real and imagined aspects of the love and passion I felt when I wrote these works."
Available July 18th through most bookstores and directly through the poet's website at http://www.cityoflegends.com, the glossy 600-page volume carries a suggested retail price of $29.95. Advance orders for limited edition "first day" copies are available through the author's website at http://www.cityoflegends.com.
This volume caps the trilogy of volumes released by the poet in a 96-day span, beginning with the April release of his Invocato, then June's The Morgantown Suite Poems.
