Bill quotes Dave Zeltserman:
"According to Don Herron's biography of Willeford
(titled appropriately: WILLEFORD), 'Willeford was always perturbed that no reviewer had caught on that COCKFIGHTER was consciously modeled on THE ODYSSEY, complete with a one-eyed fighting cock standing in for the Cyclops.'"

********************* In the next sentence Dave notes that he didn't see much similarity between the stories, either. It makes me wonder if it isn't another case of Willeford doing what he does so well... a little leg pulling.
