In the short story "The Writer's Child" by Tad Williams—collected in the short story anthology The Sandman: Book of Dreams edited by Neil Gaiman and Ed Kramer—Byron is depicted as reincarnated as a child's teddy bear. Described as "clubfoot" for having one leg shorter than the other, and called separately, "young lord" and simply "Byron", it is not til late in the story that he's revealed to be paying penalty for some kind of crime involving a woman named, "Ogusta". -Wikipedia
