Reviews

  • "A wide-ranging and often hard-hitting collection, these ten tales stimulate response, contemplation and reaction. Larger-than-life characters, setting and scenarios combined with hihg-impact immediacy of effect and an ability to linger long in mind and imagination make these sure-fire and engaging winners weith even the most sceptical reader"

    Jake Hope, The Bookseller
  • "Margo Lanagan's short stories take place in worlds not quite our own, and yet each one illuminates what it is to be human . . . Within fairly safe confines they do indeed surprise, they certainly intrigue and best of all, they show just exactly what can be done in the short story format"

    Phil Hewitt
  • "Hold on tightly and prepare to be amazed at what a brilliant writer can do in just a few short pages"

    Young Post
  • "These works demonstrate a powerful sense of the marvellous"
