  • The absolute pinnacle of short fiction writers for any age group . . . I’m sure Lanagan has been compared to Angela Carter elsewhere but the often over-looked strange stories of Robert Aickman also spring to mind. Lanagan has a beguiling imagination while her prose is luxurious quicksand and its all too easy for the reader to become dragged under.

  • 10 emotional short stories - all beautifully and hauntingly written...These are not stories to race through, they are stories to be savoured.

    Parents in Touch
  • We should always make time for short stories. Especially if they are written by Margo Lanagan...Everything is earthy even when it's magic, and so, so believable. I get lost in the worlds she creates and sometimes it's quite difficult to wake myself up when I've finished reading.

    Jill Murphy, The Book Bag
