Customer Review

on 22 June 2007
There are some uneven stories in this collection, but one story - FAMILIAR - is quite possibly the most brilliantly written, absorbing and exhilarating dark fantasy short story I have ever read. I keep going back to it and reading it over and over, overcome by the sheer brilliance of both concept and language in this remarkable tale of a witch's unwanted familiar that will do anything to survive. The only thing I can compare it to at all is a similar sense of grandeur evoked in me when I read D.H.Lawrence's poem 'Little turtle.' If I had to die, and could choose to have penned one story before that moment arrived, it would be this singular one.
