'She's bloody good, Margo Lanagan. She really is.' :)

There's a seriously glow-making review of Red Spikes by Colin Greenland, over at Strange Horizons. Here is one of my favourite bits:
She earths her violent and uncompromising imaginings in tactile and particular detail: in worlds built from the bottom up, from the rock and mud. They are felt and smelt by characters who are closest to the ground: children, servants, peasants, and animals. As negligible viewpoints go, a dead budgie takes a lot of beating.
