'Margo Lanagan’s Singing My Sister Down and Other Stories brings together selected stories from four previous collections with three new ones. They are almost all set in the archetypal world of mediaeval fantasy, popular in YA literature, a category in which Lanagan is a multi-award-winning writer. However, these dark meditations on gender, patriarchal violence, ritual and death also afford a rich and unsettling experience for adults.' (Introduction)
