I tend to prefer novel length works in my own reading, but every so often, a collection of short fiction crops up that simply cannot be ignored. Australian author Margo Lanagan's collection Black Juice is a perfect example of such a book, for it is rare that our larger genre publishers (certainly in the UK) will consider such collections in the least bit marketable. Gollancz showed real faith in Lanagan's wonderful work by bringing it to the attention of British readers with a hard cover release last year - I hope it now reaches a wider audience with this mass market paperback edition. Winner of the 2005 World Fantasy Award for best collection.
