I really enjoyed this collection. Lots of good stories all written to a high standard. Patty Jansen has many stories based on heroines of different cultural backgrounds, and it's also good to see science fiction stories that are set in Australia, like "Highway". My favourite stories were "Little Boy Lost", which creeped me out, and "Never on a Birthday", which was both clever in concept and quite poignant. The fantasy stories are less successful overall than the science-fiction ones, but they are still interestingly done and avoid cliche. Good stuff!
