Singing a Man to Death, a collection of short stories, is notable for its range, sophistication, and readability. The fictions cover a range of milieus from England to Pacific islands to semimythical territories; ages from the contemporary to early medieval; and a range of ‘realisms’ from the naturalistic to the supernatural to the magicrealism. Displaying linguistic range and richness, characters are stranded in or confronted by disorientating milieus. …A strong collection.
