Lanagan, Margo. Black Juice. 2005. EOS: HarperCollins. 201p. ~The Nebula Award-winning ""Singing My Sister Down"" starts this dark collection of ten short, speculative fictions from Australian writer Lanagan. Why It Is Great: Stephen King once described short stories as a ""kiss in the dark from a stranger."" Lanagan leaves readers breathless with equal parts tongue and teeth, exploring the very best and worst of the human condition. Why It Is for Us: Lanagan's bitter fruits hold up to any story published for the adult market..
