Dialogue clever and full of bright snatches of Celtic humour." - Brown, Ireland in Fiction 1106. Several of the stories are supernatural and are rather nicely told. "'The Other Country'" offers a fresh (and bitter) take on the tale of a revenant. Bleiler (1978), p. 135. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992).
