“Diana Comet and Other Improbable Stories is joyful, poignant, silly, clever, and once finished it cries out for a second read if only for the satisfaction of being able to say, “I know who that is!” when a recurring character slips past in the background. Names, people, and places which seem incidental on a first pass, like the foreign language books mentioned in the prologue or an eternally youthful pirate queen, take on new significance. McDonald has written a fantastical and at once familiar world in which all of us might find a home, if only for a little while.”
– From the nice review over here. Thanks to them for the kind words!
