Speaking in Tongues

By Ian McDonald

Rating: 4 stars

I mostly enjoyed this collection of short stories. McDonald’s lightness of touch and his eloquent use of language are present and correct but some of the playfulness of his other work is missing. Some of these stories are pretty dour, and some of them (probably) contain Meanings that I didn’t fathom in the single reading that I gave them. Still, there are others here that do show the playful spark that keeps me coming back to McDonald, and his evocative use of language still made this a very enjoyable read.
